What incredible good fortune, the vulture appearing -- it almost stopped my heart! Eventually, you'll be able to witness baby vultures fledging!!

The Donald Hall quote is beautiful. A school for feelings! And his distinction between Apollonic-visual beauty and the beauty of deep Dionysian immersion.

If poetry can teach feelings, or how to enter a feeling, it is crucial to the development of empathy. The secret is the music in language.

And you got the music in you, Memsical!!!

Thanks, Bill and Andrew! I hope it isn't too pushy or presumptuous of me to conveniently provide this linky.
