"I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world."
I watch people I know walk by like ghosts
I want to drive for hours
in no direction at all
with the dying sun on my face
"Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life."
