where we left it

trail’s end —
the taste of wild onion
still sharp on my tongue

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

gathering driftwood

where the forest meets the shore

wild violets

 

 

 










quiet house–

the chess game

where we left it

long red light–

she dusts

the dashboard

EverythingMovie  I’m looking forward to the movie version of Jonathan Safran Foer‘s

novel Everything Is Illuminated – despite the casting of the ever-wooden Elijah

Wood in the lead role.  Charlie Rose had a good interview Friday night (Sept. 10,

2005) with first-time director Liev Schreiber, who also wrote the screenplay. 

 


tiny check  I enjoyed the George Stephanopoulos interviews with Sen. Barack Obama

and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, on ABC “This Week.”  As we did last week,

Obama stressed the Administration’s inability to empathize with the poor — in

their everyday lives and when faced with disasters.   The Dalai Lama emphasized

the need to stay calm and stay hopeful, despite facing great trauma.
