Strength

August 25, 2019

♡this

“I don’t really want to become normal, average, standard. I want merely to gain in strength, in the courage to live out my life more fully, enjoy more, experience more. I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits.”

Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

Sadly… That’s Just the Way It Is

May 31, 2018

“Men come and go, cities rise and fall, whole civilizations appear and disappear-the earth remains, slightly modified. The earth remains, and the heartbreaking beauty where there are no hearts to break…. I sometimes choose to think, no doubt perversely, that man is a dream, thought, an illusion, and only rock is real. Rock and sun.”

Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness

Watch “Hillerman Writers Conference (2015)” on YouTube

May 2, 2018

Going though my personal archive and realized I hadn’t shared these memories on-line! I really miss this conference and working for and with wonderful, creative spirits every year.

Hillerman Photo Feature

April 8, 2018

It’s awesome to have my photo featured on Anne Hillerman’s web site. She is New Mexico’s own… New York Times, Best Selling Author. Her newest book was just released this month.

I believe her photographer took this picture of me in 2015. I’ve leaned out since then, but this photo is a historical keeper anyhow. I think it was choosen because I just happen to be holding one of her famous father’s books in one hand, and her book (launched that year) in another. It is great to see a daughter carry on her father’s legacy, whilst still building her own.

My girlfriend, Anna lives in Los Alamos. She also caught a glympse of me in the Los Alamos Monitor. My photo ran with an article promoting an annual dinner for writers on April 25th.

Anyway

August 24, 2016

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.

~~~Kent M. Keith, The Silent Revolution

Assassin’s Wish

July 30, 2016

“What is it that I’ll
want from you? Not
love: that would be
too much to ask. Not
forgiveness, which
isn’t yours to bestow.
Only a listener,
perhaps; only
someone who will
see me. Don’t prettify
me though, whatever
else you do: I have
no wish to be a
decorated skull.

But I leave myself
in your hands. What
choice do I have?
By the time you read
this last page, that…
if anywhere…
is the only place
I will be.”

Keeper of Fragile Things

June 29, 2016

“What you burnt,
broke, and tore is
still in my hands.
I am the keeper
of fragile things
and I have kept
of you what is
indissoluble.”

~~~•| Anaïs Nin
