A Quick Note

It may be a few days before I have the subscription and other details ironed out for http://wakingspirals.com. It is a work in progress tho there will be daily postings and the site will become ultimately all that I wish it to be.
Thank you

Farewell and Thanks For All the Fish

 

“Don’t be dismayed by good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.”

-Richard Bach

 

Well this is it folks, Sometime in the next 24 hours, this site will vanish. Rising from its ashes tho will be http://wakingspirals.com . The site will evolve over the next few months. It will feature the quotes, poetry, short essays and artwork that I’ve had here plus a web shop where you can buy prints of my art and order tarot readings among other things.
I want to thank everyone who has commented and liked my work or even those who just stopped by. Here is hoping we meet again over at the new site.
Blessings, G

Understanding

 

The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand.
— Frank Herbert

 

Innocence is often the price we pay for knowledge and often it is a worthwhile exchange. When we encounter something new we often try to connect it with something that we have known before. When we can do this, we often avoid delving deeper as there is no reason to. We feel we understand it already. It is only when we can’t make an automatic connection that we seek more knowledge in order to reach a level of understanding. However once we grasp something we can no longer claim innocence of it.
Blessings, G

Name It

 

“To name something is to wait for it in the place you think it will pass.”
— Amiri Baraka

 

Name your fears
Name your hopes
Name your dreams
Name your loves and your hates
for to name something
gives you power over it.
You can call on something that has a name
You can invoke it and evoke it
Draw it out into the open
and deal with it openly.
Compare that to a nameless dread
or a feeling of hope
or a breath of love.
Naming it makes it real.
— G A Rosenberg
