Deep peace of the quiet earth to you. 

Perennial fortifications.

May 23, 2017


All I know is that we're stronger than we think. This isn't news and, as pep talks go, it isn't even that inspired. But it's true, and I'm not sure if truth needs a brand, a hook, a catchphrase. Truth is in your bones, and you know it whether you want to or not. 


So. Whatever it is, remember this: your bones and blood share more in common with the sea, the stars, and the stones than they do anything else. Those are the relations I claim and, dear goddess, I hope they're proud to claim me, to claim all of us toiling away down here, tired hands in the earth, tired heart against the stones, tired head in the grass.
