oh, earth, you are too wonderful for anybody to realize you

[last summer, from a taxi window]

i am usually so astonished to be somewhere
that i will happily record what seems to be
somewhat mundane to others (although the
driver of this particular taxi made the ride
anything but mundane; a little car, rather
rickety, but capable of great speed on the
highway). anyway. thinking, today, of Thornton
Wilder's Emily, and how happy i am that the
Stage Manager had the best possible answer.

saints and poets, folks. saints and poets.
