Silence and absence

It is always in the moments of deepest emotion that one is beset by silence. Today, asked to articulate love for a sister, I am dumb. Presence can make such a difference.


And again, I resolve to expect nothing. I shall give freely, and watch my sadness and my happiness flit and fall like autumn leaves.

How we write

I have been silenced into writing again. How long the waiting!

On the fundamentalism of belief

" any belief system involves a degree of illusion, and therefore cannot be defended by mind alone. "
Bless Martin Amis for this…


The heart and mind keep parallel time in this waiting.
Work grows clear of the ache like leaves into the sun
and the freed hours drop shapelier
from the potter’s coaxing hands.


Today, utterly divested of illusions about the self, I learned how music can set fire to the senses.


Sakhi, tell me the meaning of love. If it is not to be as a river to the sea, what is it? I, woman, only know to be water in the three spheres–rain and fertility and oblation. And so have I drowned in myself, so have I danced in grief that they thought was abandon, so am I condemned to journey perpetually, always merging yet never merged. I know how not to be. Is there another way?
