Today I realized that February is about forgiveness. This coming month, the theme and motivation and primary action of my life is to forgive. First of all, myself. And then anyone else I’ve ever blamed. And then the god of my understanding. And then the corporations, the republicans, the polluters, the species-extincters, my mother, my father, my siblings, my friends, that guy who cut me off the other day at the intersection of River and Water in downtown Santa Cruz. Everyone. And then, again, most of all, myself.

Come, Come, whoever you are!
Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving.
Come. This is not a caravan of despair.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve broken your vow
a thousand times,
still come,
and yet again, Come!
(translated by Coleman Barks)


not a poem

went to a little party on the beach tonight for my friend Lauren’s birthday
arrived at sunset and took photos
not sure if there are any good ones
but I can’t download them to my computer

my computer is so full that it can’t breathe anymore
so I bought an external 500 GB drive today
and i’m going to put all my photos on it tonight
and delete most of them off my computer tomorrow
i’m worried that the organization will be lost because i have a mac and the one bad thing about the mac is that all the photos are in iphoto and not organized in folders because i haven’t figured out how to do that and if you thought this post was a poem because of how it was written before

it was not a poem
its just lacking punctuation or capitalization and it’s one big long thought


and now you can finally take a breath
and say what of interest is even in this blog
and to that I cannot answer
because nothing very interesting is in this blog

not even a photo
