Seizing on a piece of business, I become tiny, eager, efficient: roiled water I cannot see into. But to really live is to expand like a pupil in the dark, like a pool gradually seen into. If I do not waste time, I am wasting my time.
I am a huge fan of James Richardson, so I’ll be posting some of his aphorisms and poetry now and then. Link below goes to Amazon (non-affiliate, just a plain link). He’s an astounding author and I highly recommend Vectors for aphorisms and Reservations as an intro to his poetry.
