My favorite words are thirsty.
To be said or heard, pulled up from the depths.
Within you: there
secretly I am..
.
Once, I found myself surrounded by windowless people.
There must be light inside, right? So I start to throw rocks, bricks, anything
to break a window into the dreariness cast. We are all
so dependent on this light. Do you understand the task?
Why do I wonder then, How cruel am I...

please pop over to Tumbleword's other site
for comments, and a poem, links.

Hi there, I checked out your blog when I saw that Andrea, whose blog I just love, had given you an award and I must say I am very impressed, and smitten, with your photographs.
They really have a poetic quality that's unique. I'll be checking in back soon for me beauty.

I absolutely love the Simone Weil quote on your profile and was wondering if you could tell me from which one of her books it comes from? Thanks!

I've tagged you (you are in people's mind these days) "Show me a special something, important or beautiful or meaningful or full of memories for you - or all of that - and tell me about it."

Hope you don't mind :)

mary-laure: I have tried to figure out where the Simone Weil quote comes from: so much of my writing is put away--i did a lot of research on women's voices in graduate school and had this on my fridge for so long...it is so powerful and true! If I find the research, i will post on your wonderful blog. Thanks you for the beautiful kind words.
