Why this?

The occasional poem of my own and a generous helping of work by others that I find inspiring. Site is named for a beloved book by one of my favorite writers, Italo Calvino, whose fanciful work lights--and delights--my soul.

Words of the poet-mystic Anna Kamienska

There's no art in giving what you have. The art is giving what you haven't got. The gift of empty hands.


Accidents often change he course of science. But you need someone who can read the "accidents'" meanings. It's just the same with life's accidents. You need to decode their script.


Holy nothingness, have mercy on us.


Human hands are sometimes more intelligent than faces.
