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.
