such things to be.

Standard

kinders get ready to enter a ‘new/old world.’

“so many worlds,

so much to do,

so little done,

such things to be.”

kakimi.

Standard

late night friends chatting about the current state of things.

“kakimi chertyami oni viigrali holodnuyu voinu?”

this translates roughly to:

“how the hell did these people win the cold war?” 

― dave barry, big trouble

lift.

Standard

had to catch an early morning flight

out of the little village of new york city

super shuttle came to the rescue

arriving right on time at 3:20am

picking up 6 other people along the way –

2 young women speaking korean

1 southern man speaking with a heavy twang

1 set of parents who giggled and hummed along with the radio

and their two year old boy 

who yelled out ‘woah, man!’

every few mintues for no apparent reason

making everyone laugh over and over

couldn’t have had a better crew to send me off on my way

what a lift.

“i love those connections that make this big old world feel like a little village.”

a good place.

Standard

what a lovely little place

discovered on a walk in the woods

nestled beneath the old trees

resting on a blanket

of the softest pine needles

open to all who happen by

who lives here?

“when you’re wide open, the world is a good place.”
