11:48 am - you guessed it...

so here's another one, dedicated to 'lj friends'...

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born." -- Anais Nin

11:46 am - loneliness, one woman's perspective

"Man can never know the kind of loneliness a woman knows. Man lies in a woman's womb only to gather strength, he nourishes himself from this fusion, and then he rises and goes into the world, into his work, into battle, into art. He is not lonely. He is busy. The memory of the swim in amniotic fluid gives him energy, completion. The woman may be busy too, but she feels empty. Sensuality for her is not only a wave of pleasure in which she has bathed, and a charge of electric joy at contact with another. When man lies in her womb, she is fulfilled, each act of love a a taking of man within her, an act of birth and rebirth, of child-bearing and man-bearing. Man lies in her womb and is reborn each time anew with a desire to act, to BE. But for woman, the climax is not in the birth, but in the moment the man rests inside of her." --Anais Nin

10:42 pm - the kitty-cat bird

The Kitty-Cat Bird by Theodore Roethke

The Kitty-Cat Bird, he sat on a Fence
Said the Wren, your Song isn't worth ten pence
You're a Fake, you're a Fraud, you're a Hor-rid Pretense!
-Said the Wren to the Kitty-Cat Bird.
You've too many Tunes, and none of them Good:
I wish you would act like a bird really should,
Or stay by yourself down deep in the wood
-Said the Wren to the Kitty-Cat Bird.

You mew like a Cat, you grate like a Jay:
You squeak like a Mouse that's lost in the Hay,
I wouldn't be You for even a day
-Said the Wren to the Kitty-Cat Bird

The Kitty-Cat Bird, he moped and he cried.
Then a real cat came with a Mouth so Wide,
That the Kitty-Cat Bird just hopped inside;
"At last I'm myself!"-and he up and died
-Did the Kitty- the Kitty-Cat Bird.

You'd better not laugh; and don't say, "Pooh!"
Until you have thought this Sad Tale through:
Be sure that whatever you are is you
-Or you'll end like the Kitty-Cat Bird.

9:35 pm - an aria, just for you

yes, you.

Bachianas brasileiras No. 5: Aria (Cantilena), composed by Heitor Villa-Lobos


Late, a slow, transparent cloud becomes rose-coloured.

over the space, dreamy and beautiful!
The moon comes out softly in the infinite,
adorning the evening, like a gentle maiden
dreamily getting ready and making herself beautiful;
with yearnings of soul to be beautiful,
she cries to the sky and the earth, all nature!

The birds cease singing at her sad laments,
and the sea reflects all its richness...
Moonlight awakes softly now,
the cruel longing which laughs and cries!
Late, a slow, transparent cloud becomes rose-coloured,

over the space, dreamy and beautiful!

9:57 pm - love's greatest enemy...

"Anxiety is love's greatest killer. It makes one feel as you might when a drowning man holds unto you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic." -- Anais Nin
