Notebook Again 

Cover of Planet of the Blind....man and dog....

I climbed to the top of Helsinki’s highest ski jump and swayed with my arms out like a fluid moon-struck Jesus but I then climbed down again, thinking of my mother.

Boyhood: in the courtyard while the evening news came from the radio, I played with a wooden top and laughed because it sounded like my cat.

I love small littered towns one sees from the train.

The sun in memory is always as strong as before.

Theodore Roethke. My buttercup.

Water shining through trees. What a bargain!

**

Blind I drive home through the glitter of moon-skin treetops.
