...to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line. -H D Thoreau

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be
to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. -
T. S. Eliot

Oh, for writing out loud!
second wind...
Nothing awakens the heart or stops it cold more than dirtying pages. To me, writing is much like gardening. Carrying my tools out, I turn to a place looking as though it needs a bit of tending to. I have a sit. Before long, using a word dragnet, I’ve raked in and set up a few pages, and weeded through verbosity.

I heard KR will be writing an autobiography. Good thing. I hope it’s full of lies. He’s one of my heroes.

116 Having just spied Keith Richards on the cover of the Rolling Stone, I ran back to the studio to ask who would go get it for me. The Lonnie-man joked,
“It’s just like porn, after the first time you buy, it’s no big deal.”
A kind soul left and came back with the tabloid. I ran into the oval office showing off the cover image.
Seeing it made Lonnie grimace, “Jayne, I just had lunch!”

...the river is flowing, rolling and flowing. the river is flowing, down to the sea...
