...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 is a mystery, that somehow the patience department has gotten compartmentalized.
We may have patience for teaching kids but not for threading a needle... patience for cooking for 20 and none left to talk to them... patience to read a novel, but not for any learning curve...


I’m too impatient to do it right,
but too stubborn not to have it be perfect.”
