The great writers keep writing about the cold dark place within, the water under a frozen lake or the secluded, camouflaged hole. The light they shine on this hole, this pit, helps us cut away or step around the brush and brambles; then we can dance around the rim of the abyss, holler into it, measure it, throw rocks in it, and still not fall in. It can no longer swallow us up. And we can get on with things. Anne Lamott

When you love something like reading—or drawing or music or nature—it surrounds you with a sense of connection to something great. If you are lucky enough to know this, then your search for meaning involves whatever that Something is. It’s an alchemical blend of affinity and focus that takes us to a place that feels as close as we ever get to ‘home.’ It’s like pulling into our own train station after a long trip—joy, relief, pleasant exhaustion... If a writer or artist creates from a place of truth and spirit and generosity, then I may be able to enter and ride this person’s train back to my own station. Anne Lamott

April is the cruelest month, breeding 
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing  
Memory and desire, stirring 
Dull roots with spring rain.
