”Human desire is sourced in transcience, in coming to mindfulness of the equivocities of becoming, something more and other is communicated.” Desmond, G&B 142

I’ve paid no atten-

tion to the fall equinox

‘til now, my life de-

fined by deadlines and

power lunches. Yesterday,

down by the cove, sun-

light framed an egret

and filled it in with soft light

over its own white.

I told someone who

said, ”Well, yeah, the equinox,” not

paying attention.
