There are hundreds of posts and pages here, with all kinds of material. This home page shows the latest posts, and they tend to come in waves. So if you should see lots of poetry posts in a row, or lots of lengthy articles on this or that, please don’t assume that that’s all there is to the site!

Seek out enough information

We are still on Earth
Yet farther from nature than ever—
And having no time
To dance with her.
