"you shall not look through my eyes...you shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self."

i have returned to an old routine: starting my day with the reading of poetry while i eat breakfast.
it's been absolute bliss, and sets a deliberate and wondrous tone for my day.
most often i turn to whitman or to keats--poets that are essential witnesses to the beauty & suffering of this world.
simply from reading their words i have been inspired not only in my daily life,
but have found inspiration for my academic pursuits, which i cannot wait to find time to research and write about.

words of poets have always guided me and brought me great peace & comfort. 
they allow me to choose if i'd like to stay near the surface or dive in deep.

here's to a deliberate day...

Dear Ann Marie,
wonderful pictures... those colorshades, poetic as the words of keats and whitman. Like tones of color and music find together.

Best,
Ariane.
