The Waking

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I cannot go.

We think by feeling. What is there to know?
I hear my being dance from ear to ear.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Of those so close beside me, which are you?
God bless the Ground! I shall walk softly there,
And learn by going where I have to go.

Light takes the Tree, but who can tell us how?
The lowly worm climbs up a winding stair;
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Great Nature has another thing to do
To you and me; so take the lively air,
And, lovely, learn by going where to go.

This shaking keeps me steady. I should know.
What falls away is always. And is near.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I learn by going where I have to go.

--Theodore Roethke


Joy's Updates - Straight from the Horse's Mouth.
Friday, September 23, 2005  

I've decided on my TV-watching schedule now after seeing some of the new shows.

Must See (already set the DVR)

West Wing, Boston Legal, Grey's Anatomy, Monk, House, Lost, Craig Ferguson (Late, Late Show) and these Awards shows: Oscars, Emmys, Tonys

Will See

Law & Order (original, SVU, CI), Desperate Housewives, ER, Two and a Half Men, Bones, The Apprentice, Project Runway, Medium, Numbers, Curb Your Enthusiasm

When I Need A Good Cry

Three Wishes

Probably Will Watch

How I Met Your Mother, Out of Practice, Commander-in-Chief, My Name is Earl

These choices are based on their staying on the air. I just read that Head Cases has already been cancelled by FOX because of ratings. Networks used to give a show time to find an audience. There are hits that took a while to catch on. Not saying this might have been one of them, but mistakes have been made.

I know they are good, but I never got into the CSI shows. I really like Marg Helgenberger and her husband Alan Rosenberg and do watch that one from time to time as well as the New York version. Since I have so many shows I watch as it is, I try not to add to it so much. Gilmore Girls is another show that's good that I try to watch when I can. I do get my money's worth from cable since I watch movies on HBO as well as some other shows here and there. Now my secret is out about what I watch. What about you? What do you like?
