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

Wednesday Reviews Foiled

I messed up and managed to delete Lost which is the main show I wanted to watch tonight. Of course I did this before I saw any of it. Technology is great (love the DVR) as long as the finger on the remote has some control. I hope one of you watched it and will email me or comment and let me know what happened. Grrrrr! Argh! Can't believe it! So someone please tell me. What happened to Walt? Did the people on the raft make it back to shore? What was in the hatch? Is Sawyer dead? And what about Naomi?

Martha Stewart's Apprentice has the same format as the Donald's does except she says they don't fit in and then writes them a condolence letter.

E-Ring is predictable. I like Dennis Hopper and Benjamin Bratt, and they are fun to watch. Hopper is the maverick crusty colonel who listens to 60's rock music. Bratt is the idealistic, iconoclastic major with a girlfriend in the CIA. There's the inevitable ticking clock and heroic ending. Not sure I'll watch it since I plan to watch Lost from now on. Did I mention that I messed up the recording?

Law & Order was its usual self and has become an institution. Sometimes I watch it and sometimes CSI: New York because I like the actors in it. Head Cases is quirky, so I might watch it some, too. I know this because I accidentally recorded it.
