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

Rock On!

This post is probably written just to Chris since I don't know of anyone else who reads this who also watches Rockstar Supernova. I had a strong feeling that Ryan would be the one to go this week. I'm not sure who it will be next week since it's pretty close with some of them. My favorite is Dilana. She's amazing. The first week I thought it would be between her and Lukas, but that changed. Now I think it will be between Dilana and Toby. I like Storm except for the thing she does with her mouth. So who's next, Chris? Magni maybe? The ones chosen for performances with Supernova have been Dilana, Toby, and Lukas in that order which makes me wonder if they might be eliminated in that order. Guess we'll find that out next week. Btw, Lukas didn't look right with them, and Dilana did a much better job performing "Lithium" than he did. She was mesmerizing! Anybody else watch it and have any opinions?


I don't have any strong opinions yet for a winner of Project Runway except that I really like Michael and his designs. Kayne is too over the top and is in the right business designing beauty pageant gowns, but I like him and think he'd be fun to know. Uli does good work and seems nice. Jeffrey and Angela are beyond irritating, and Laura is pregnant again! Vincent is a trip but has grown on me. So who knows? I love this show and enjoy watching it. I got Tina hooked on it and am working on Jackie now. She also watches Dancing with the Stars, so we can discuss that. My niece Amy watches these shows but doesn't read my blog that often, so we don't get to discuss TV shows as much as we would if we were more in touch.
