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

TV Shows

Any discussion of Project Runway, Dancing with the Stars, or the new shows? What a surprise they kept all four finalists on PR. They've been creative all season with projects and decisions. There's an article in New York Magazine about how Jeffrey might not have done the sewing for his runway collection. He's pretty unlikeable, but I didn't think he would cheat. Kara and the shoes were a big deal last season, but this is more serious. I'm looking forward to seeing their collections.

Monique just might win on Dancing. She danced well on all the dances so far. I like a lot of them this time and love watching the pros dance together, especially Maksim and Cheryl. Maksim is great to watch even if he's just standing there.

I tried to like Smith but just can't. I really don't like any of the characters on there, and Virginia Madsen barely gets to act. Class is good which was a surprise since I haven't heard much about it. Have any of you seen it? I like Shark but expected to. What new shows do you like?
