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.
Thursday, March 06, 2008  

Well, Christian won on Project Runway. This was a good season without anyone evil like the Cruella of Season One, Wendy Pepper. As horrid as she was, she pales in comparison to Omarosa (literally) from The Apprentice who is just dreadful. I though I'd never have to see her again, but the Donald brought her back on Celebrity Apprentice. Why? She isn't a celebrity. What has she ever done except be on his reality show? It's like Elisabeth Hasselbek from The View whose only claim to fame was being on Survivor, which I've never watched. She's married to a football player and is the Republican voice on the show.

But back to Project Runway - I've watched every season of it and just love it. There's something about it and Top Chef that intrigue me. Bravo has compelling shows like those that are a study in human relations and talent. I've been reading commentaries on Project Runway on David Dust's wonderful blog. It's made watching it even better. He said he'll do this for Top Chef, too, and I'm so looking forward to that. If you check it out, scroll on down past the photos of the hot male models to the commentary unless you wish to linger. I know I do.
