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

DWTS - The Results

Sheryl Crow is the guest singer this week. I like her. She doesn't know me.

Since Adam and Julianne performed the encore dance, that probably means he's been eliminated. We'll wait and see, but that is what happened last week with Steve.

Two couples are safe - Jason & Edyta and Kristi & Mark.

Some young dancers performed the samba and paso doble. They were eight and nine years old. Impressive! There was a neat segment about the professional dancers. I love to watch them dance but still miss Maksim.

Now for more safe couples - Marlee & Fabian, Cristian & Cheryl, Mario & Karina, Shannon & Derek, and Marissa & Tony.

Bottom two - Priscilla & Louie and Adam & Julianne. I think I just might be right, and I am.

Now Adam can get back to doing what he does best. Meanwhile, it was fun watching Zorro on a bike! Hilarious!
