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

Out of the Loop

How am I just now learning about Kathy Griffin maybe being engaged to squillionaire Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak? I'm not sure I know what to think about this, but they seemed quite compatible on her D-List show. Interesting.

It's the first time I've watched her show, but since it was on after the Bravo A-List Awards, I decided to check it out. The Bravo awards show was different, which we'd expect because they are cutting-edge with their programming. The first of their shows I started watching and still like is Inside the Actor's Studio. When Will Ferrell imitated James Lipton on Saturday Night Live, I realized how popular it was. Now many celebrities mention watching Project Runway, which makes me even sadder that it won't be on Bravo any more. That's just wrong.

There are many Bravo shows I don't watch because mostly I watch those competitions like Project Runway, Top Chef, and Shear Genius. Step It Up & Dance wasn't as good as the others, but I watched the whole season.
