there are physically attractive women everywhere. it’s quick and easy to fall into the gravitational pull of human aesthetics. such trivial yet physical matters are nice, yet the branch that really matters is the intelligence and passion born of living, the ability to move and to be moved by subtleties of the mind and spirit are what really counts. it takes people years to realize this, but took me a short epiphany when i decoded the small footprints along a deserted beach. when i think of all the cargo in the ships that never made it to the shore. when i watched all the curtained faces of people walking down artificially lit streets. and when i think of how long i must walk till i see my campfire in michigan or new york or Illinois before i know i’m home.
