Underthecurrent


I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone

search engine humor. I type how to and it supplies:

how to tie a tie
how to kiss
how to lose weight fast
how to get pregnant
how to write a cover letter
how to cook a turkey
how to download youtube videos
how to write a resume
how to roll a joint
how to train your dragon

I think if I had all those things covered, I might just be the perfect wife.

Today Rolf Potts posted this on Vagablogging:

Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any misery, any depression, since after all you don’t know what work these conditions are doing inside you? Why do you want to persecute yourself with the question of where all this is coming from and where it is going? Since you know, after all, that you are in the midst of transitions and you wished for nothing so much as to change. If there is anything unhealthy in your reactions, just bear in mind that sickness is the means by which an organism frees itself from what is alien; so one must simply help it to be sick, to have its whole sickness and to break out with it, since that is the way it gets better.
–Ranier Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (1929)

I feel so Kissing Jessica Stein when I write this, but Rilke has become a favorite in the last year… and this is a gem of gems.
