poetry of the day

Some Rumi worth ruminating over...

Who makes these changes?
I shoot an arrow right.
It lands left.
I ride after a deer and find myself
chased by a hog.
I plot to get what I want
and end up in prison.
I dig pits to trap others
and fall in.

I should be suspicious
of what I want.

- Rumi Mathnawi
from The Essential Rumi, version by Coleman Barks

Toronto daze

I'm doing pretty well in Toronto right now. I have a contract job that just got extended (until March) and am making enough to get by and go out for dinner once in awhile. My job is a bit boring, but I have good working conditions and am making good contacts. I'm drumming in two bands and going to a film club meeting twice a week to learn more about creating my own media.

I'm glad I came back here, it's obviously part of the greater picture. Toronto is a great city and many will benefit from what I'm learning, doing, and becoming here.

That said, I miss BC & I'll be back there eventually. Hopefully with the means to manifest a nice piece of land and/or with a soul mate.

Until then, I will enjoy what's awesome about the East.
