  1. Common sense…

    Two Native American proverbs( quoted by Jonathan Carrol):

    “Listening to a liar is like drinking warm water”.

    “A man must make his own arrows”

    ***

    “Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.”

    Dream Hampton

    JUST THIS
    by W.S. Merwin

    Just this. Just this, this room where we are.
    Pay attention to that.

    Pay attention to who’s there.
    Pay attention to what isn’t known there.
    Pay attention to what is known there.
    Pay attention to what everyone is thinking or feeling; what you’re doing there.

    Pay attention. Pay attention.
