    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It seems only yesterday I used to believe
there was nothing under my skin but light.

I skin my knees. I bleed.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“But tomorrow, dawn will come the way I picture her,
barefoot and disheveled, standing outside my window
in one of the fragile cotton dresses of the poor.
She will look in at me with her thin arms extended,
offering a handful of birdsong and a small cup of light.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The sunlight flashes off your windshield,
and when I look up into the small, posted mirror,
I watch you diminish--my echo, my twin--
and vanish around a curve in this whip
of a road we can't help traveling together.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“In unsettled times like these, when world cultures, countries and religions are facing off in violent confrontations, we could benefit from the reminder that storytelling is common to all civilizations. Whether in the form of a sprawling epic or a pointed ballad, the story is our most ancient method of making sense out of experience and of preserving the past.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“In a while, one of us will go up to bed
and the other one will follow.
Then we will slip below the surface of the night
into miles of water, drifting down and down
to the dark, soundless bottom
until the weight of dreams pulls us lower still.”
