"...because we don't change because we want to, do we? We change because we have to. Because there's enough pain."

Feral Ghazal

Lichen thrives in adverse environments, mountaintops and ice.
A feral animal is one that has escaped domestication.
St. Augustine's definition of God was a being whose center is everywhere, borders nowhere.
The process by which any technology disembodies us is called angelization.
In a basement in California, a woman sleeps cradling a phone.
The heightening of one sense necessitates diminution of the others.
All change begins with disruption.
The process of one animal taming another is both violent and loving.
And you, Caitlin, what will it take to hold you still,
pockets filled with sea-swept stones.

Drove out to the end of the spiral peninsula this week to find a moment...this sun disappeared with the final note of Brahms Violin Concerto No. 1...
