Mirth and Melodious Poetry


Photo by Jeremiah Hull
I have become such a fixture in front of the library a photographer decided to use me in one of his shoots.

The other day I had the pleasure to work with Jeremiah Hull and Lindsey. I can say that the warm, congenial spirit of Lindsey that is captured in the photos is without question a combination of the
sincerity of her brilliant character and the exceptional artistry of the photographer.

Check out Jeremiah's website for some truly beautiful photography. http://www.jeremiahhull.net/

Happy National Poetry Month, Time to Fill the Air with Music!


On First Looking into John Rawls’ A Theory of Justice

Reading John Rawls is like watching Spinoza
work.  The propositional statements opening
every paragraph distinctly outline a frame.
Then the ensuing declarations reveal the delicate
curve of the lens.   One would expect a coarseness
in the grind of gritty words, a gnashing of gears
in the machinery of technicalities, but the dust
clears with the soft breath of insightful inspiration
revealing a clarity in vision, not simply of the text,
but of the world. 
                                  I imagine Keats “First Looking,”
climbing steep slopes of verdant folios from within
Baruch’s humble chamber, diligently polishing
the mind into a never-ending understanding
resolving the focus of everyone’s spectacular life.
