a poetic life


“Quiet people, those working on the ‘real work’, quite literally turn down the volume of noise in their lives. As Gary Snyder says, the real work is what we really do. And what our lives are. And if we can live the work we have to do, knowing that we are real, and that the world is real, then it becomes right.  And that’s the real work: to make the world as real as it is and to find ourselves as real as we are within it.”
