Thirst (August 2010)
Patrick Carrington - Author

“Searching for Things to Worship”

to stick up times on the corkboard, some I put

back in the desk. Once a tack stuck

straight through the ball of my foot as I ran straight

on it, the ball of the foo...(Read More)

Reflections on Myth, Symbol, and Story
P. L. Travers - Author
David Appelbaum - Foreword by

“The Sphinx, the Pyramids, the stone temples are, all of them, ultimately, as flimsy as London Bridge; our cities but tents set up in the cosmos. We pass. But what the bee knows, the wisdom that sustains our passing life—however much we deny or ignore it—that for ever remains.” —P. L. Travers
