  • Ray Bradbury once said we should leave something behind when we die, something we’ve touched so our souls have a place to go. And when others look at that object or maybe a garden we planted or something else we’ve built, our presence can still be felt. The Museum of Your Parents website says that when our parents are gone, it can still be important to have their things: a plate, a chair, a sweater, an old phone....something of them lives on in this stuff.

On Now

Dave Pollard wrote thought-provokingly of the "Now Time”, a multidimensional recursive eternal present familiar to aboriginal cultures the world over, and recalling Friedrich Nietzche's desire to be a "yes-sayer" to each moment.

This recalls Camus' celebration of Sisyphus starting afresh each day and more recently, Eckhart Tolle's "power of now".

You wander from room to room hunting for the diamond necklace that is already around your neck - Jalal-Uddin Rumi

What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare? - WH Davies

Quote 2733

The modern hero, the modern individual who dares to heed the call and seek the mansion of that presence with whom it is our whole destiny to be atoned, cannot - indeed must not - wait for his community to cast off its slough of pride, fear, and rationalized avarice and sanctified misunderstanding. 'Live', Nietzsche says, 'as though the day was here.' It is not society that is to guide and save the hero, but precisely the reverse. And so every one of us shares the supreme ordeal - carries the cross of the redeemer - not in the bright moments of his tribe's great victories but in the silences of his personal despair - Joseph Campbell, in The Hero with a Thousand Faces.
