Favorite Quotes

Instead of writing a blog, I'm going to post a favorite quotation now and then, from my collection! Here's one I just came across in a novel by Pat O'Shea called "The Hounds of the Morrigan" It pretty much sums up what I'm trying to do in my latest book about proportion as a rhythmic marker in free-verse poetry:

"Don't look for it -- find it.

Don't search for it -- come to it.

This is the best and the oldest way, for maps

can be read by many eyes and maps can't show

the crooked path of sensing."
