Rave On

Treasures from my parents’ yard sale. That little green thingy at the bottom of the chest was once used to warm up baby bottles.

Swampboy daughter #2 graduation from night-time high school 1 year early. Love this picture of her (2nd from left) smiling and feeling good.

Advertisement from the Metuchen, NJ train station. By the way, Medeski Martin & Wood in Prospect Park was a stellar night. Another live music concert is in my future with The Bad Plus playing this Tuesday as part of the JVC Jazz Fest. Oh freakin’ boy, I can’t wait!!

I’ll leave you with this poem from Mary Oliver’s recent book. I can’t get it out of my mind.

A Pretty Song

From the complications of loving you

I think there is no end or return

No answer, no coming out of it.

Which is the only way to love, isn’t it?

This is a playground, this is

earth, our heaven, for awhile.

Therefore I have given precedence

to all my sudden, sullen, dark moods

that hold you in the center of my world.

And I say to my body: grow thinner still.

And I say to my fingers, type me a pretty song.

And I say to my heart: rave on.


A Pretty Song by Mary Oliver in Thirst (Boston: Beacon Press, 2006).

And rave on, George Carlin! For a giggle if you are working this Monday morning, look here at his hilarious life timeline. Shit fuck cocksucker, et al.
