02.13.2012 ~ unplugged and quiet

the blank page of morning ~ copyright dawn chandler 2012

I've been keeping to myself lately....


'reflecting on poet Kazim Ali's insight:  

If you talk all the time about something, you stop knowing anything about it.


How true. 



And so, 
I've been...
talking/sharing [online] less.

And 


painting

drawing

writing

reading

walking

observing

contemplating

living 

more. 



Reflecting, too, on this just-right poem by David Budbill ~

Winter is the best time 
to find out who you are. 

Quiet, contemplation time, 
away from the rushing world, 

cold time, dark time, holed-up 
pulled-in time and space 

to see that inner landscape, 
that place hidden and within
