Some think the

is made of bodies some think forces I
think a man knows nothing but his foot when
he burns it in the hot fire

— Anne Carson, from ‘Antigonick’ (her translation of Sophokles) (format approximate, since the work is handwritten). (via itgivesitthew)

Shoshin is a concept in Zen Buddhism meaning “beginner’s mind”. It refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions when studying a subject, even when studying at an advanced level, just as a beginner in that subject would.

(via minimist)

there is a house near a forehead of water
on a bucket of earth
dropped down from the sky when
no one avoided sun.

But its even more than that.

Summer is too good to us.
