Though true grace beneath
covers the underbelly

A healthy heartbeat
micro drums echo macro
universe at play
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”
― William Blake


“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”
― William Blake, Songs of Innocence and of Experience

To busy surfing the net
To get caught in it.

To get caught in it,
Is to let the self go to,
Too much a degree.
