Move slowly and take a breath
feel the deepest ocean’s sound
Dip into the wild world
Taste the hardest that absorbs you
Path forwardly and bravely
The world will smile in eyes
and there you are in the middle of nature’s scent that fills body and soul..
Welding the vertebraeMy beast, my age, who will try to look you in the eye, and weld the vertebrae of century to century? (Osip Mendelstam, 'The Age', ll. 1-4)
