    You do not have to be good.
    You do not have to walk on your knees
    for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
    You only have to let the soft animal of your body
    love what it loves.

    Shakedown trip: 3 nights (30 miles) on the Appalachian Trail. A+ long weekend. Delayed Amtrak back into the District this afternoon. Wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Love you,

"Earlier this month, Nepal’s government announced that it would require every climber returning from the summit of Mount Everest to bring back at least 18 pounds of garbage, the first concerted effort to eliminate the estimated 50 tons of trash that has been left on the mountain by climbers over the past six decades.

    Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames.

    Every few years I revisit this; it’s a good one.

    The Art of Disappearing, by Naomi Shihab Nye

    When they say Don’t I know you?
    say no.

    When they invite you to the party
    remember what parties are like
    before answering.
    Someone telling you in a loud voice
    they once wrote a poem.
    Greasy sausage balls on a paper plate.
    Then reply.

    If they say We should get together
    say why?

    It’s not that you don’t love them anymore.
    You’re trying to remember something
    too important to forget.
    Trees. The monastery bell at twilight.
    Tell them you have a new project.
    It will never be finished.

    When someone recognizes you in a grocery store
    nod briefly and become a cabbage.
    When someone you haven’t seen in ten years
    appears at the door,
    don’t start singing him all your new songs.
    You will never catch up.

    Walk around feeling like a leaf.
    Know you could tumble any second.
    Then decide what to do with your time.

    Tree House, Shel Silverstein

    A tree house, a free house,
    A secret you and me house,
    A high up in the leafy branches
    Cozy as can be house.

    A street house, a neat house,
    Be sure to wipe your feet house
    Is not my kind of house at all—
    Let’s go live in a tree house.
