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
