reluctance


Out through the fields and the woods
   And over the walls I have wended;
I have climbed the hills of view
   And looked at the world, and descended;
I have come by the highway home,
   And lo, it is ended.

The leaves are all dead on the ground,
   Save those that the oak is keeping
To ravel them one by one
   And let them go scraping and creeping
Out over the crusted snow,
   When others are sleeping.

And the dead leaves lie huddled and still,
   No longer blown hither and thither;
The last lone aster is gone;
   The flowers of the witch hazel wither;
The heart is still aching to seek,
   But the feet question 'Whither?'

Ah, when to the heart of man
   Was it ever less than a treason
To go with the drift of things,
   To yield with a grace to reason,
And bow and accept the end
   Of a love or a season?

-Robert Frost, 1913-

on life (7)


Life In A River

In the rapid stream of life I prefer the eddies. Hanging around in circles, enjoying the view, listening to churchbells, meanwhile attracted to the centre, then going down. Looks like drowning, but I'm surfacing elsewhere. On to the nex eddy. It's an endless stream. What can you do? That's life.

on life (6)


life is a series of

coincidences  inconsistensies
inconsequences  insights
perceptions  impressions
bewilderments  enchantments
acknowledgements  attentions
all given and taken

life is anagrammatically lief

vlielandse luchten (2)


things I see while standing at the sink


schitterend ochtendlicht,
de duinen zo groen
en de regenwolkenlucht zo blauw
een buizerd die langs vliegt,
deze ochtend heeft hij een oranje buik

characteristics of life

A fifth of animals without backbones could be at risk of extinction, say scientists.
-BBC Nature News
Ask me if I speak for the snail and I will tell you
I speak for the snail.
                          speak of underneathedness
and the welcome of mosses,
                                        of life that springs up,
little lives that pull back and wait for a moment.

I speak for the damselfly, water skeet, mollusk,
the caterpillar, the beetle, the spider, the ant.
                                                        I speak
from the time before spinelessness was frowned upon.

Ask me if I speak for the moon jelly. I will tell you
                        one thing today and another tomorrow
        and I will be as consistent as anything alive
on this earth.

              I move as the currents move, with the breezes.
What part of your nature drives you? You, in 
   your cubicle
ought to understand me. I filter and filter and filter 
   all day.

Ask me if I speak for the nautilus and I will be silent
as the nautilus shell on a shelf. I can be beautiful
and useless if that's all you know to ask of me.

Ask me what I know of longing and I will speak of 
   distances
        between meadows of night-blooming flowers.
                                                        I will speak
                        the impossible hope of the firefly.

                                                You with the candle
burning and only one chair at your table must 
   understand
        such wordless desire.

                         To say it is mindless is missing the point.

bivak reboulaz, 2585 m

dat was donderdagochtend, de bron op de voorgrond doet t niet, want bevroren.... zeer luxe bivak met houtkachel die vooral kleine houtjes wilde...gelukkig kan Margo goed hakken....
Nu dus weer terug in de volgende vallei (Oyace), op n terrasje met n biertje...het leven is goed. De bivak van gisteren (Clermont, 2692 m) had nog zoveel voorraad van de Tor des Geants over, dat we pasta met uien/oregano/tomatensaus konden koken, inclusief bergen parmasaanse kaas en een rode wijn erbij, super. Goed geslapen, prachtige sterrenhemel.
Ciao!

einde rustdag....

we denken, we eten ff snel wat op de camping....
6 antipasti (oa kaas, heerlijke rauwe ham, vitello tonato, gegrilde paprika), huisgemaakte ravioli (voor de tiramisu echt geen plaats meer), een espresso met deze bergkruidenlikeur (juniper?) later weten we weer dat even niet bestaat in Italiƫ....

refuggio coda, 2224 m


Om 16.30 gearriveerd, nu 2 bier verder....wij waren wel onder de indruk van onszelf, bijna 1600 m stijgen met 16 kg op de rug, de eerste dag. En de refuggio zou dicht zijn, maar die is dus open, vanwege de Tor de Geants...een loop van Courmayeur naar Courmayeur, de alta via 2 door gran paradiso en dan dus de alta via 1...330 km, je mag er 150 uur over doen. Zondag begonnen. Deze refuggio is precies op de helft. En wij hebben hier de eerste binnen zien komen! Hij zag er wat moe uit, maar loopt nog ff door na een kopje soep....Wij gaan zo douchen en aan de polenta (not our favorite).

things I see while swimming


in de zeemist is zelfs de pier mooi
een meeuw onderzoekt mijn tas
(daar moet toch iets eetbaars inzitten)
vijf zilveren visjes vieren de morgen
en springen voor mijn neus uit het water
