In the Urgency of Now
Daily Draw December 18th, 2011
One day last week was my parent’s wedding anniversary—it would have been their 69th had my Mom lived. And today I am listening to the Smashing Pumpkins song 1979.
We were sure we’d never see an end to it all
And I don’t even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
Time is just rolling along.

I put a dozen library books on hold or inter-library loan. I also filled out four forms to recommend books to the library to buy. They were about making art journals and drawing every day; they have nothing like that in the whole system.
When all else fails we have books and art to pull us up. The Root of the Powers of the Earth.
The street heats the urgency of now
