certainty and doubt

claws or nails?

 

My goal isn’t to take away your confusion. Confusion is a fertile field
in which everything is possible. If you think you “know,” you’ve just
calcified again. Ram Dass

 

Is there something exciting out on the raggedy edges called Perhaps?
What sorts of certainties stifle curiosity? What sorts of sureness make
life livable?

 

I have a lot of edges called Perhaps
and almost nothing you can call
Certainty.
Mary Oliver in “Angels,” Blue Horses

 

Hope keeps me from calcifying

Angels teach me “perhaps’

Curiosity  makes imagination grow

and

the wild horses keep running!
