I will not find you on the street
nor will the phone ring, and each moment will not
let me be in peace.
it is not enough that there are many deaths
and that this is not the first;
it is not enough that I may live many more days,
even perhaps, more years.
it is not…

Look At This Awesome Dog of the Day: Harper, an 11-week-old pit bull born with a debilitating disorder commonly known as “swimmer puppy disorder,” was found in a trash bag and brought to a shelter to be euthanized.
Dogs with pectus excavatum can’t walk and aren’t expected to survive, but Harper was lucky enough to find shelter regular Erica Daniel, who took the puppy home and, with a little TLC, slowly helped Harper learn to stand on her own four paws.
Daniel admits falling in love with Harper was not what she had in mind — “I’d planned on taking her home that night,” she told NBC’s Today, “letting her sleep in bed with us, and having her humanely euthanized in the morning” — but felt she couldn’t just give up, especially after seeing Harper’s determination to walk around on her own.
“The whole world was against her, but she’s such a fighter,” says Daniel. “She’s a blessing. She’s awesome.”

Veterinarian Livia Pereira kisses paralyzed lion Ariel who she is caring for in her home in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Wednesday July 13, 2011. An Internet and Facebook campaign has been launched in Brazil to obtain funds needed to treat the lion that has been paralyzed for the past year. The campaign was launched by Raquel Borges, the owner of Ariel, a three-year-old, 310 pound (140 kilogram) lion that has been unable to use his four legs due to a degenerative disease affecting his medulla. Borges runs a a shelter that cares for sick or abandoned animals. Borges and Pereira say that the money needed to pay for Ariel’s treatment come from donations from people who belong to the Facebook page created for the lion.
In London, the weather would affect me negatively. I react strongly to light. If it is cloudy and raining, there are clouds and rain in my soul.
more than watching you take off your clothes
before bed. Eyes on the floor, wall, or window
as if some swath of dust helps you remember
its the blouse Ruth left last March,
the underwear you wore to graduation,
the bra you’ll go to India in. It gets real
halfway between my bellybutton & spine,
and sometimes I lie there pretending to read,
book hardly below my eyes, your weight
balanced on one leg — a live oak — torso,
shoulder, and neck bent as your arm
reaches, your knee rises, and your thumb
peels the ripe, white fruit of your foot
out of the sock. Then, in forty watt dark,
I love your cold skin, as a wick
takes flame from a match, and gives it
time, sweet time, to burn and shine.

“You know, I feel real good about 5-0. The — obviously, I’ve gotten a little grayer since I took this job but otherwise, I feel pretty good. And Michelle, you know, says that, you know, she — she — she still thinks I’m, I’m cute, you know. And I guess that’s — that’s all that matters, isn’t it?” — Barack Obama
Don’t lament so much about how your career is going to turn out. You don’t have a career. You have a life. Do the work. Keep the faith. Be true blue. You are a writer because you write. Keep writing and quit your bitching. Your book has a birthday. You don’t know what it is yet.
You cannot convince people to love you. This is an absolute rule. No one will ever give you love because you want him or her to give it. Real love moves freely in both directions. Don’t waste your time on anything else.
