      This is a gathering of Lovers.

      In this gathering
      there is no high, no low,
      no smart, no ignorant,
      no special assembly,
      no grand discourse,
      no proper schooling required.

      There is no master, no disciple.

      This gathering is more like
      a drunken party,
      full of tricksters, fools,
      mad men and mad women.

      This is a gathering
      of Lovers.

      "Worry not from a clear heart,
      Like the polished glass of innocence.
      The innocent mirror contains all, unashamed.
      For this clarity, see yourself shamelessly.
      This is truth.
      As a glass shines bright with polish,
      So the heart's mirror will shine,
      the deeper you look.
      Between the glass and the heart
      there are only secrets."

      For Susan - Artist of Being, Alive

       
      I know you think about how great it would be to have a
      fully functioning body and the gardening and art you
      could do.......it must be a frustration at times.

      I saw this though, and immediately thought of you. I
      want to share it:

      "And yet, I know artists whose medium is Life itself
      and who express the inexpressible without brush,
      pencil, chisel or guitar. They neither paint or dance.
      Their medium is Being. Whatever their hand touched has
      increased Life. They See and don't have to draw. They
      are the artists of being alive."

      ...thought I would end with a quote from a very different
      source that really grabbed me the first time I read it, and has always
      stood out in my mind afterwards. This quote is from Kurt Vonnegut's
      "The Sirens of Titan". It is a short conversation between Salo and
      Constant near the end of the book.

      You finally fell in love, I see," said Salo.

      "Only an Earthling year ago," said Constant. "It took us that long to
      realize that a purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it,
      is to love whoever is around to be loved."

      Dearest Friends,
       
       
      Like stepping stones glowing brightly, shining wisdom-white in the clear moonlight illuminating them from within, I move slowly, in awe, and awarely over these god-stone silences vibrating as spiritual stepping-sounds abounding within Bob's beautiful photographic and literary artwork.  Here are some sterling-whirling word-and-image pixel-dancers that have enhanced and enlivened my happy moments of reflecting upon each one I've viewed ... and ultimately been imbued with ~ From Beautiful Bob:
       
       
      Some Kiss We Want

      There is some kiss we want with
      our whole lives, the touch of

      spirit on the body. Seawater
      begs the pearl to break its shell.

      And the lily, how passionately
      it needs some wild darling! At

      night, I open the window and ask
      the moon to come and press its

      face against mine. Breathe into
      me. Close the language- door and

      open the love window. The moon
      won't use the door, only the window.

      "When you find yourself with the Beloved, embracing for
      one breath,
      In that moment you will find your true destiny."

      "With the Beloved's water of life, no illness remains
      In the Beloved's rose garden of union, no thorn remains.
      They say there is a window from one heart to another
      How can there be a window where no wall remains?"

      ~ Rumi

      "When the sweet glance of my true love caught my eyes,
      Like alchemy, it transformed my copper-like soul.
      I searched for Him with a thousand hands,
      He stretched out His arms and clutched my feet."

      ~ Rumi

      "The minute I heard my first love story,
      I started looking for you, not knowing
      how blind that was.

      Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,
      they're in each other all along."

      ~ Rumi
