I depart as air, I shake my white locks at the runaway sun,
[ . . . ]

I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love,
If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.

You will hardly know who I am or what I mean,
But I shall be good health to you nevertheless,
[ . . . ]

Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged,
Missing me one place search another,
I stop somewhere waiting for you.

At the core of A Burglar's Guide to the City is an unexpected and thrilling insight: how any building transforms when seen through the eyes of someone hoping to break into it.

A word nerd's dream; a "truth is stranger than fiction" story: Including both serious historical research and journalistic dramatic intrigue, this is a history of the dictionary, but it is also a glimpse into some of the strangest corners of the social world. his glimpse is through the lives of two central figures: a self-educated scholar, and a delusional murderer.

Everything is a spiritual language, noble thinker, but simply on a higher / lower frequency of connection.
This discourse that we share is but one of many.
If there is a God, and a spiritual language that connects us to God, then by definition it's the only language of purpose, simply expressed in different ways. Much of the human world is an example.
Settle into a patient understanding of younger men & take a forgiving breath. https://v.gd/gFEuC4
