The river that runs in the valley makes the valley that holds it. This is the doorway; the valley of the river. – What wears away the hard stone, the high mountain? The wind. The dust on the wind.

a happy birthday this evening, I sat by an open window and read till the light was gone and the book was no more than a part of the darkness.

I have a thing for vegan desserts. I’m not a vegan, but every January [A] and I partake in a vegan diet to cleanse our systems and add more fruits and vegetables into our bodies.
