#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

If the imagination intoxicates the poet, it is not inactive in other men. The metamorphosis excites in the beholder an emotion of joy. . . We seem to be touched by a wand, which makes us dance and run about happily, like children. We are like persons who come out of a cave or cellar into the open air.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson http://www.emersoncentral.com/poet.htm

I am not at peace with the election of a new president. My mind and my heart and my spirit counted on an opposite outcome. The buzz of the news and the neighborhood chatter - bothers my ears.  It's confusing and chaotic with so many trusted ideas turned upside down. What I imagined as probable was wrong. An impossibility has materialized - shocking. When I am in the woods, I trust my imagination will awaken to new possibilities.

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
— e. e. cummings
