FULL MOON FEVER

"O swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon
That monthly changes in her circled orb,
Lest that thy love prove likewise variable."

"Romeo and Juliet"

"See her how she flies
Golden sails across the sky
Close enough to touch
But careful if you try....
Though she looks as warm as gold
The moon's a harsh mistress
It's hard to love her well
She's hard to call your own."

~Jimmy Webb.

'If desire causes suffering it may be
because we do not desire wisely, or that we are inexpert
at obtaining what we desire. Instead of hiding our heads
in a prayer cloth and building walls against temptation,
why not get better at fulfilling desire? 

Salvation is for the feeble, that's what I think.

I don't want salvation I want life, all of life ..........I will
have tasted the banquet that they have before me on
this rich, round planet, rather than recoiling from it
like a toothless bunny. I cannot believe that the most
delicious things were placed here merely to test us
to capture the grand prize: the safety of the void. To
fashion of life such a petty game is unworthy of both
men and gods."

~Tom Robbins

Passion, from Belteshazzar
