Time for the Soul to Catch up!



I didn't come up with that phrase. It comes from a poem by Erica Jong, featured at
Von's blog at the Poet Post link below. Do visit.

A good life: Poet post


When you sit down on a rock and admire this view, you'll understand.

I remember Erica Jong's "Fear of Flying." I guess I never realized she was a poet, too.

I very much like all you've posted here. I clicked on the photos and read. Are these scenes from a WIP? They excellent.

I too remember Fear of Flying. And I did read Erica Jong's poems, many decades ago. Good poems.

You post the prettiest pictures. Off to visit your friend.

Oh yes, what a view! Thank you! :-)

I discovered Erica Jong's poetry after reading "Fear of flying" - very interesting woman.

Wonderful post! Of the poets pictured, I love Erica Jong (her book of poetry, "Becoming Light" is a favorite of mine) and Anne Waldman (I love her book, "Fast Speaking Woman"). I think time after age 50 is catching up time. (But I've come to the conclusion that I'll never have time to read all the books I want to read.) I'm praying that there's an afterlife that includes a very big library. LOL! Blessings!

The trick for me would be to sit still long enough for the soul to catch up.

So lovely. I have places like that where the light is more stunning and the air fresher and I am restored.

A rock, a log, a park bench, a snowbank .... it's all good.

Jo said...

Oh, yes.... I have a spot like that. Good for the soul. :-)

Just as there has been research published this week, that spending time in 'green' space is worth so much, this is a very fitting idyll you have presented us with - Many thanks, and it is wonderful to re-connect, my sweet x
