I know that I recently stated my intention to publish on the blog more material from the upcoming book I am compiling, IVRI: The Essence of Hebrew Spirituality; 21st Century Perspectives on an Ancient Tradition. After I published the first one, I had some second thoughts. I am now asking for some feedback from readers of the blog in terms of a Vote either that you would like to see more of this content published on the blog before it comes out in the book, or that you would prefer to remain in suspense and wait until the book comes out, hopefully this Spring. I am looking to try to get a finger on the pulse of the readers of this blog and a little bit of feedback/interaction, so please respond one way or another. Your responses can be anonymous, but I ask on the honor system that you only vote once. I will not publish any more material from the book on the blog unless I get a minimum of 10 requests and if the votes to not publish do not outnumber the votes to publish. Thanks for your participation.
Quote of the Week 37 - Wind, Water, Stone
Wind, Water, Stone
BY OCTAVIO PAZ
Water hollows stone,
wind scatters water,
stone stops the wind.
Water, wind, stone.
Wind carves stone,
stone's a cup of water,
water escapes and is wind.
Stone, wind, water.
Wind sings in its whirling,
water murmurs going by,
unmoving stone keeps still.
Wind, water, stone.
Each is another and no other:
crossing and vanishing
through their empty names:
water, stone, wind.
