“Golden” | Anthony Satori
“There was something undifferentiated and yet complete, which existed before Heaven and Earth. Soundless and formless, it depends on nothing and does not change. It may be considered the mother of the universe. I do not know its name; I call it Tao.”
— Lao Tzu
This week was the start of the Lunar New Year. Kung xi fa cai, everyone! (A wish for happiness and prosperity.) Cheers!
“Exuberance” | Anthony Satori
Today I sang, I saw beauty, I spoke poetry, I felt joy.
I held wonder and sunlight in my open hands, until they overflowed.
And then I set out in search of you, to share the treasures I’d found.
“California Rain” | Anthony Satori
“Here comes the rain again, falling on my head like a memory.”
— The Eurythmics
“Translation of the Dream” | Anthony Satori
“If the dream is a translation of waking life, waking life is also a translation of the dream.”
— Rene Magritte
“Pink and Yellow Rose” | Anthony Satori
“Infinitely at ease
despite so many risks,
with no variation
of her usual routine,
the blooming rose is the omen
of her immeasurable endurance.
Do we know how she survives?
No doubt one of her days
is all the earth and all
of our infinity.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke
“Palm Tree, Tractor, Wildfire” | Anthony Satori
“Do not go gentle into that good night; rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
— Dylan Thomas
“The Seagull” | Anthony Satori
Perhaps the seagull
was once a fish
who dreamed of the sky
that Nature eventually decided
to give her wings.
