so dawn goes down to day (robert frost)

"I dealt with people all my life, and now I’m burnt out. I just like to be alone. It’s more comfortable."
Something we were withholding made us weak, until we found out that it was ourselves we were withholding from our land of living, and forthwith found salvation in surrender. - On this day in 1961, an 86-year-old Robert Frost approached a podium in Washington, D.C. to read one of his poems. It was Inauguration Day, and John F. Kennedy had invited him to be there. Frost had written something specifically for the occasion, but he was an old man with weak eyes and couldn’t read it, so he recited one of his others — The Gift Outright — from memory. This is a piece of it. For some reason, I think it is a lovely fit with this, one of my favorite poems from one of my favorite writers. It’s beauty, though, is that it condenses into four lovely lines the commitment not to withhold anything anymore, to face your own soul, and to discover the beauty that lies beneath stripped bark.

Warsaw Old Town street (by Darek Drapala)
We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive. - Thich Nhat Hanh (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
