silence to my compass

1. I figured out how to change the g-mail account associated with this blog! No more worries about people being able to find it by searching my name! Now I have my very own address for all "Things I Like" related concerns.


3. Planned Parenthood has a tumblr and thanks to this post I remembered to get my 3rd shot. Also, I would like to restate how much I like Planned Parenthood and their work. They provide ALL KINDS of services, and not just for women either.

Something I've Not Done

Something I’ve not done
is following me
I haven’t done it again and again
so it has many footsteps
like a drumstick that’s grown old and never been used

In late afternoon I hear it come closer
at times it climbs out of a sea
onto my shoulders
and I shrug it off
losing one more chance

Every morning
it’s drunk up part of my breath for the day
and knows which way
I’m going
and already it’s not done there
But once more I say I’ll lay hands on it
and add its footsteps to my heart
and its story to my regrets
and its silence to my compass 
- W.H. Merwin
