I hate when I make a dumb mistake. (Well, don't we all?)  This is a link to an interview I did when I was in Ann Arbor three weeks ago, and it's actually a fun interview because she went out of her way to ask not-the-usual questions.  But just for the record: I referred to a poem quoted in the book A Summer to Die as being by Housman; and it's not..it's by Gerard Manley Hopkins. And I KNEW that, which is why I am irritated with myself.

A.E. Housman:


Gerard Manley Hopkins:


They don't even look alike!

Dear Lois,

Being home (especially with family and dogs) can be such a comfort in itself. Best wishes to you, Martin, and the rest of your family during this hard time.

Hospitals are a suspension of reality where one has very little control. Home is the place you need to be to feel the reality and appreciate the home that you have made together. Thinking of you.

Betty Birney Monday, 29 November 1999

Lois, you and your husband are in my thoughts.

Heaven. Now there's a thought. Nothing has ever been able, ultimately, to convince me we live anywhere else. And that heaven, more a verb than a noun, more a condition than a place, is all about leading with the heart in whatever broken or ragged state it's in, stumbling forward in faith until, from time to time, we miraculously find our way. Our way to forgiveness, our way to letting go, our way to understanding, compassion and peace.
It is laughter, I think, that bubbles up at last and says, "Ho, I think we are there." And that 'there' is always here.
--Alice Walker

Clay Monday, 29 November 1999

You have been in my thoughts and will continue to be, we will all make the journey home.
Thank you for your blog. my students are finished with reading The Giver, but they are still thinking of the themes and ideas. I continue to work it in to the daily lesson - some connection to folklore (our current unit) or a life lesson... learning never ends.

Jessika Monday, 29 November 1999

Home is indeed where the heart is. You are so open to share this with us, and I thank you for reminding me about all that is truly important in life. My thoughts are with you and yours.

Jennifer Fischer Monday, 29 November 1999

My thoughts are with you and your family, Lois. Praying for you and Martin in this difficult time.

Instead of trying moncler outlet so hard to get out of the shadow,Scarpe running da donna the dark, which I think actually reinforces the shadow and its reality, just do your practices.adidas shoes sale See, if somebody says, “I’m having these terrible thoughts,Cheap Ugg Outlet On Sale and I don’t know why, will you help me understand why?”new balance sale I’d tell them that I’d rather sit with them and a&f clothing help them to follow their breath.christian louboutin pas cher The breath has no content to it at all.Giacca da uomo K-way It’s just breath.scarpe nike scontate It’s better to strengthen chaussures Adidas pour hommes their centering,des ugg pas cher the quieting, the presence, than to keep strengthening the problem,Nike shoes sale which keeps being reinforced when you work on it directly.nike pas cher femme It’s a very delicate situation. I don’t want to undercut times when it’s really appropriate to work on thoughts as content, but for the most part,pandora canada outlet the focusing on the content of thoughts is, to me, a last strategy.

It is a much better new balance femme 574 strategy to focus on ed hardy france the mechanics of thought,UGG Women's Boots rather than the content of thought. Do you hear that distinction?

Now I can go canada goose italia to a therapist, and they can say nike free run saldi "Let's talk about your childhood and where did it all come from…" That’s dealing with the content of the thoughts.nike vapormax 2017 Or, instead, I could choose to just see them as thoughts, not focusing on the content so much, looking for answers.Nike Air Jordan pas cher They’re just thoughts! Put them in the category of thoughts, not what they’re about, they’re just thoughts,Giacche da donna Moncler and it’s my major game louboutin pas cher basket in meditation to extricate awareness from pandora rings sale identification with thought or with clinging to it.Nike Free In order to do that you go into your meditation practice, adidas zx 750 which in some cases might be taking one thought, like following the breath.

What will then come up is,Piumini moncler donna “But what am I gonna do about this relationship?” Thought appears,nike air max 2017 uomo and I hear the teacher say, cheap nike air force 1 “Return to your breath.” Go back to breathing in,chaussures de basket-ball Nike breathing out Scarpe Nike Roshe one, then another one comes and says,UGG Kids on Sale “God my life is a mess!” Now at that point, you can leave, call a therapist,ugg homme pas cher and say, "Let’s deal with why my life is a mess,"new balance 574 femme or you say,new balance 996 femme "Ok, go back to the breath.nike free 5.0 womens Sure your life is a mess.adidas yeezy low Go back to the breath."

It’s just rising-falling,Nike Sandals rising-falling,Scarpe Nike Air Max 90 and now, in other words,nike free 5.0 uomo you can use the meditative practice to extricate moncler uomo outlet online yourself from identification with thoughts,nike air jordan for sale whatever they are, shadowy or not.Running Shoes de Nike There are some louboutin pas cher homme thoughts that you won’t pandora jewelry stock get rid of that way,Gilet da uomo Moncler because they’re sort of in adidas boost shoes a nest or web of stuff.Nike Air Jordan pas cher Then, you’ll approach sandale plate steve madden them in terms of content,ugg bottes 2017 but my strategy is to go for the mechanics first,UGG Womens Gloves and then go to the content later on,moncler uomo 2017 when it’s really ripe for the picking.
