Lost: One Small Brain

One small brain has gone missing in an extended flash of bright light around 11:30 pm on Wednesday, July 27.  Last seen eating Mint Milano cookies in copious quantities in a dimly lit room.

Distinguishing characteristics:  Squishy and sensitive.  High spikes of creativity are noticeable on occasion.  A pleasant pink color, but will assume disguises when motivated.

Be on the lookout for it wandering around unfamiliar neighborhoods with an empty water glass, one shoe, and an iPod headset with no iPod attached. May be in the vicinity of an airport.

If found, please return to this blog.  No reward offered, as it is priceless.

Today’s guest poet – Rainer Maria Rilke (who is fast becoming one of my favorite poets)

Interior Portrait

You don’t survive in me
because of memories;
nor are you mine because
of a lovely longing’s strength.

What does make you present
is the ardent detour
that a slow tenderness
traces in my blood.

I do not need
to see you appear;
being born sufficed for me
to lose you a little less.

Quote of the day: “Have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.”  —  Rainer Maria Rilke
