be still my heart

tuckd in with holiday greetings in my snail mail was a postcard from Flood Editions announcing publication of the Thomas Meyer translation of Daode Jing.

the image of the translator is from a photo by Reuben Cox which is part of his River series. in it Tom is naked in a river shampooing his hair. it's a provocative pose. of course I immediately went to Cox's website to see if there is more of the photo & there is.

i've read a couple of times meyer's essay in the newest _first intensity_ 'on being neglected' which is a terrific piece on the art of living / reading / writing. he has more than a few pitch-perfect sentences, i can't recommend it enough.
