Litany, by Billy Collins

18 Mar

Samuel Chelpka recites poems flawlessly & he’s only 3 years old.

You are the bread and the knife,
the crystal goblet and the wine.
You are the dew on the morning grass
and the burning wheel of the sun.
You are the white apron of the baker,
and the marsh birds suddenly in flight.

However, you are not the wind in the orchard,
the plums on the counter,
or the house of cards.
And you are certainly not the pine-scented air.
There is just no way that you are the pine-scented air.

It is possible that you are the fish under the bridge,
maybe even the pigeon on the general’s head,
but you are not even close
to being the field of cornflowers at dusk.

And a quick look in the mirror will show
that you are neither the boots in the corner
nor the boat asleep in its boathouse.

It might interest you to know,
speaking of the plentiful imagery of the world,
that I am the sound of rain on the roof.

I also happen to be the shooting star,
the evening paper blowing down an alley
and the basket of chestnuts on the kitchen table.

I am also the moon in the trees
and the blind woman’s tea cup.
But don’t worry, I’m not the bread and the knife.
You are still the bread and the knife.
You will always be the bread and the knife,
not to mention the crystal goblet and–somehow–the wine.

God Hates Figs

18 Mar

My new favourite show is Parks and Recreation. I’d say about every 5 minutes I slap my knee laughing. Comic Genius! In my opinion the best characters by far are Ron Swanson and Andy Dwyer for obvious reasons – they both rock facial hair like champs and are so gosh darn funny. Ahem, even a website dedicated to cats that look just like Ron Swanson:

If you haven’t checked the show out yet, here are a few quotes to set the scene:

Ron Swanson

  • When I’m done eating a Mulligan’s meal, for weeks afterwards, there are flecks of meat in my mustache. And I refuse to clean it because every now and then a piece of meat will fall into my mouth.
  • I am an official member of a task force dedicated to slashing the city budget. Just saying that gave me a semi.

Andy Dwyer

  • The band has had a few different names over the years. When we started, we were Teddy Bear Suicide, but then we changed it to Mouse Rat. Then we were God Hates Figs, Department of Homeland Obscurity, Flames for Flames, Muscle Confusion, Nothing Rhymes With Orange, then Everything Rhymes With Orange, Punch Face Champions, Rad Wagon, Puppy Pendulum, Possum Pendulum, Penis Pendulum, Handrail Suicide, Angel Snack, Just the Tip, Threeskin… [long pause] Oh, Jet Black Pope. We went back to Mouse Rat, and now we are Scarecrow Boat. God, when I hear myself say Scarecrow Boat out loud I kinda hate it…
  • I made some vermin friends… friends sound stupid…uh, colleagues.

Wall Feeler

13 Mar

Everyone needs a wall tentacle in their home. These wall feelers will cost you $1,100.00 each, but worth the bang for your buck. Especially if you’re already part pirate.

Yoga Bunny

Yoga Bunny by Brian Russo features blasts of colour and simple sketches that really represents the energy of each pose – it’s also super cute. Scroll along the bottom bunny images for a few of my faves: Boat Pose, Mountain Pose and Camel Pose.
