A  L  O  H  A !

“For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.”

"All my life, 
as down an abyss 
without a bottom. 
I have been pouring 
van loads of information 
into that vacancy 
of oblivion 
I call my mind." 
                                Logan Pearsall Smith 

“We become aware of the void as we fill it.” 
 Antonio Porchia

" Then, 
from the black storm 
through which we seem
 to have passed. . . 
 we emerge prostrate, 
without a thought, 
a we that is void 
of content.” 
 Marcel Proust

“Youth always tries 

to fill the void, 

an old man learns

 to live with it.” 

        Mark Z. Danielewski


If you put
your ear to mine
you'll hear the ocean;
I'm hollow
but fine.

Ever feel vacant
in a not-bad way?

Is this
what they call
"Re - lax - ation"
