life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life


May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

~ Edward Abbey

the home of the master

is not always what we expect.

the soul of the yogi is sometimes, more than a little, troubled.

the heart of the guru

not always easy or calm.

the path of the pilgrim

not always smooth and straight.

a lot of good angels

seem to be very scruffy.

the most valiant warriors come carrying death on their swords.

the best pastures for the beloved sheep

are often quite tricky to find.

the best of life

usually comes to us the very hard way.

we fall. we learn.

we rise. we fall again.

in these days of fast food.

loud, busy

and instant everything.

silence, prayer

and that elusive, most difficult, quality-

self mastery

are still the pathways

to happiness


Amy Lloyd

Let’s run. Let’s keep running. Let’s swallow so much blue our mouths become skies become oceans. Hold on to whatever of me is easiest, like my hands or this thing in my chest that can’t stop talking about you.
