TOTD 02 Aug 2002


We rest here while we can, but we hear the ocean calling in our dreams,
And we know by the morning, the wind will fill our sails to test the
seams,
The calm is on the water and part of us would linger by the shore,
For ships are safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.

-Tom Kimmel & Michael Lille

commit yourself to a life in which
you constantly consume your own security
-forcing yourself to seek a higher
security, which you attain and then destroy
in order to go higher still-
it sounds unbearably painful
but it's just growing pains
didn't you say you wanted freedom?
freedom is not a tv set and bank account
convenience, security, won't get you high
won't even keep you safe
they'll consume you
and you know it

-Paul Williams

wise guys
All I know about Tom Kimmel & Michael Lille is that they wrote the poem "Ships."

Paul Williams wrote the books Das Energi and Energi Inscriptions.
