This month’s writer’s quote comes from poet David Budbill (1940-2016) in the form of his poem


The first goal is to see the thing itself in and for itself, to see it simply and clearly

for what it is

No symbolism, please.

The second goal is to see each individual thing

as unified, as one, with all the other

ten thousand things.

In this regard, a little wine helps a lot.

The third goal is to grasp the first and the second goals,

to see the universal and the particular,


Regarding this one, call me when you get it.
