I BRING YOU THIS WORK IN BEHALF OF THE HUMAN TREASURE, WHICH IS TO CARE FOR AND ABOUT EACH OTHER AND TO KEEP OUR LONG COVERSATION GOING. THE CONVERSATION ONLY BEGAN TO GET INTERESTING ABOUT 70 THOUSAND YEARS AGO. THE CARE AND CONVERSATION THAT WE PASS ON TO EACH OTHER CREATES INCOMPARABLE COMMUNION. JUST AS EARLY MEMBERS OF OUR SPECIES LEARNED TO KEEP EMBERS FOR THE NEXT NIGHT’S MEAL AND FLAMES AGAINST NOCTURNAL ENEMIES, SO WE KEEP CARE, CONVERSATION, AND COMMUNION GOING, BY BLOWING ON WORDS TO KEEP THEM ALIVE.

THREE NEW BOOKS: PLEASE ADD YOUR REVIEWS TO AMAZON —
WORDS Words have done all wrong and words put nothing right yet I am choosing words, driven in the pursuit as birds to winter warm. Words have done us harm and ill our sickness suit yet I am using words, angry at the night as darkness on a lung. The words heap up like dung or sudden snow in height. Yet I am using words, picking at the cold root of their late, sad charm. Words failed even to alarm when doubts swarmed in to loot. Yet to abuse words a listless ear weighed light I will not go along.
