a poem by Mary Oliver (thanks, Carrie P):

I Have Decided
I have decided to find myself a home
in the mountains, somewhere high up
where one learns to live peacefully in
the cold and the silence.  It's said that
in such a  place certain revelations may
be discovered.  That what the Spirit
reaches for may be eventually felt, if not
exactly understood.  Slowly, no doubt.  I'm
not talking about a vacation.

Of course at the same time I mean to
stay exactly where I am.

Are you following me?
