The Smoothest One

There is in the soul a desire for not thinking.
For being still. Coupled with this
a desire to be strict, yes, and rigorous.
But the soul is also a smooth son of a bitch,
not always trustworthy. And I forgot that.

Raymond Carver

  2. sometimes i'm struggling in that feeling. i want to be still, yet rigorous at the same time. i'm thirst for an adventure, yet i want that calmness in the morning watching the lights creeping through the paddy field, while sipping my morning coffee. thank you for sharing the quote, Alma. and such a gorgeous pictures. i'm picturing you enjoying the lovely day on your part of the world. and you know what, thank you so much for being part of my non-material, precious things and connections in life too :) let's have a skype chat sometime!
