Winds Of Eternity

Post image for Winds Of Eternity

by Viktoria Vidali on February 24, 2017

in General,Monthly Post,Poetry

It is winter.

In the early morning I place lichen-covered
twigs that have fallen from the old madrones
into the blackened stove, slowly
adding dry pine that catches quickly
to fill the cold, dark cabin with
redeeming light.

Delirious Euphoria Of Eternal Life

Post image for Delirious Euphoria Of Eternal Life

by Viktoria Vidali on June 25, 2014

in Quotations

I was tied to life and bound to death, tied to time and bound to eternity, tied to my limits and bound to infinity, tied to the Earth and bound to the stars. Joined to my parents, my grandparents, my ancestors, united with my children, my grandchildren, my future descendants, joined to every animal, every plant, every conscious being.

United with matter in all its forms, I was mud, diamond, gold, lead, lava, rock, cloud, magnetic field, electric spark, soil, hurricane, ocean, feather. I was anchored in the human and joined to the divine. Rooted in the present, united with the past and the future. Anchored in darkness, united with light. Tied to pain, joined to the delirious euphoria of eternal life. ~ Alejandro Jodorowsky

Mono No Aware

Post image for Mono No Aware

by Viktoria Vidali on May 27, 2011

in Quotations

Look into the mirror and regard one more wrinkle, one more gray hair. The proper mono no ware attitude is not to call up for an appointment at the beauty parlor but to gaze, find things going as they must and therefore should and, if possible, smile.
