Next time what I'd do is look atthe earth before saying anything. I'd stopjust before going into a house
and be an emperor for a minuteand listen better to the windor to the air being still.
When anyone talked to me, whetherblame or praise or just passing time,
I'd watch the face, how the mouthhas to work, and see any strain, anysign of what lifted the voice.
And for all, I'd know more -- the earthbracing itself and soaring, the airfinding every leaf and feather over
forest and water, and for every personthe body glowing inside the clotheslike a light.
Next time / From now on I’m working on following the example set by my precious friend R.
