tending the world

"To tend the world: read a little, listen to a little music."

- Adam Zagajewski, Another Beauty


"To wake and fall asleep, drowse off and waken, to pass through seasons of doubt, melancholy dark as lead, indifference, boredom, and then the spells of vitality, clarity, hard and happy work, contentment, gaiety, to remember and forget and recollect again, than an eternal fire burns beside us, a God with an unknown name, whom we will never reach."

- Adam Zagajewski

And so it is - and the secret is remembering those spells of clarity and happy work, when you are passing through that season of doubt. They will come again.

In the meantime, tend the world: read, listen to music.
