Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Beyond the Rooftops



Singular expression of a Universal light
contemplate the moment, let it burn tonight
Mithras, Jesus, Dionysus, Tammuz:
days will lengthen no matter who you choose

shall we pause at the turning point
where matter equals space
shall we pause, just for that moment
then resume without a trace?

clinging to a secret past lets out a silent sigh
surfeit of deepest sorrow when the ancient gods all die
next: know we are the dancers, radiant beyond the sun
we are electric matter, we are all and we are none

so chase a tiger by the tail, run into the night
drink in the draught of yuletide ale--I think you better might
goddesses and starry myths illuminate the sky
you can witness wonder and dance beyond the why

The undeniable beauty of parquet flooring is financially out of reach for many people. A cost comparison between

replacing the old worn out wall to wall carpeting and installing parquet flooring will show that the parquet choice

is less expensive if you install it yourself.

If you don't have sub flooring which can be sanded and varnished, you might consider do it yourself parquet

flooring. Eight or twelve inch squares of finished oak are available in several shades of stain from dark walnut

like oak to pale natural tones. The wood grain is preserved in all finishes and the final clear coat will stand up

to most traffic.
