“When you hate…”

When you hate, you generate a reciprocal hate. When individuals hate each other, the harm is finite; but when great groups of nations hate each other, the harm may be infinite and absolute. Do not fall back upon the thought that those whom you hate deserve to be hated. I do not know whether anybody deserves to be hated, but I do know that hatred of those whom we believe to be evil is not what will redeem mankind.

all the things you love

all the things you love

may you turn away
all the darkest things
and turn on the world
every time you sing

rolling on a ball
rolling off a log
rolling and falling for
all the things you love

may all the things you love
always
light the way you came
may all the things you love
one day
all know your name

breathe says the water
when trouble hides and seeks
to overthrow your order
and trade worries for your sleep

to the city walls
cast off doubt
with your bride fly off
reset the clocks

may you turn away
all the darkest things
and turn on the world
every time you sing

road work outside your window
construction down the block
induction of plans
demolition of clocks

breathe says the water
when trouble hides and seeks
to overturn your order
and trade worries for your sleep

rolling on a ball
rolling off a log
rolling and falling away
from all the things you love

all the things you love
will someday
go back the way you came
all the things you love
will someday / always know your name

In this world, are there more cheap things or expensive things not worth the money?

commitment is a subset of love

none of my best performances have been recorded 😔

Sometimes I have a lot of trouble figuring out how people zipped themselves into their clothes

there’s more profit in the darkest futures.…

the knickerbocker tennis club in Brooklyn is the oldest tennis club in New York City. My coach Winston Philip Ramsay is also the head pro there, and invited Cat & me to play on a windy Saturday in June. Just glorious.
