You lived creatively letting art define your life, fearless in your every day, walking the path I should have walked if I had courage in my veins; but I was a percentage man, careful always not to fail.  I talked of art but lived by common sense and progressed cautiously toward an unmarked death.

Some come by to read a line or two, see nothing here and soon move on their way.  That I understand.  Life is full of glances.  But to you, who read beyond an opening phrase I say this:
Online we meet.. inside.. out:  emotions first, and dreams of course.  Some anecdotes: piecemeal at best.  Brief glimpses of a passing life, written in faltering intimacy.
Reader meet the writer of these words.
… Let me hope that you who caught my words, and held them briefly in your thoughts, find the peace to quench your doubts and walk with me towards your chosen path.

(Peter, I hope you will forgive my correcting some “typing errors” in the original.  I realize they may not have been actual errors as this is meant to be a poem in its original state, but as I was excerpting it, I hope you won’t mind my changes.)   —  KMAB]

It is the polite outsider who attracts my attention.  For me at least, possibly as part of my oddness, it is the sensibility of the Blogger or writer which piques my interest rather than their age or sex.  It is the resonance I get from their responses or circumstances.  It is a feeling that, yes out there, beyond the scope of normal conversation or interaction, lives a being who is almost my double or ambassador in a different set of circumstances, on a continent I am unlikely to visit.  The feeling is strangely re-assuring.  It’s almost, if only for a moment, like being less odd.

Beauty, I believe, is a proportionate derivative of suffering.  That is to say, that the potential for beauty is born within suffering, and if cultivated in a particular manner, its subject can thereby become beautiful.  Or, to put it differently, true beauty is the struggle to transcend the human condition.  It is the place in between suffering and the attainment of perfection in its entirety.  It is complicated, but I find, well worth the effort in trying to define.

I forget though, where beauty actually lies.  I forget that perfection lies in the struggle of the human spirit to achieve what is merely believed in our minds to be perfection.  The struggle is what is perfect, what is beautiful.  Not the end.  It’s the journey.  It’s the choices.  It’s what defines us.  It’s the pursuit of character that makes us beautiful beings.

[Today’s post are two quotes from two sites (four in all).  I must admit to a certain amount of laziness in my pursuit of other blogs.  Someone finds my blog and “likes” it, or comments on a posting, and I go see who they are.  Occasionally, by extension, someone will have “liked” a couple of posts on a blog I’m looking at and I’ll go see what they’re up to.  VERY serendipity, I know, but that is my nature.
Anyway, above are the two quotes from the two sites which recently “liked” one of my postings.  The first two are from “countingducks” (http://countingducks.wordpress.com/ ).  The second two quotes are from “thecultivationofbeauty” (http://thecultivationofbeauty.wordpress.com/).  As always, if you enjoy the quotes, go visit the original sites!  —   KMAB]
