My pen halts, my fear overcomes. I said this in a class: Words cannot convey the entirety of experience. Transcription isn’t translation. How could I fully speak or write, sing or relieve the depths and touches, the caresses and the fumbling of lovers who sought elysian fields? How could I bring my unexpected clever

In the dark night does one encounter brightest light, exchanging your fumbling for caresses by the warmest knight. For to with, the passionate and the compassionate are one, just One.
And here we have the mystic’s song: Love is the light in my darkness, warmth is the darkness of my soul’s longing.
