Ol Mark Twain got it right with this one, and so dearly I wish more people knew this. When you travel, when you see the world you're a part of, there is no other way to see things than connected. We are all one, one soul spread out across billions of faces. It has always been this way. Go, find this truth, if you have not already. ...

Some needed silence after an menagerie of noise, traffic, and chaos. I am learning how I prefer to travel, what I prefer to see when I wander from home, and I know this: cities are not it. I want forests, mountains, or seas. I want cemeteries, silent and still. I want to hear this planet, and tread softly upon it. This is all. This is ever all.
This Seed Line kicked off what was Typewriter Series #12. I can remember being there, 12 poems in, and having no idea where it would lead, how far it would go. I cannot understand how far it's come, how many words have spilled.
Remember, there is stillness to be found amidst the frenzy of a day. There are bits of peace and calm and beauty, even idyllic and halfway toward cliche.

So fascinating seeing where great writers worked, lived, and drew inspiration from. Fascinating seeing other word lovers being as fiercely homebody. Ol' Samuel Clemens called this place home, and I am fairly sure he, above all, would be pretty sour in his grave, knowing that someone is charging over $40 for two people to see it.
This little gooseberry was amazing the Seed Line of Typewriter Series #14. Have you ever called out to the universe to be found? Who did you want to be found by? If you haven't yet been, fear not, your time will come.
