Raw, adjective: 11. unprocessed or unevaluated: raw data.



"The heart that breaks open can contain the whole universe. Your heart is that large: trust it. Keep breathing. Through our deepest and innermost responses to our world - to hunger and torture and the threat of annihilation - we touch that boundless heart."

~ Buddhist scholar Joanna Macy

(Prana-buzzed and sleep-eluded after an intoxicating night at the ballet, in the wee hours of the morning I pulled an old battered book off the shelf in search of savasana. Cracking it open, out fluttered an old to-do list dated Monday 26 June 2000, reminding me (urgently!) these 10 years later to "buy false eyelashes, practice soft-shoe Gershwin number with Jeff, repair tap shoes before opening night, check traffic on I-95," and "call Brian to see that movie?" Hee. Hey Brian, you wanna see that movie?

This quote was scrawled on the other side. I smiled. Why do we ever doubt?)
