2007 Journal Entry

All finite things reveal infinitude.
-- Theodore Roethke

So why did I copy that particular line? Perhaps because it makes me think and puzzle out my own meaning. As a reader that's all a writer asks me to do, linger, ponder, make the writer's words my own. Decipher a meaning for myself.

Thinking that way reminds me of another line from my 2007 journal:

A leaf must fall where its roots lie. My roots are here.
-- Qui Xiaolong
