My name is Zach, and I'm a college student living in San Antonio, Texas. I've created this blog as both a journal to express my thoughts and experiences and as a means to share ideas with others.

I prefer silence to sound, and the image produced by words occurs in silence.

The Fear of Burial

mythologyofblue:

In the empty field, in the morning,
the body waits to be claimed.
The spirit sits beside it, on a small rock —
nothing comes to give it form again.

Think of the body’s loneliness
At night pacing the sheared field,
its shadow buckled tightly around.
Such a long journey.

-Louise Glück, excerpt from “The Garden”

mythologyofblue:

Let me begin again as a speck
of dust caught in the night winds
sweeping out to sea. Let me begin
this time knowing the world is
salt water and dark clouds, the world
is grinding and sighing all night, and dawn
comes slowly, and changes nothing.

-Philip Levine, excerpt from the poem, “Let me begin again”

I don’t feel that it is necessary to know exactly what I am. The main interest in life and work is to become someone else that you were not in the beginning.

— Michel Foucault (via mythologyofblue)

I shut my eyes in order to see.
