I love love and truth and beauty, god willing that mine eyes and my spirit and heart can recognize them as they unfold before all of us in the darkest and quietest and kindest of ways. I love all forms of art and truth-seeking, verbal and otherwise. I am a book man first and foremost, although I love music and painting, sculpture, woodwork, drawings, everything in which a human is honest in making something to endure. I am particularly interested in: Faulkner, the Romantic poets, Nietzsche, Rilke, Dostoevsky, Melville, van Gogh, Delacroix, Rembrandt, Conrad, Tolstoy, Camus, Keats, T.S. Eliot, W. Stevens, Whitman, and many others. Please drop me a message if you are interested in exchanging book or movie or album titles, anything, dear friends brothers sisters and all.

If you couldn't already guess, Faulkner is my all-time favorite writer.

Borrowing books from my dad @gregorydyczkowski look see what I found books and ideas are a family affair. Lots of energy held in the walls of a library, along the spine of a book. 
Life is real only then, when I am. #gurdjieff #books #penguin

A new moon teaches gradualness
and deliberation and how one gives birth
to oneself slowly. Patience with small details
makes perfect a large work, like the universe.

Some nights stay up till dawn, 
as the moon sometimes does for the sun. 
Be a full bucket pulled up the dark way
of a well, then lifted out into light.

This, and a stack of Rilke’s poetry and prose. 
“Ultimately, all poetic resolution may have realized itself unexpectedly by just such incidental causes, not only when it took possession of a temperament for the first time, but repeatedly, at every turn of a nature which was fulfilling itself artistically. 
Who can name you all, you confederates of inspiration, you who are no more than sounds or bells that cease, or wonderfully new bird-voices in the neglected woods, or shining light thrown by an opening window out into the hovering morning; or cascading water; or air; or glances. Chance glances of passers-by….” From “The Young Poet” essay
