the lazy man

distilling images
into pure form
is hard work–

& he calls himself lazy!

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is a visible labor and there is an invisible labor. — Victor Hugo

    • Lol, you are right Deb–I am giving a nod here, to a blogger on here who write simply magical haiku, who says his poems are short because he is lazy. :) I think he is exactly the opposite of lazy, as being that condensed takes hard work 🙂


  2. we shall call him/her lazy if he/she fails to share with kindred souls the outputs of that invsible labor! A lamp is not lit to be hidden under a bed!
