Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Like many of you I *hated* Buddy Rich, until I heard this, in which he beats the intestines out of "Birdland", making every part of it percussion. Read it and weep.

To effect coherent fluctuations
of quantum happenstance
requisites a substantial and stable core
in contact with sufficient sense of deftness not localized in any field of perception
but, rather, from where a dreamer, if but could, from within a dream
realize 'know'
whilst cultivating a growing resilience to surprise
from wonders shown
instantiate vacuous truth

When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

You know old pard, I guess that I’m a fool.
But I have got a lot of thoughts in me—
But what’s the use? There never was a school
Could teach a fellow to write poetry.
And yet it’s in my soul. I’d like to tell
The things I feel and see and sometimes think
Yet I can’t catch and put them into ink—
My thoughts are great—my speech so barren. Hell!”
