"... Everything is in the language that we use ..." / Layli Long Soldier (Oglala Lakota)

"... "Real" poems do not "really" require words ..." (Layli Long Soldier)

There is so much to learn about the Oglala Lakota.  I am learning.  Learning takes time.  Although I am relatively poor in terms of money, I am rich in time.

I hope you have time to listen.

As soon as you're born they make you feel small 
By giving you no time instead of it all 
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
(John Lennon, lyrics from "Working Class Hero)

I'm not an early riser and rarely see the dawn. and I've never been much of a fan of poetry. neither am it rich in money not time it seems as there never seems to be enough time to get done what I want in a timely manner. that could be my fault though.

I am not sure about being rich in time, I don't even want to have a guess. But I enjoy stealing moments of time to do/read/watch/listen to the unexpected gifts along my way.
