The Impossible and the Absurd


"In order to attain the impossible, one must attempt the absurd."


Not everybody recognizes this fact about pursuing impossible dreams. Absurdities are sometimes necessary. They come with the territory... and the territory is not chartered. Things one finds oneself doing in uncharted territory often appear absurd to those abiding in known and well-trod lands.

Spending two months traveling about, writing books and performing poetry. That is the plan for the "Impossible Tour." Leaving a tenured professorship to do that...is absurd.

I am shopping for my travel car, lining up quiet and peaceful residencies (with friends and at spiritual retreats)where I can write, and drawing on maps...

Some of us are born into impossible bodies. Some of us are born into impossible families. Some of us are born with impossible social limitations. Some us are are born looking and acting like someone or something that has never been seen before. And some of us live lives that are nothing more than a series of absurd journeys...

Who is willing to attempt the absurd? To look absurd? To have all of one's dreams laughed at? Doubted? Who is ready for the impossible journey?

I AM
