They are the good
Who live in the shades
And tones of what they say

Everyday
Seems Sunday by some degree
And its as if
There were a library on every hill

No one becomes too emotional
There is a dignity that carries
Through every waking hour

Apart and remote
From any actual hate or love
A crowd of placid solitudes
Whose light is defused
Through milky clouds

The air around them
Is neither hot or cold
They come . . . They go . . .
They do not move

Excellent!
This reminds me of what it feels like when I sit in meeting...with all the other friends searching their hearts for messages... there is something there that is very important..

It is hard to see light move, you have to feel it...

Last time I talked to Big Ed, my boy was worried that perhaps I was overdoing some projects I've been up to lately, not saving any down-time for myself....

"You need to take a Sunday," he told me....it was Tuesday, but I knew what he meant.

I got the feeling that you were talking about some church-goers who have a holier-than-thou attitude but are actually cold-hearted.  The words "placid solitudes" felt like a play on "solid platitudes".  

I am probably barking up the wrong tree.

One of the things I appreciate so much about your work is that I don't just read and enjoy... I read and remember. *S* This is definitely one I want my brain cells to keep... Excellent!
