Come On, Come On
Poetry is about capturing a moment, about reflecting back the feelings, the subtlety and the essence of our experience. It is about thinking, but clear thinking and the clarity comes through in this song by Mary Chapin Carpenter. I saw her a few years back and she talked about going to Brown University around the time Zen Master Seung Sahn was just setting up shop in Providence, Rhode Island which was very near the Brown Univeristy Campus. I always wondered if she ever met him.
