the world in your hands

Several weeks ago while creating this collage, I noticed some words on the scraps of paper from where I had cut my images. They were intriguing to me, so I tucked them away for a later time. While I was preparing to cut up more scraps and images in response to my meditation on a healthy body, I ran across the partial poem and decided it was time to find the rest. I offer it here. Enjoy!

Settle for nothing
less than the

object of your desire.

Desire. The weight of. The weight of our

desire. Then laugh, cry, but laugh

more than you cry, and when you hold

the world in your hands, love Her.

--Alma Luz Villanueva from "The Object"
