I’d like to learn acupuncture of the ear, to ease someone’s pain. I’d like to learn how to stand on my head for meditative periods of time. I want to learn chess and how to bake bread. I want to know how to sew my own clothes and to speak Japanese. I want to figure out how to grow lettuce, basil, and chives, how to grow pumpkins so they thrive. I want to learn to drive standard, my father tried to teach me, one winter in Germany, but I didn’t master it. I want to learn to kayak. I want to learn the banjo. And how to recognize birds by their songs and their shapes in the sky. And how to walk the territory of dreams and wake up knowing where I’ve been—and why.
