You should read Mr. Juarez. Because he is one of a kind. And also because you can read many of his lines by themselves- they can stand alone as a simple, succinct comment on being alive. You could take one line at a time, every day of the year,365 days worth, and make it a catechism of the whole human experience, peer into the kaleidoscope of our whirling days with one single line..I challenge you to try it.

POEM OF THE DAY
Ode On Solitude

Happy the man, whose wish and care
A few paternal acres bound,
Content to breathe his native air,
In his own ground.

Whose heards with milk, whose fields with bread,
Whose flocks supply him with attire,
Whose trees in summer yield him shade,
In winter fire.

Blest! who can unconcern'dly find
Hours, days, and years slide soft away,
In health of body, peace of mind,
Quiet by day,

Sound sleep by night; study and ease
Together mix'd; sweet recreation,
And innocence, which most does please,
With meditation.

Thus let me live, unseen, unknown;
Thus unlamented let me dye;
Steal from the world, and not a stone
Tell where I lye.
...
