on destruction

The role of destruction, and of the working out of polarities, is a subject that has been dealt with an the alchemical tradition for a very long time.  Alchemically, it is understood that the issue you are dealing with, in which you find yourself (the prima materia) MUST go through a process of putrefaction, of...

There are some things about creativity that have been on my mind.  I have been trying to hone in on the qualitative experience of the creative moment... what does it feel like to be creative?  What kinds of qualities distinguish the feeling of being creative from other types of feelings, like the feeling of 'producing',...

falling horizons

today I stand on the horizon beyond the vast, known spaces my steps tracing a Moebius membrane as the white sea pours through my heart no there, no past, no unwanted memory --all swept lovingly into the waves seeds for waiting oysters did you know that I ...
