understanding develops through imagination

people learn through the things they make

there is a rhythm between problem solving and problem finding

a gathering of the self

Union of the soul and body harmoniously linked,
it is a gift of innocence,
an illumination of shyness,
a refolding of the body in its intention.

love is in me

joy is in me
it lives in my body
rises like a lymph
immersed in her I share colours and light
I become her
becoming also myself
I respect her
respecting myself
I love her
loving myself
She is within me and outside of me
She surrounds me, radiates in me, illuminates me, comforts me, without a gift in exchange
I am embracer - embraced
love is in me

fate is kind

fate is kind
fate is kind
fate is kind
inspiration like a good mother returns and you are once more on your path
you must believe in life
Believe that you can know the truth about life
truth is the goal

a sentimental domestic bias with a sublime over-reaching into the infinite.

I had to

I realized before bed that I had to cut holes
woke this morning to truth
and trust
