  • Lately there is a sense of urgency about every move I make, every breath I take.

    Driven by some enormous inner blueprint
    revealed one fraction of an inch at a time
    I am overwhelmed with the passion to create something which is unclear,
    something which may never be complete,
    something which cannot be described or touched
    or even understood.

    And immersed as I am in this non-knowing
    there is at the same time
    a knowing so complete it transcends verbalization,
    a clearness of purpose so rare in my history I am in awe,
    a feeling, at last,
    of being Whole within myself.
