  1. perhaps what we speak is the structure of speaking ... the opening to the other, and then the wait, the beat that silence fills, and then the breath that comes ....

    1. what can we possibly say? and yet it rises inside of us, this desire to speak (as you say) structure, but all of the structure and mystery already exists. do we mean to add to it or decipher it? do we mean to stick ourselves firmly in the soil by recognizing it? or is it the beat in between structure, the place where breathing is unnecessary (but possible) that we yearn to get to?

      i don't even know what i mean to suggest by this series of photographs except my yearning.

    1. thank you, fourteenth))

      what is your name? i feel i should know your name or at least a name with which you are comfortable sharing. it seems there is the common place (the spinning place) that we both sense. it seems in this way it is very necessary that i call you something more clearly. (and what does fourteenth refer to?)
