It's all about horizons

The horizon line -- the one that separates the earth from the sky is not real. It is not a real line that is.

We move towards it, and it retreats before our eyes. We capture it much the way we would capture the wind -- in the offing, always just about to happen.

Retrospective on a June walk

I walked through the neighbourhood late one beautiful June afternoon. On the way I saw an empty space where once a tree had grown. All that remained was a circle of dirt in a green lawn. The tree removal people had been there -- indeed the tree removal people had been all along that street. Not even a stump or a root left - extracted like so many bad teeth. This tree though was the inspiration for my 2009 Urban Tree.

I will remember it fondly.

Centre or Centered?

Centre of the Universe or centered on the Universe - small change makes a large difference.

Flowing Confluence

One point; a coming together, a gathering and then dispersal.

Potential, and Potentiality.

The blank canvas, the white page, the empty walls all shout "Potential"

I shout back, "Challenge, nothing more".
