It is no easy thing, living. but it is a harder thing giving in to the darkness. Every act of creation becomes an affirmation of the light. One portrayal of the Tree of Life in the Jewish Kabalah as outlinde in pre-medieval texts is portrayed as the Ladder of Lights. At the top of the ladder is the Light Without Limit, and that is what I believe we may be strivfing for when we create. Do we hope to become one with the piece on which are work8ng and having a conversation with it as well as with the media with which we are working, and sometimes the conversations coialesce and there is a new meaning derived from the two. Being a stranger to others sometine creates a situation where one is a stranger to oneself. Do we know where we're going. Most likely not. Do we need to know. I'm not sure. It is a sad thing that now, the older one gets, the more isolated one becomes from the society in which one is trying to live. Things have changed so much and few mutual reference points exist as the sequel generations have been educated differently and one has to to a long way to find people who've had anything near a classical education. Does tht make things wrong. No, yes, I'm not sure. It is hard to find people who read anymore, or have read any of the books I'v read, the works of Octavio Paz, the poetry of Neruda, the work of Milan Kundera, and other European and Asian writers. I'm not sure if this is because I live in the uSA, and this situatuion may not be prevalent in other parts of the world.
