Like the website that hosts it, this blog is only concerned with using art and brief texts to uncover the bias and other limitations of thought conditioned by memory and tradition, thus also revealing how this largely unacknowledged tribal egotism that affects all human beings creates and sustains the systemic disorder and violence of the world in which we all live.

Without a radical awakening to the immense distance between our mental and social reality and the truth, we are condemned to continue living in the same cruel division, conflict, and sorrow to which we ourselves sustain with our personal memories, thoughts, and desires.

As Silence Meets Silence ― Photo Essay - 18

For reasons I can never fathom, a great love, clearly not mine, has come to nest in this inhospitable head and angst-ridden ribcage. From there it tries, most unreasonably, to address some small sector of the deeply fractured, busy, conflicted human hive. Time after time, finally aware that this broadcasting perch is poorly located, wrongly wired, and therefore incapable of eliciting proper attention to what it has to say, love pushes me towards my bike and, despite that it’s a workday and the dogs are yawping far too close to my heels, it drives me to a nearby stream where it likes to spend hours calmly caressing its pools, rapids, and banks with still alien, but wide-open eyes. It almost never fails to happen, despite the opaqueness of gray matter, sinew, bone, and flesh, the mystery becomes apparent as silence meets silence and love enters love.
