Slick rocks

"...It is not the premise that reality
Is solid. It may be a shade that traverses
A dust, a force that traverses a shade. ..."

From "An Ordinary Evening in New Haven" by Wallace Stevens

" who must constantly throw away the lights' and write "in the dark"...
funny you should bring that up. I just said something along those very lines to someone else. shade is definitely a prerequisite to a lot of mulling through of the bigger picture.

Reality is plastic. That's my favorite phrase these days. It really is!

Currents of water, currents of thought to become lost in, the textured poetry of Wallace Stevens.

Love the ambiguity of this quote and the accompanying photo of layers of reality.
