“Does it matter whether one is required to complete the work
or whether one is free to desist from the work
if you must meet a final art that certainly you did not make?”

*****

“Philosophical problems are conceptual confusions
that arise when a form of utterance appropriate
to one mode of discourse is mistakenly used in the wrong context
Confusions must be unpicked employing ordinary uses of language.”

— from Tom Turner’s Notes

 

A Series of Nonsequiturs   Leave a comment

Tom once wrote:

“Complications,
ambiguities,
nonsequiturs.
I keep 
searching
for clarity . . . lucidity;
knowing each time I seek that
I’ll become more entangled.

No. I’m not bored.
Just scared.
I’m 
moving toward
a sort-of silence . . .

I know what you’re thinking —
Bull-shit!
Bull shit!
Bull Shit!

Since the
significant things

I want to say
have the wrong

inflections;
intonations

for most arenas
of conversation:

I ramble on
into oblivion.

A series of nonsequiturs.”

Any sorrows the day may bring
cannot last beyond day’s end 
dying in the eyes of the setting sun.

My Serious Apprehension Of Being   2 comments

New Orleans Door (1 of 1) art_edit blogDoors are for Opening (A Door In The French Quarter) — Computer Art by kenne

My serious apprehension of being

Is freed by acts of becoming — 

Through the task of opening doors,

Where I learn from the past,

Laugh at today’s mistakes, and

Dream about tomorrow.

After The Fire   3 comments

Romero PoolsAfter The Fire — Computer Art by kenne

Fires destroy 
Fires renew
Opposites in
Need of
Each other.

After the fire
Comes the rain
Comes the sun
New life out of
Opposites.

Perception of
Opposites
Depends on 
The moment of
Experience.

Without experience
Moments
Are projected
As the perception
Of the other.

The other is the
Teacher w
ho meets the
Human need for a
Shared experience
Of being alive.

Mirror Watching People

Mirror, mirror on the wall
You image my world with integrity

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Your integrity gives my existence validity

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Give me insight least controlled by others

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Together we can weave a world of peace

Ideas Bloom Where Planted

Yet not the first,
planting ideas
generates a new beginning
forming the orientation
of the next
creating a path
for others to follow.
