knowledge dissolves solidity

reading ‘six memos for the next millenium’, so i can revisit and reconsider some of the musings i made on the lightness of being, when beginning this blog however many years ago. 

need to read ‘de rerum natura’ by lucretius.

at once instrument and ear

refreshing my memory of rilke’s elegies as i feel the theme concerns the flash i am currently workshopping, and came across this quote discussing the poet:

‘at each stage now and again the miracle occurs, his delicate, hesitant, anxiety-prone person withdraws, and through him resounds the music of the universe; like the basin of a fountain he becomes at once instrument and ear’  hesse on rilke

now i’m tempted to dig up the short story ‘basin’ i wrote when staying in paris with my sister taryn, but i should probably stay on task.
