darkness moves

gestures rather than signs

further awakenings

stroke by stroke

approach, explore stroke by stroke
land stroke by stroke

spread out
transform stroke by stroke

give rise to erect
release stroke by stroke

to grasp while abstracting yourself ever more, to grasp the tendency, the accent, the pace, the space. to grasp the underlying.

who could, wholly, escape from signs?

grasp: translate. and everything is translation at every level, in every direction.
