My work in this world is pushing, shoving, digging, unearthing. I work, I seek, I find. I believe I am getting better, better all the time, because I am better at following clues, following my nose. Bit by bit I unearth truth revealed as circumstance; each circumstance is built on years of my experiential living, and years of work by those who came before. I am a participant in a cultural revelation, which sometimes feels like a cultural revolution. I do believe we can become who we are meant to be. This journey is instigated by a destination unrealized. I have found a foundation. My work is to construct upon that foundation, one block at a time, one step at a time. Today I give you one step along my way.
The word "manifest" means "clear or obvious to the eye." I believe I can see it coming, just as we saw the terrible attack of Trump's cultish herds on our nation's capital coming, that insurrection of January 6, 2021.
I can see where I am going. I can see it coming. It will happen, but making real my internal insight is no simple task. Wending my way from yesterday's drawing to the best of all possible drawings is a task confused by possibilities. There is not a clear and constant route. I must follow instinct because intellect is not smart enough. It is trial and error, two steps forward one back two forward. That describes the journey that my intellect must follow. I hope today I can take a true step in the right direct. Yesterday I believe I did a step forward, but a little one. Yesterday's drawing is informative, smart, sings on key. It is not the most uncomplicated note I have sung, but it is true. A more basic note can be sung, one whose truth and clarity cannot be denied. I seek fundamental truth. I will not relent.
Drawing No.1: too complicated? Drawing No.2: too simple? Yes, no, maybe? Each is a step along the way, doubling as art, science, research, judgements, and questions; each remain a step, not a destination.
