"I write about being tessellated. Manipulated by a pattern."

Being tessellated is a terrible prison as illustrated by all Escher's work. But we love these perfect patterns, perfect poems, mathematics or art. We love to create these worlds and yet the artist's studio or student's study is frequently a mess. We always stand outside our creations. Like G-d, thank G-d and thank Seedrum for setting me thinking. The final piece of the jigsaw is a relief. We can start again OR "plunge, never to return into the depths."

For all its charms, the island is uninhabited,
and the faint footprints scattered on its beaches
turn without exception to the sea.

As if all you can do here is leave
and plunge, never to return, into the depths.

Into unfathomable life.

I like that. It seems true at the subjective level. And yet, when we look at another person and their creations, they appear in the one pattern. I guess our mind thinks we are the God of them, too. The great delusion...

I really enjoyed what you wrote here. The artist's studio may not match the infinate pattern, but it expresses the inner self. This makes me think, "The mosaic infinity of mad dogs one must struggle through....... to find one's way ..................to the infinity of the peaceful realm beyond.

I like the idea that mad dogs and englishmen are closer to the fabric of my true construction, than even I realize.

thank you for the visit. Garden Weather. We need to get out more. Watching the earth and pattern sprout. Beyond expectation and current yield, the words take me to new worlds, not yet in harvest.

thanks John.

My cycle print wanders along a paved path with puddles and fades. Crocodiles laugh.
I'm away from home helping care for daughter's 6 month twins.
Like Rumi you open a new space and dive in.
Unfathomable.

He said: you are moving me outside my comfort zone into what would be my exclusion zone

me said: oh you understand SeeDrum. Am sure of that.

I pride myself in movement is life, and most have an instinct for self-preservation. so you read my blog. think about it, and take parts that work for you, and go from there. Isn't that what we all do.

Is pleasing to stop by your site, and see the varied amount of multi-media that is in a single blog. I aspire to have it like that, but most of my blogs scare people away, with the key being: "What is he saying here, I don't get it, or have no time for it, or not my cup of tea, will ignore it."

so appreciate you coming by and giving me feedback. I enjoy it.
