"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now."
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

525,600 minutes, how do you
measure a year? In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee. In
inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.... how do you
measure a year in the life? MEASURE IN LOVE.
(revised) Lyrics from Seasons of Love - Rent

Just returned from Art Basel Miami. It was a scene. More art than anyone could absorb! Excess beyond comprehension. A commentary on our culture?
One of my favorite works was a Bill Viola video called "Becoming Light." A man and woman embrace under the water, occasionally breaking the surface before they make the final descent down into the primordial sea.
