FLAME & SOOT
I look forward,
into the possibilities, the consequences,
the experience of the unknown
I must go forward
it is inevitable,
to keep going because there is no turning back
A step forward
means letting go,
the end of, but also the beginning
I step forward
into waves, that change
the fragility of what is not yet
the point where I can only imagine
Like how I imagine myself,
on the shore of the sea
Rocks make up 75% of the earth's surface.
Rocks are lasting, they hold a record of time.
Rocks are foundational, they form the cities we live in.
Rocks are unique, they contain different minerals.
Rocks are specific to a region, to a landscape, to a place, to a building, to home.
A rock made up of smoke, loses its solidity, firmness, permanence,
it becomes unbound, dislocated, and dissolves into the unknown.
Into the unknown of life, which is full of discovery,
encounters, change, revelations...
