||57349 another shore||The sea sunders as it joins, and washes the ends of distant lands even as it provides a heaving pathway to them. As we cast our eye at the horizon, our imagination’s arrow attempts a gossamer bridge to the unknown, over an endless plain of sighs.||11/22/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||57311 various mysteries||A note is sung, flung freely out, into the air. What is essential, what draws us in to listen, what siezes our attention?

||57208 mise-en-abîme||As the grip of sleep tightens, my purchase on the world dissipates. I drift into a misty forest, where birds and insects drone, and soft leaves on tender branches brush my skin. Voices speak in dim words, bubbling up like the oracular gasses of Delphi. But then I start, and I feel the jolt of my muscles contracting, and I cannot recall what was said.||7/5/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
