One Thing Through and Through
For the most part people live mired within the holes of their being. A lot of our creative effort is spent trying to get others to join us within these holes and validate the way we lead our lives. Much of writing or art does this. Come join me in my hole, my personal bomb crater. So what is an authentic thought, a real untrammeled thought? Is it the first thing that pops into my mind or something that has been mulled over and over? Does raw impulse guarantee authenticity? The more I delve into my various beloved disciplines the more I know how to sort this out, the more I begin to feel or sense the authenticity of things. Things come, things go. At least I can tell the difference.
