sorry to be so garrulous this morning.
& I know I repeat myself many times over.
Certain basic philosophical dilemmas are recurrent, because they're so interesting, so hard to resolve... because they dangle there like keys to the maze.
& these dilemmas spin out a history over time, of different allegiances & emphases, as we try to resolve them again & again.
This history is crystallized in complex responses (composed, struggling, beneath multiple simultaneous pressures & necessities) - which are works of art.
Then these crystallizations become models of resolution, for our own contemporary dilemmas : challenges, mountains to climb, summit views to behold - choices to negate & revise.
