Be a metaphor today. Be something more than just a human.
Today I am the universe’s smallest library, continuously looking for new material.
There is no copyright in my library, but you should always respect the books. It is impossible to steal them, but you are encouraged to use the photocopier. Take the copies to your library and keep your edited books and encouraged piracy there. Do not leave an unnecessary mess and do not create an unnecessary disturbance in my library. I will always clean up the mess, but you shall not be permitted to enter again. Today I am a library and if you so choose, you may pick out any book to read. But who these days truly has the time and patience to read entire books? Right of admission reserved.
What are you today?
My imagination a clean pane of thick glass,
a clean canvas.
Both awaiting destruction.
It starts with a thought, a spark ignites.
With the right intention the spark will drive the thought to impact.
If both the thought and intention behind it are strong enough, the glass will crack
causing it to spiderweb,
opening my imagination to new cracks leading to new ideas.
Each brush stroke leads to the next, filling out the canvas.
Slowly building the image stroke by stroke.
Never to be a clean canvas again.
Never again to be a clean pane of glass.
I cannot help but think of the irony – the price for the creation is a destruction.
There is beauty in that destruction.
Perhaps a subliminal lesson in duality?
Is there perhaps a price for creating – a give and take?
Perhaps there is a duality in everything,
but for a duality to exist balance must be achieved.
Finding that balance is in itself an art.
