Moss/ Schulte o.p. blog conversations on the project
DM: we are such complex systems... amazing: the sun warms our skin in that moment we move out of a tree’s shadow...
FS: quoting Sophokles" A human being is only breath and shadow." - those wise old greek guys ;-)
DM: We’re talking about dichotomies, opposites, this & that, skin & sun, if it’s not one thing it’s the other, gravity & time, and stationary bicycles too. FS: The acorn may dreams about the earth while living on a tree - or maybe about the sky - it's all in between and In the fall it seems as we are falling.
DM: Speaking of trees and falling: seeming, in-betweening, dreaming, occasionally screaming, feel needed right now -- yeah, that illusory space in the middle could be a dwelling, a habitat, a mini-vacation from deciding.
FS: An inspiring thought, opening a door to a moment of timelessness, a quiet space that you enter by an sudden awareness, a now, a stone thrown into the water and you watch its echoes in in the expanding waves of the water rings - a chord touching you forever before it fades.
DM: Frank, for me, it’s all about the contrast. You and I (and just about everyone else) are marking moments and coordinates in a wonderfully deep game of light and dark, fire and ice, foreground and background, memory and expectation. It’s a huge field of material, this stuff that we’re deeply enmeshed in, yet meta-playful with. Every change of position of anything produces a new world to understand — I mean, a new diving-board and pool… (not to mention, a new “point-system”!).
