Hear Here

HEAR HERE     Hammer, anvil, stirrup and drum echo vibrations in the Eustachian cave — down into its enclosed cochlear chamber — where wave modulations are measured for interpretation by the brain, giving meaning and music to the chaos of sound. I remember hearing a story of a king’s satorical conversion while contemplating his […]

CETACEAN SOUL SEARCH

TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN

   TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN   They operate contrary to the rules of common sense that we hold dear as proof that what we know is right, that we’re no fools and senses we possess perceive the truth. They ramble through eleven dimensions. Their motions, seemingly governed by chance, confuse and amend our comprehensions […]
