Maren Hassinger, Whirling. Wire and wire rope
I went for a walk over the dunes again this morning
to the sea, ... the walk liberating, I was released from forms,
from the perpendiculars, straight lines,
blocks, boxes, binds of thought
into the hues, shadings, rises, flowing bends and blends
of sight: ...
Maren Hassinger, Walking
I have reached no conclusions, have erected no boundaries,
shutting out and shutting in, separating inside
from outside: I have
drawn no lines: as manifold events of sand
change the dune's shape that will not be the same shape
Maren Hassinger, Wrenching News. New York Times shredded twisted.
so I am willing to go along, to accept
the becoming thought, to stake off no beginnings or ends
establish no walls: ...
risk is full: every living thing in
siege: the demand is life, to keep life: ...
Maren Hassinger, Remembering preserved rose leaves, cot, pillow
I will try
to fasten into order enlarging grasps of disorder,
scope, but enjoying the freedom that
Scope eludes my grasp, that there is no finality of vision,
that I have perceived nothing completely,
that tomorrow a new walk is a new walk.
- A.R.Ammons, from "Corson's Inlet"
The shutter button on my camera broke in Florida last October. I choose to not send it out for repair right away, to stop myself shooting images and use that time for other focusing. That 6 month period has been like a skip of stones, skimming hop hop hop-ripple ripple across placid water. Time of no-time. Good time. Life time.
Hope you are all well.
