"I don't know what you learned from books, but the most important thing I learned from my grandfathers was that there is a part of the mind that we really don't know about and it is that part that is most important in whether we become sick or remain well." Thomas Large Whiskers, Navajo medicine man

read I Ching
read Tao Te Ching
read Yin Fu Ching
fill head with words.

dance to clouds
sing to birds
harmonize with plants
empty head of words.

mind full of words
mind empty of words -
same mind?

if same mind, mind is like suitcase.
if different mind, mind is like radio.
when suitcase and radio disappear,
where is mind?

"I have become aware of raw nature is in a state of change and how that change is the key to understanding. I want my art to be sensitive and alert to changes in material, season, and weather. Often I can only follow a train of thought while a particular weather condiiton persists. When a change comes, the idea must alter or it will, and often does, fail."

"Whereas knowledge simply requires information, wisdom requires understanding; knowledge informs us whereas wisdom transforms us; knowledge is something we have, wisdom is something we must become." (The World of Shamanism, Roger Walsh)
