“Only a coherent perception of life, informed by artistic engagement, can offer the cynic of a dark age any hope or enlightenment, and make a largely brutish, inhuman existence bearable, enabling us to interpret life’s strangeness through the refined sensibility of what language pries open, allowing us to see, feel, touch and smell, if not intuit, the intimate war between perception and reality, ego and self, from which emerges the mind’s meaning and purpose for existing.”
Chuck Richardson, author of Smoke and So It Seams
“Forgetfulness of everything but bliss,”
