Early Spring '10

Blue sky, golden cloud ...
What a feeling of forever!
The eternal tree-tops
lithely remain mysterious.
A sign, you would think. -Alberto Blanco

Fall '09

"Imagination creates reality." - Wagner

“It is peculiar to mankind to transcend mankind.” - Schlegel

"Where the beam does not sear, In the shade, It's blithely poor in tones, Like beginners, to learn from nightingale."

"Be Silent, or say something better than silence." - Schelling

To visit the well-spring there, came down
From steps of the ranges
Which, following ancient lore,
I call the divinely built,
The fortress of the Heavenly,
determined in secret." - Holderlin
