- We may explore the universe and find ourselves, or we may explore
ourselves and find the universe. It matters not which of these paths we
choose. Diana Robertson
Leo, I was compelled to leave school without any certificates as to
measurable 'mental competence', nothing. I had some pots I had made,
created, on a spinning wheel. Many years later I was looking at a
catalogue of a painting, the last easel painting by Paul Klee, it was
found in his studio after his death. That pot I made, created and took
home with me was represented in that painting. The pots we created<>shared
a most unique feature, a spout at the top and another spout half way down
upcoming from a swelling, pregnant like form set into the pot. I was very
shocked to see it in prototypical form there. If I recall I once sent an
image of it ...maybe I didn't. ;-)
I spent many, many hours looking out of the box (classrooms) over the
fields, beyond the school confines. I used to look especially at passing
clouds and wonder what they were looking down on...It was a very great
pleasure later, decades later to discover the work of Walt Whitman. Do you
know his poetry Leo?
There was/is\will never be any doubt about the cleverness of my teachers
at school. The MA's attested to it. But never knot;-) once did ever one
;-) come to me, public or private, and say something like...'Andrew, you
are a dreamer...go to the library and read Emerson...'
" When a faithful thinker, resolute to detach every object from personal
relations and see it in the light of thought, shall, at the same time,
kindle science with the fire of the holiest affections, then will God go
forth anew into the creation."
Dear Leo, humankind, especially the arrogant scientists and money mad are
in for some truly awe-full shocks in the next decade.
Let me sum it up thusly, in the purity of a well re(cognised ;-)
"What is to give light must endure burning."
