On the display of endings as beginning

“Seeking means to have a goal; but finding means to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal. You, O worthy one, are perhaps indeed a seeker, for in striving towards your goal, you do not see many things that are under your nose.”

Further fathoming the nature of the gaze, Sam Renseiw stumbled upon a peculiar gathering of recently finished jewellery on display in a former hospital.

"I know that the past was great and the future will be great,
And I know that both curiously conjoint in the present time,
(For the sake of him I typify, for the common average man's sake,
your sake if you are he,)
And that where I am or you are this present day, there is the centre
of all days, all races,
And there is the meaning to us of all that has ever come of races
and days, or ever will come".--Walt Whitman

I am not always sure of the finding and the seeking, and the beginning and the ending, but I become more sure of the complicated simplicity of seeing, of hearing, and of caring as if things and people before one matter.

"It is essential... that in every case the "means whereby" rather than the "end" should be held in mind. As long as the "end" is held in mind instead of the "means," the muscular act, or series of acts, will always be performed in accordance with the mode established by old habits."
F M Alexander

As in: "I want boxes like that. If I had boxes like that, my life would be perfect."

like that idea that the means is the end, and then the next end, and then the next end--moment by moment, the eternal life of the here and now.

My great Patalab catch-up begins at last. So...

Often the journey's the thing, or as Robert Louis Stevenson would say it's better to travel in hope than arrive.

Amorphous is the tale of my beginnings and endings. I often don't see where things start and end...not until a certain amount of time has passed and all becomes clear. I tend to stumble forward with bemused expression wondering what it would be like to have a plan or a goal.

I would certainly like to keep things bettered ordered in boxes in my brain. In fact, I'd like to keep things bettered ordered outside my brain, too but I always fail miserably. I live by scraps of paper containing half formed ideas and numerous notes-to-self pinned to scuffed walls.
