What is Old is New

Perhaps a brief interlude is warranted on this site. A few whispers from the past follow:

"And as all things have been arose from one by ye mediation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation."

(Isaac Newton -- 1680)


"Listening not to me but to the Logos
it is wise to agree that all things are One."

All things come out of the One and the One out of all things. .... I see nothing but Becoming. Be not deceived! It is the fault of your limited mind and not the fault of the essence of things if you believe that you see firm land anywhere in the ocean of Becoming and Passing. You need names for things, just as if they had a rigid permanence, but the very river in which you bathe a second time is no longer the same one which you entered before.

'You cannot step into the same river twice;
All things flow; nothing endures'

(Heraclitus -- 500 BC)


At two or three
I watched the clouds
above the Danube
under the sky
next to the park
below the academy
        of Art.
My nimbic mind
watched the clouds
watching me
in their whiteness
as blue barges
flowed across
my brown
Danube eyes.
