We can regenerate their passion their inquisitiveness their awe. Petition their protection and guidance through the written word. A tool of great worth. With pen in hand sight shall be bequeathed to the reader. The fire regeneration transmigration metempsychosis of the soul shall be achieved as a torch pass from generation to generation. A laying on of hands. A passing of the breath of Life …

    We are being watch by ancestors of the past. We are being watched by children of the future … through holes in our outstretched hands … may they applaud our incarnation …We are hung between these poles…  Our generation … Ours is the sound of one hand clapping … Can you grasp ?
