[c’mon, who can’t relate to this? after nearly two decades of study, sometimes even more, after two decades of having a purpose, we all come to face The Open End. where do we go from here?]
[that’s one option, travel to taiwan and walk the rocks towards the sea, but all that does is bring us to a different Open End that’s really the same as the last.]
[no matter how high we climb, what rocks we scale, we’re still just looking into the great land of undefined possibility, open for anything, big enough to contain us and them, merciless and merciful.]
[taiwan or malaga beach, it doesn’t matter. The same sea, the same World Ocean, the same two men with three fishing poles will be there waiting for you.]

the bulb, oakland
[so we wander more, and we open the gift of love.]
