it actually reminds me of the Maitri rooms at Naropa. each its own color but a space infusion offering holding. I also experience hope in this. perhaps a kind of hope that is somehow an opposite to dogma. like the person who walked their path (self-awareness) continuing to walk their path. their hands leak their stature caressing cherry blossoms gently.


someone else looking on notices the love in the season because of the agent the hand of another is.


something so peaceful in the overall tone/shape here. a traveller travelling simply. breath moving through chambers—not counted too closely but also not overlooked.


the instant "overcoming" of the futures is important. as if time can truly melt into non-distinct presence (no binaries, no lines, no structures) and be a kind of holding (lover) when this certain contemplative tone is held over a long period.


somehow time becomes space!
