THE CIRCLE AND THE SQUARE
On a personal level where do I stand in the circle of my life?
Can I see its evolutions? its slowly evolving spirals?
Am I awake to its changes? to the sudden insights that light up an entire life?

Yet too often I feel washed ashore, like Odysseus after the storm, useless, nameless and unknown to all in a foreign land.
