Ri brakumas min. Ri alproksimigas sian kapon, kaj nun ĝi tuŝas mian vangon. Mi reage fermas miajn okulojn pro surprizo. Ri ne moviĝas. Mi povas senti la aeron de ria malrapida spirado sur mia kolo. Male, mia spirado estas tre rapida. Kaj ri verŝajne sentas, ke mi maltrankvilas, ĉar ria nuda brusto tuŝas la mian.

As its headlight pierced the darkness of the fertile plains, the driver honked the horn as though to awake the sleepy environs to the spectacle of the speeding train.

Pienso en el amor, pienso para perros.

I cannot remember the taste of dessert, when I climb out my dress my ribs creak and they hurt, I'm down three sizes to a minus 2, I need to put cotton in the sides of my shoes. I cry in my sleep for one last little bite, a glass of tap water st...

William Blake & Jacob Boehme : Imagination, Experience & the Limit...

By: Dr. Kevin Fischer

An exploration of the vital importance of imagination and experience, as exemplified in the works of William Blake and Jacob Boehme. This paper is based on a lecture given at the Temenos Academy London, and published in the Temenos Academy Review 20 (2017).

Boehme wrote of his works that ‘a Man’s Reason, without the light of God, cannot come into the Ground [of them], it is impossible, let his wit be ever so high and subtle, it apprehends but as it were the Shadow of it in a Glass’.17 As Blake wrote in Jerusalem, when ‘the Reasoning Power in Man’ is ‘separated/From Imagination,’ it encloses ‘itself as in steel, in a Ratio/Of the Things of Memory’.
