|one day she say to me:
"i am left-handed," say i. " in latin the word for left-handed is 'sinister', a most unfortunate labeling, but indicative of the modality of our times. dexter being the latin word for right-handed, with its unmistakable implications, has for the most part ruled and over-run the thinking of mankind. the reasonable, temporal, familiarindeed profanehave all but obliterated the former prevalence of intuitive, direct knowledge, but for the efforts of mystics, seers, and artists... the reasoning mind seeks to close all gaps; stop all leaks, and is thoroughly ensconced within and fascinated by itself. creative though the realms of reason may be, i feel a certain predilection for the open-ended, freedom-seeking kind of abstractions relegated to the realms of the 'unknown', or 'unknowable'."

"your womb... its your throne," i tell her, "that's somewhere in the middle. for the moment, its easier to speak of whats best to let go of than of what is worth holding on to."
