2006

Slight intuitions of the essential unity.
Microcosm that impose its laws,
the metaphor of its hidden relations
and the creator power of its limits.
Leaps into the void.
The matter that is rebelled against the plane.
The game and the symbolic, the chance and the necessity.
The radical surprise of the world.
Remains of present and past shipwrecks.
The ways of the perception
and the transmutation of the matter and of the spirit.
The secret of the wood.
The light, the space and the mystery.
And the celebration of the discovery.
