Decisions

03BEY_Angle_Blk

 

Between thought and motion lies a lifetime of indecision. Between impulse and action lies an eternity of procrastination. We live in the angles between those split indecisions; locked in the prisons formed by our accommodations, shut out by our deferrals and postponements. We are exiled to nations of the yea or nay behind the wire of choices, judgments’, compromises and reconciliations. Isolated from our feelings by other considerations; our final adjudications are questions of reason. There are a thousand judges awaiting our every verdict. The sentence is mandatory for acts of treason.

In the distance between the thrower and the stone cast lies an ocean of experience and shared guilt. Behind every curse there is concealed a blessing; a secret prayer for atonement through condemnation. Just as in every question lurks the desired answer, so every answer is a masquerade of some unasked question. Life is an island in an ocean of questions – questions and answers separate us into archipelagoes of existence.

  1. It's in the gut! Majestic. I love the precision of your scalpel, I always stood astonished by the clarity of your brilliant mind and the literary weight you invest.

  2. Some would rather be crucified than made a any decisions, but whether they are made, or they are deferred - they define our worlds. Even avoidance of decisions are decisions in themselves. The difference is only whether you define yourself - or let others do it for you.
