Glass bridge to Hunter Museum, Chattanooga TN, Sept 2017
Last night I read an article on my phone—Bjork interviewing herself, and I felt a tingle in my ribcage and on the tops of my thighs. I felt this strongly at the Hunter Museum in Chattanooga. A somatic response to arts, not just an idea.
And then I came up with some questions:
What if we were happier?
Would we make different things?
Would our minds fire differently?
Would our mind’s fire behave differently?
Would our mind’s eye cast a different light?
What would we cast?
What light would we sing?
How would the missions differ?
What. small. molecular. changes would be made? With our vision, with our voices?
Be not afraid, angels, to rearrange the pattern,
to create form where form must be seen,
and to dismantle, dissolve, and resurrect where it is also needed.
It is also needed.
What if we were happy?
