a long, narrow
line of breakage
especially in rock
So much poetry in fissures themselves. Since my earliest days, I have been drawn to rock, drawn to the fault lines and fissures in rock. On vacation in the small village of Feltzen South in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, Canada, two summers ago, I was wowed by rock formations at Ovens Park. They were poems writ large.
So, I tape out a quadrilateral on my Core Values grid and get out ink and paint. Start working my way along.
