Abstract or Summary
  • As I began to explore the evocative nature of language, the creation of themes and images, and the rhythm and beauty of words that I feel must accompany meaning, I discovered that I had always seen and heard and felt the world as many of my characters do; in this I came to realize that I have always, therefore, lived somewhat apart from things in the world that I have always experienced existence as troubling and severed and yet as something breathtakingly beautiful. Somewhere between these two truths is a place of perpetual loss, a place suspended and uncertain, yet one that is full of the unbearable possibility of hope. In my work, in this collection of stones, drawing on my own sensibility in the use of language that straddles both the dark and revealing, and in invoking composite themes that offer no grounding and that invite decentering, I ask the reader to cross over into this world, however unnerving. It is not a secure or comfortable world; it is not a world that offers answers or a final place to settle into. However, it is a world that attempts to give language to the conceptual aspects of our fading conditions, both individually and collectively, to the precarious and veiled places of our hopelessness, and to the bright and vibrant sparks that exist within the sputtering of death--that of the larger connotation of transience.
