Chera Hammons: Poet and Writer

"…a slow shutter on ambulation…"

Truth in Tension

I keep coming back to this quote:

“Much of beauty, both in art and in life, is a balancing of the lines of forward-flowing desire with those of resistance– a gnarled tree, the flow of a statue’s draped cloth. Through such tensions, physical or mental, the world in which we exists becomes itself.” — Jane Hirschfield, Nine Gates: Entering the Mind of Poetry

It’s something I think I ought to keep in mind, and that’s why I wanted to share it.
