When I have been out walking the dog in the dark and I come home hungry with no idea of what to make for dinner I start by slicing an onion and sautéing some garlic and then the rest of the dinner comes together. This series of images starts with some cotton fabric that had the residue of iron slip on wet clay from making nothingness plates for Omen-Azen in New York. These marks were the beginning of the story. You may do this, I tell you, it is permitted.
Begin again the story of your life.
--Jane Hirshfield, from De Capo, in The Lives of the Heart
