If the problem is borders, we’re in a posture of folding inwards. Nature doesn’t see objects or cruelty (animals can’t be snobs!) but me, me the human—I fashion color to another country. If the problem is the frame—sight, form, beauty—time for a breather.
A ruin is always embedded in a garden. Take the lid off your head and you become animal.
