LONG AGO AND FAR
AWAY, TOMORROW COMES
A partial interpretation from the artist's transient
The red to orange spheres are symbolic lava. It is a
view with an erupting volcano to the viewer's rear.
The red, hot lava flows across the plane and disappears
between the charcoal mountains.
I personally identify myself with the white bird above
the small white sphere. I feel myself hurrying about
the landscape trying to gain control after the eruption.
The eruption that was fore told, has come. Whether it
extends around the entire globe or just to my city is
unknown at this time. I only know that beneath the lava
lay all that I had known in this lifetime. Everything
is now gone. I no longer have a tangible past.
The obelisk marks the location of truths learned in
this place. These truths are symbolized by nine white
spheres. The spheres are moving toward the charcoal
mountains with the entire plateau of earth on which
The Nine truths represented as nine white spheres are
beyond the power and reach of the molten rock. I have
placed them near the obelisk in order to keep my perspective
on what is taking place.
The fist sphere reminds me that all is as it should
The second sphere contains the record of all that I
have been and all the worlds of which I have been a
The third sphere contains all that I will be and all
that is to come.
The second and third spheres give me a perspective on
how small a part of the Infinite All this moment and
this reality truly are.
The fourth sphere is my reminder of God. It is a collection
of the many ways in which I have perceived and communicated
with God. It is a link between my true being and the
non-physical part of the Infinite which connects me
with all things known and unknown.
The fifth sphere is my temple. It is where I can go
to be at one with myself. It is the place where I can
be isolated from all that exists with the exception
of my spiritual nature which I can identify as totally
An icon of this fifth sphere travels with me always.
It is the small white Sphere traveling with the white
bird that is me.
The sixth sphere is my space craft. It allows me to
travel the entire physical universe. It has the maps
and charts for all that has substance in the universe
and all those universes outside this one.
The seventh sphere contains the knowledge of all things.
It is the knowledge of all races of all times. It is
a record of every act and every reaction and all things
known and forgotten, lost or destroyed. It is the knowledge
of all dimensions and all times in the Infinite Potential
(the All There Is).
The eighth sphere is empty. It is the void of nothingness.
It is a reminder that all is nothing. It is the understanding
that All That Is has come from nothing. The building
blocks of the All There Is is nothingness.
Nothing is the perfect equilibrium between all things.
It is the absence of light without darkness. It is the
absence of sound without silence.
This perfect equilibrium of all things is the possibility
of all things. We live and exist and are conscious of
nothingness in a state of disequilibrium. The disequilibrium
of light and dark is light or dark.
Inside this sphere is the one supreme mystery of the
universe. The mystery of what creates disequalibriums.
What causes perfect nothingness to manifest the physical
This cause is what many call God.
The ninth sphere represents what is beyond the Supreme
God. This sphere represents everything that is beyond
everything that we can possibly know or come to know.
It represents everything beyond all we can conceive;
that which is beyond all knowing; that which is beyond
The gray mountains are the smoldering coals of man-made
cities. The erupting earth has incinerated these man-made
The red outline indicates that the remains are smoldering.
The monuments of man have been reduced to smoldering
coals, which will soon be ashes.
The obelisk of pure slate survives the eruption. There
is no inscription. The message is simple. "All will
be reduced to nothing as it has been in the past."
The obelisk was cut from solid stone after another great
purging and now returns to remind us that all that we
are witnessing has happened before. How many purges
ago was this marker carved, no one knows. What is known
is that the time has come for it to return as a reminder.
The five white birds are temporary survivors of the
great change. They prepare for a journey to the cocoon
from which they came. They traverse the sky gathering
their thoughts and reorienting like pigeons preparing
to journey home.
The full moon hangs in the blue sky. It is the nearest
planet in the physical universe. It is a constant; suspended
above the changing earth. The heavens are unaffected.
Only the earth is purged.
The black bird in the blue heavens symbolizes death
on earth. The shadow of death has consumed all that
lived in this place.
The small black spheres are the ashes of all that once
existed on the earth as well as the ashes of the earth
itself which have been propelled into the atmosphere.
It is a black rain of fire upon the earth. It will become
the gray ash blanket which will cover the once blue
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, the past is buried once
Far out in the universe, all is well. The grid of planets
and stars remains immune from this burning speck of
dust in the Cosmos.
I will soon depart for a new world which I will come
to call home.
A band of gypsies move on forever. No place is home,
save temporarily. The day blue sky colors the transient
universe. I move on.
At some time in the past or future I may return to this
grain of sand. I may pass it by if it is still a gray
desert or stay if is has again become green.
LONG AGO AND FAR
AWAY, TOMORROW COMES
The convulsing earth
explodes from within
and buries all
that has been
from the sacred
As red hot lava
flows to the
A tiny convulsion
in the universe
Our collective minds
will not admit
That our perfect
beings could be
we set fire
to an ant hill
Our conscious minds
do not admit
We have our God
to save us
And so he will
our bodies and not
our Mother Earth
They are expendable
We put our conscious minds
to sleep and rest our
spirits in organic
But one day
we shall perish
if not all at once
one by one
