baby blue


Ellsworth Kelly,  Yellow Blue, at the Rijksmuseum.

Dear Unborn,

I thought you might like some small introduction to human life.  Everything is reason and science, all of it.  Everything you might not like comes from it: toothpaste, surgeries, missiles, economic policy, borders.  Anything negative can be proven to be so and so to be necessary.  Anything you might like, anything good at all, is magic.  A winning lottery ticket, chocolate bars, love, beauty, kindly fairies.

So, there you have it, our essential dualism.

I am not a big fan either.  Still, we only do it this way because we choose to, so resist as much as you are able the pull of those two poles, and listen to this beautiful song of rebirth and regeneration; it's your song of the day!
