You are really seeing for the first time.
The thought of death does not in the least disturb me, because I am firmly convinced that

become a universe to be entered and explored; drug users say they understand what Blake
meant by “the world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower”. Color seems

clearer; details usually overlooked become intensely interesting.

intelligently managed to provide support. (That was Timothy Leary.)

I was looking at my furniture as the pure aesthetic whose concern is only with forms and
their relationships with the field of vision or the picture space. But, as I looked, this

her body had “no longer existed in its usual limited form” and that now she was “one
