    -------------------------------------------


    I don't know the next word. It eludes me. It hangs in front of me, unknown. I reach. I lose my footing. I am falling, reaching.

    Knowing the next word my steps would be firm, one word in front of another. I would have no fear of falling.

    But I can feel the next word inside me, unknown and insistent. It wants me, it wants me to let go, and for God's sake, enter the unknown. This is dangerous territory. There is no reason to go there. But this word, this unknown word, wants me to go there, do it, do it, for its own sake - it's like drinking saké with the Yakuza.

    The great gothic cathedrals were built by anonymous, built upwards higher and higher until they defied gravity, face to face with the unknown.

      The exploration of the mysterious and how simple just one word can find its way to be as complex as to find your metaphor of defying gravity. Something that seems to out of reach, as is that word, yet as those gothic cathedrals seem to me, beautiful and ornate. I love the comparisons and line of thought.

      When one stands up for self they are confronted by the conundrum of reality. A multifariously versatile and diverse opposition. It can be a difficult word to articulate, pronounce, or diction enunciate when we speak of this unknown insistence.
