This week I have been immersed in the poetry of Etel Adnan. More specifically Sea and Fog published in 2012. There is a memorable line…
” Only in the fog do I feel complete.”
I think I know what she means, something to do with the space and freedom needed for mystery and imagination. When things are too clear the possibilities are reduced.
When talking about painting she feels that what her brush produces is more real than the world she sees…”it gives us the essence of it, it’s substance and core.”
