form. emptiness / 色. 空
on and off, it has been on my mind
ever since that experienced first-hand encounter
in a guangzhou park many years ago.
it is truly the most meaningful response
to the form and emptiness of the buddhist.
everything from absence to presence, and from presence to absence.
form itself is emptiness. emptiness itself is form.
it is not just its history and humanity,
it is not just its execution and environmentalism,
it is not just the zen-like meditation quality of its practice.
