To One Eye Love

Cover foto by Smith

Crisis Chronicles Press has chosen another of my fotos to cover a poetry chapbook: I Can Live with Death by David B. McCoy. This makes 11 front and 2 back cover fotos for CCP’s 28 publications.

Perfect foto for the title.

And speaking of life and death, per the doctrine of “dependent origination” or “dependent arising” (via Lady via Wikipedia via Buddha):

The Twelve Nidanas

With Ignorance as condition, Mental Formations arise
With Mental Formations as condition, Consciousness arises
With Consciousness as condition, Mind and Matter arise
With Mind and Matter as condition, Sense Gates arise
With Sense Gates as condition, Contact arises
With Contact as condition, Feeling arises
With Feeling as condition, Craving arises
With Craving as condition, Clinging arises
With Clinging as condition, Becoming arises
With Becoming as a condition, Birth arises
With Birth as condition, Aging and Dying arise

Seems a long hard way to go, what with this all being built on an initial foundation of ignorance.

How did we get from 4 virtues + 3 graces to 7 sins?

To One Eye Love

I ‘n I

Seven sins:

Four virtues:

Three graces:

The am my aim
The all my am
