I want to believe in aspiring.

That endeavor yields being, evinces the assertion of life and circumvents the caprice of society and culture. 

That art is the vessel and fanfare of humanity; it rejects definition and gestures in us as we gesture in ourselves. 

Meaning unfolds in our passage and passing. 

Wherein, we are ever beginning, emerging through the flux of our intimacy. 

In closeness we dissolve, and being so, create through our becoming.
