Day 306: Winged words

image bbtb

My sister offered up this line of flight yesterday:

"H.D.’s mana words point to and put into play patterns of energy that move across contexts without significantly altering their form. For H.D., these processes are the engines of ongoingness: they link cultural fields, bind together social groups, tribes, or nations, and replicate across scales in material and social phenomena. Projection then, is a throwing forward of energy in the practice of poetics, psychoanalysis, cinema, mapping, and alchemy; the gift, a transfer of goods that create and maintains connections among groups, a relay, as H.D. thought of it, of power and peace; and science<, and unfolding sequence of principles by which we come to comprehend relations between processes, events, and beings in the world." -Adalaide Morris, How to Live/What do Do, 2003
