The "Components of Passage" were not pre-conceived. Only upon seeing them emerge and seek definition ... disquieting ... not easy to accommodate ... was I reminded that existence is the medium through which every aspect of $elf is transformed. Only upon seeing them did I learn that_ they're about the tenuousness of material existence, the transitory nature of form, the dichotomy between our physical and spiritual aspects, and fate, the fall of the fabric. Both the process and the subject matter involve fate. Only upon seeing them did I understand that they're about transition, transformation, presence/absence, timelessness/immediacy, what is found, lost, extant, relinquished - as we pass along the way.
