I heard, “It’s time to get to work, Boy.”
Begin #1A-B, May 2015.
Anaximander’s theory of the perpetual coming to be and
passing away will be made as The Passing Away and The Coming
[I’ve been thinking of this for weeks]
This, the left side (1A, May 2015), is the passing away…
So, I told my Master, “See, I did.”

Of the diptych #1A-B, May 2015,
begin the right side, #1B, May2015,
“The coming to be”.
Is it still the diptych format, or
has this painting for the right side already become a thing in
itself? It became an egg in fertilization.
May 26, Montréal studio night.
Yes, it’s the coming to be. Yes, painting for me has been
often like reading the tea leaves in the bottom of the cup (but
now we use tea bags).

Final touches on the right side of #1A-B, May 2015.
The left side, “Passing away,” and the
right side, “Coming to be” sure don’t like each other. All the
more reason they must stay together with “Coming to be” on the
right because the egg of the “could be” is always blossoming
If only I knew now for me.
May 30, 2015. Montréal, on waking.
The wind blows, they come, they go. And in one hundred
every one of us billions today will have come and gone.
