Somewhere Between

From Hank, who seems to have become a friend and advisor to me, well after he died:

lifedance

the area dividing the brain and the soul
is affected in many ways by
experience---
some lose all mind and become soul:
insane.
some lose all soul and become mind:
intellectual.
some lose both and become:
accepted.

---Charles Bukowski in "what matters most is how well you walk through the fire"

what a great perfect title metaphor symbol for life.

is good to have dead people as your advisor - you don't have to pay them very much.
