This Wave is not produced by a wind.Hardly even a wake .It seems to raise from an otherwise calm lake surface. To my feeling there is something scary about this ,something of Aristotle's celebrous quote from Agathon:"It is probable that something happens against probability". (See my recent "Gegen Null.Eine mathematische phantasie."Secession Verlag 2011, Ch."Über eine Verführung durch die Erzählung")
But this is also a pictograph for the way an idea,a creative impulse, makes its way from God knows what abysses and breaks into the surface.
What lake ? The endless lake of the mind.Or the lake Stora Nadden in Västmanland,my childhood lake where I learned how to row and tried to sail with a rather unreliable rig of my own construction. The premontory in the background is easily recognizable as Hillersberget.

  1. Underbar betraktelse över vattnets rörelse!

    Och TACK från hjärtat för poesi och bröd i kvällens Babel.
