David Hinton on ancient Chinese thought:
"Sea-mist drifts, ridge lines writhing and swelling, then eventually thins away. Valleys appear. Days pass into nights. Snows come. Seasons turn. Lives begin and end. Dynasties rise up and fall into ruin . . .
Vast and deep, everything and everywhere: existence is alive somehow—magically, mysteriously, inexplicably alive. Nothing holds still . . . all dynamic energy in perpetual transformation. This is the most fundamental nature of existence . . ."
I like ancient Chinese painting, and Hinton suggests that what it shows us is what he has described above. Much of what I'm working on right now is an attempt to show that too.
