Three truths of one situation (August, October, February)

Just unattainable is real.

If language leads us away from experience, how do we get there? How do we find the shape of searching itself? A style which doesn’t know yet for itself how it is shaped and heard, before it recognizes its senses?

Only through distanced words, can we evoke (a)more. Love is an experience of the world or situation and we can get there with the awareness that it exists Other. Not a relationship, but the production of truth. They are always two: air ( ) mountain, fire ( ) ash.., which produce the truth — Unattainability.
