from “Calligraphy as a long walk”, Judith Joseph

“How do we leave our mark? The path in Richard Long’s meadow will fill in
again, with grass.  Photographs will be enshrined in museums, lasting
as long as culture still values them. The feeling of step on earth,
finger on camera shutter button, pen on paper, brush on canvas:  these
take us out of time while simultaneously bringing us into the moment of
heightened sensation. We can’t know what after-image will survive our
time on earth, but we can experience some moments with joy and fullness.”
