conversation between the owl and the crane:  

(beats under my thoughts)

says the owl: hey, what are you up to?

says the crane: who, me?

says the owl: yeah, …

says the crane: well, listen, my friend,… (and he starts telling a very old story) It’s all about the road you are following, and how you think you will get there, for example, me, I’m just a bird, and you are just a bird, but still we dream of diving into deep cold seas, …

says the owl: see no problem in that, …

says the crane: still, there’s one thing I got to tell you, It’s about the driving wheel and who’s behind it,… you know Ken Kesey?

says the owl: know no bird of that name…

says the crane: well,… don’t know much about him either, but there’s one thing… ( he cannot stop laughing) each time he had to turn right, he chose for left, and when he’d choose left, he turned right,… at the end he didn’t know where he was going, – called that ‘furthur’,… so for us to succeed, we got to keep on jumping of high rocks, or how you call it, by all means find a way to get away, and then maybe one day,…

oh, I get it, says the owl: it’s all about the practice and how we are going to get enough of that,…

says the crane:  indeed, for us to succeed, we have to  practice, that means: embrace rules and structures, discipline,…  take care of each other,… to dive deeper, dive deeper…

says the owl: you mean, we ‘re not gone die?

says the crane: …, be aware of each other, and soon you’ll find us jumping of high rocks into deep cold seas,… be aware, and you ‘ll see…

“The answer is never the answer. What’s really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you’ll always be seeking. I’ve never seen anybody really find the answer– they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.”
