            TESS IS OBLIGED, BECAUSE OF HER PHYSICAL BODY, TO HAVE A VERY BRIEF PERIOD OF rest at least once or twice a week and she must imbibe water a few times each day as well. These requirements are by request, and/or demand, from her physicalized body. In addition, her body requires her to have, at least, one recreational period a week or one period of non-work related activity. Tess would like to regard the required recreational period as an unnecessary one but she graciously honors her physicalized body’s request. Tess’ preference for this week, in regard to this once-a-week recreation period, is to spend an hour or so on NW 6th Street in downtown Portland, inside or around Union Station, a train station, and the Greyhound Bus terminal. Union Station in particular, on the west side of downtown, is a substantial historic building that has been beautifully restored on the inside. Between the train station and bus station, and the large/constant movement of lots of people, and the armies of cars/transport trucks in and around the area, Tess experiences, what she refers to as an ‘exquisite transitiveness’. She finds the area to be oddly reminiscent of the vibe of activity within the frequented coordinates of the dimensional reality in where she and the source family normally exists in.  Continue reading

Poetry is a different form of writing. In the context of a broad oversimplification, of the three basic forms of writing (there are more than three), that is, non-fiction, fiction, and poetry, each form can operate within its own unique modality. In general, non-fiction writing exists within a fact-based or research-based narrative structure, while fiction is a modal arc of explication or of storytelling, and finally poetry is an ephemeral snapshot of an idea or a person or a place or some compelling condition.
