Lizabeth Yandel: “Language is the melody we sing into the soundscape of the universe, to bounce off the dark planets as they roll, the stars as they spin, fall, and burn, and it returns to us, a circular pulsing rhythm, to assure us we exist. Perhaps these writings are an attempt at arranging chaos amid a frantically progressing technology and a godless, displaced, and distracted generation.” (web)
