Feel the skin on things vibrate. Attune
yourself. Close your eyes. Hum.
Each beat of the world’s pulse demands
only that you feel it. No thoughts.
Just the single syllable: Yes ...

    You know this image is powerful. Nothing I could add would enhance this in any way. However, the strength of the Sullivan verse take this somewhere else. The ability to 'hear' the words that tell the image story as you translate it is a gift. This is an amazing example of that strength.

    I am not familiar with Sullivan but plan on correcting that oversight today.
