Capturing Transformations

In the beginning

there was a bare room

which planted the seed of an idea

into heart of the one who entered it

and could see that the emptiness was full of potential

to make a dream come true

but how to make the ideal become real…



Everything you see starts somewhere unseen

and as time passes

it takes shape

gradually making itself visible

bit by bit

layer by layer



until one day

all the bits

all the layers

come together…

that day is still far away

but it has progressed

and the transformation

has been captured



This is from a project Steve is working on

the movie is made from stills taken during his build

of a scale model track

of our home and the surrounding countryside


“In my darkest night,
when the moon was covered
and I roamed through wreckage,
a nimbus-clouded voice
directed me:
“Live in the layers,
not on the litter.”
Though I lack the art
to decipher it,
no doubt the next chapter
in my book of transformations
is already written.
I am not done with my changes.”
― Stanley Kunitz, The Collected Poems

  1. AHH so wonderful. I have wondered about you even though I have been away myself for a long time. (am reading posts from you in reverse order if there have been more I’ve missed.)
    Your words so aptly describe an amazing process we all go through but maybe don’t think abut.
