"The future is dark ...

… which is the best thing a future can be, I think." Virginia Woolf


I have been immersed in Rebecca Solnit's writing for the past year or so,

dipping in

and out.

She has much to say

about the generative nature of darkness,

and traveling into it, eyes wide open

and hands extended --

to discover, break a fall, define space.

Fancifully, I am calling my near future/January

My Indigo Adventure.

The only thing I can identify,

emerging dimly from the shadows,

is blue.

I suspect other colors

and some shapes

and textures as well,

will materialize,

having germinated and grown


in the dark future.
