A post for a blog is a post in a blog it is not





Mark Truscott, a writer whose work and critical writing I always enjoy and admire posted the following lovely line on his blog:



A thing is a hole in a thing it is not.



Beautiful and mindboggling Timbitonian. It seems the perfect kind of line to create variations on:


A hole is a thing in a hole it is not.

A thought is the absence of a thought it is not.

Consciousness is the absence of a consciousness it is not.

And further afield:

The ground gallops when there is a horse.

In terms of mindblogging, this Autologlyphs website has some totally fascinating word/text explorations, from ambigrams and autologlyphs to the image above for overhead project of a mobius strip text which when projected shows the words "mobius strip" three times, though it's only written one and a half times.

Thanks, Gary. The quote is Carl Andre's. The work in the image in the corner of my site is also his.
