CAIRN/Villa des Amis/December 30, 2012/WSC

In the process of understanding and interpretation, part and whole are related in a circular way: in order to understand the whole, it is necessary to understand the parts, while to understand the parts it is necessary to have some comprehension of the whole.

Well Head Stone in CENOTAPH/Villa des Amis/December 2012
I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
And the nursling of the Sky;
     I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;
I change, but I cannot die.
 For after the rain when with never a stain
The pavilion of Heaven is bare,
        And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams
Build up the blue dome of air,
I silently laugh at my own cenotaph,
And out of the caverns of rain,
          Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb,
I arise and unbuild it again.

                                    ---Percy Bysshe Shelley
