The irrepressible revolutionist

[Imagination] is the irrepressible revolutionist.*
(Wallace Stevens)

when air travels to our lungs we are given a voice that defines whoo we are**
(Charlotte Bosseaux)

Confession is good for the soul, it is said: confession that claims the fullness of who we are and who we can be.

Communion follows, when we allow ourselves to be this person and to welcome others as their confessed selves.

Commission, then, is our understanding of what we must do when imagination and reality meet.

When our lives contain these three elements, or movements, we are revolutionists.

(*From Wallace Stevens’ The Necessary Angel.)
(**From Charlotte Bosseaux’s Dubbing: Film and Performance.)
