In Temenos #9: The Writer I explore the world of the poet, the novelist, the worker in words. The cubist approach---with the dynamic interplay of linear rhythms---suggests the flurry of activity and the antic mind of the wordsmith. The stark value contrasts add to the drama. While many writers have their own favorite physical places to do their work---an old desk in the attic, a comfortable end of a couch, or a café bustling with the clatter of existence in the background---the ultimate temenos for the writer is this mind-space where convincing characters, intriguing plots, and timeless contemplation all find their origin.
