Bauhaus by Night: Untitled (Night View of Trees and Streetlamp, Burgkühnauer Allee, Dessau, 1928.From The Paris Review.

Octavio Paz. Today in the river.
I have to see that there is a space between thoughts. A void that is reality, and I need to remain as long as possible in this space. Then another kind of thinking appears, clear and intelligent, a thought of another level, another dimension.
I would like to live like a river flows, carried by the surprise of its own unfolding.
