"There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic. "

I WAS BORN ON THE 9th of JULY 2012

and then there was a muffled noise
something was moving
crawling painfully

the creased heavy linen sheets quivered
there was like a slow tearing sound
and the white womb opened

the shell emerged
but so full of life

and the butterfly whispered:
"that's great, you've done the most difficult part"
