To seek a sweet deep silence. A life yet to be created, pseudo morphically; an existence within an existence. Still it must be late to the world around although not a part of it. There is no choice but to carve and build and create in the wilderness - the ideal of the Karma yogin.
-George Nakashima, 1945
