Fragments fall like leaves of mind,
Faces in time will fall too,
Cast into the fields of time,
Where new masks are assumed
fragments, scattered shards,
cutting shapes expressed of Soul,
Rooted fears find roots of peace,
Breaking free the mental mold
last we find the face,
That never has been blind,
As the silent core,
As the open heart,
As the face of true design.

Identity and perception, imagination and impression - these are the
fundamental elements that define who we are. The visible and invisible
qualities of our chosen or assumed identities express who we perceive
ourselves to be, and the impressions we make upon those around us.
Author, Maurice Nicoll, in his book "Living Time", described the idea that
we all make different impressions on different people at various times.
No one really sees the invisible sides of us. No one truly knows us in
the way we know ourselves. "We do not grasp that we are invisible.
We do not realize that we live in a world of invisible people. We do
not realize that life, before all other definitions of it, is a drama of the
visible and the invisible." "Casting Leaves" explores the identity
past the mask of persona, and the signs within seasons of transformation.
