Torben Ulrich's note:
6. See notes 4 and 5. Additionally, there's a text here (unlike 4 and 5) speaking of memory and awareness, two notions easily getting in the way of each other. Memory may mean a full house, windows (of senses, sensibilities) curtained or closed by piles of storage, files of notations (identity, rank, scores), lingering ambitions, old bandages, unhealed wounds etc. Leaving less or little space for heightened attention, for situation actually at hand.
Who's there (asks the text)? Maybe no-who: fully attentive, radiant awareness not in need of an owner.


(Number refers to this note, not the work's reference number. These notes can be read on their own and also as an ensemble, or set of concentric circles that can be read both from outside in and inside out. See the full Notes on Balligraphies.)
