Absence is Complete, hour 23

Like music
Sometimes the space between the beat
Contains the rhythm

A cup only functions
When it is empty

A box filled
Is just a cube

Without guidance
Without structure
A movement becomes a mob
A garden tangled overgrowth

To order is not to impose
But to maintain and direct

To govern is not to control
But to facilitate progress

Never forget
