music and image as an instantaneous process...
pulling back a swing, releasing it, and observing it gradually come to rest.
turning over an hourglass and watching the sand slowly run through to the bottom.
placing your feet by the sand in the ocean's edge and watching, feeling, and listening to the waves gradually bury them."
