Dazed and disoriented, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm--into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires.
They rode on and the sun in the east flushed pale streaks of light and then a deeper run of color like blood seeping up in sudden reaches flaring planewise and where the earth drained up into the sky at the edge of creation the top of the sun rose out of nothing like the head of a great red phallus until it cleared the unseen rim and sat squat and pulsing and malevolent behind them.
It seems to me that for Darwin the pulsing of evolutionary rates was a strictly vertical phenomenon.
Since there is no slide in the projector, it's constantly trying to focus on something that isn't there. So, it results in this pulsing light. It's almost like breathing. Almost like it is alive.
This song of the waters is audible to every ear, but there is other music in these hills, by no means audible to all.... On a still night, whenthe campfire is low and the Pleiades have climbed over rimrocks, sit quietly and listen ... and think hard of everything you have seen andtried to understand. Then you may hear it a vast pulsing harmony its score inscribed on a thousand hills, its notes the lives and deaths ofplants and animals, its rhythms spanning the seconds and the centuries.
And blended pulsing life with lives long done,
Till Time seemed fiction, Past and Present one.
