may we all be heard
words are bells
let them ring!

In one room,we list all causes and effects
in another,we pray to unseen ,unknown forces
Another room is for meditation
More are warrens for writers
who scribe impossible unpublishable manuscripts
Philosophers inhabit another room-small but vocal
Musicians practice in other rooms,rehearsing harmonies
Art and sculpture also have rooms here,and daub and build imaginary architectures
A room is kept for mountains,rivers,great plains
rainforests,swamps and beaches
Without them,there may be no speech sufficient to describe
birds,bees,flowers,poetry or song-all of which demand separate rooms
One room is always kept empty-this is BELIEF
By giving space to both doubt and certainty (more,other rooms)
we also need to cater for that which has no space as yet
faiths yet to be validated via physical phenomenae
So long as we leave room for growth,this mansion 
can mean more than Ark or Babel,myth or legend.
There is always more to build upon our house-
extensions,demolitions of obselete designs and wobbly foundations
It is a dynamic design,in process and in flow
So long as we do not stop
at what we do not yet know.
