In his Introduction Anthony Blake quotes Patrick deMare:
"Mind is between brains, not in brains".
Similarly, Music dwells in the space betweenthe notes,
not in the notes. Something like, the notes shape
the particular form of Silence that we recognise as music.

A practice begins with where we are, with what is possible for us.
We begin with the possible and move gradually towards what,
for the moment, seems to be impossible. We begin with small things.
Before doing something, we do nothing. Doing nothing is very hard:
it is a form of radical neutrality, a determining feature of the
accomplished artist. Doing nothing is to hold ourselves in place, in front
of an unfolding event that takes place through us, rather than because
of us (and sometimes despite us & our well-intentioned efforts).

Maintaining a public diary is also a process, and engagement with the
listening community is the stage where diarism comes to life: the arrogance,
foibles, pretensions, weaknesses and aspirations of Diarists are revealed
to public gaze and scrutiny; even the attempt to hide is revealed.
At this point, heat enters the process, and repercussions generated beyond
the purely personal.

Once there is noticing, then there is something noticed.
This something noticed then becomes available to reflection and,
with reflection, the experience may be digested. Once the experience
is digested, then something else becomes possible.
