It Gazes Back

The latest editorial from the wonderful Before March team, was sprung from an internalisation of Nietzsche’s quote “and if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you” – a phrase oft interpreted as an ominous darkness with the power to overcome oneself. On pondering darkness; empty, noiseless spaces, we may just find some nourishment. Even still, some overwhelming sense of possibility. An empty stage to choreograph as we choose. A kind of meditation, a blank canvas. There is a fullness to the emptiness in that it acts as an invitation to a way forward and to become more deeply rooted in who we are.

And so here, an ode to permeable voids & temporal abysses…
