Mount Melleray

it was a haven for artists
sorta like the Fábrica Bhering
but make no mistake we all wanted the fruit of our toil
so it was intensely competitive
and i did my best to be first to fifteen
with a clinched fist as if foil fencing

motivated mainly by the prime principle
that advancement involves the intelligent utilization of resources
because as Prof. Ritchie explained
“the history of progress is the record of the gradual diminution of waste”

and even though we all wanted some form of recognition or respect
for how we were trying to innovate in our respective fields
i was quite aware that what would set us apart
was how each one of us was to run their own race

separately working on our different crafts
in this fertile and conducive to collaboration space
by all means it was not perfect
still, it was by far the best

    Absolutely. I like the idea that “the ultimate aim of all creativity is building”.
