David Jones, artist and poet (1895-1974) begins his PREFACE TO THE ANATHEMATA :

'I have made a heap of all that I could find.' (1) So wrote Nennius, or whoever composed the introductory matter to Historia Brittonum. He speaks of an 'inward wound' which was caused by the fear that certain things dear to him 'should be like smoke dissipated'. Further, he says, 'not trusting my own learning, which is none at all, but partly from writings and monuments of the ancient inhabitants of Britain, partly from the annals of the Romans and the chronicles of the sacred fathers, Isidore, Hieronymous, Prosper, Eusebius and from the histories of the Scots and Saxons although our enemies . . . I have lispingly put together this . . . about past transactions, that [this material] might not be trodden under foot'. (2)

(1) The actual words are coacervavi omne quod inveni, and occur in Prologue 2 to the Historia.
(2) Quoted from the translation of Prologue 1. See The Works of Gildas and Nennius, J.A.Giles, London 1841.

I called it :

One night, I couldn't get any action after the concert.
I went back to my hotel by myself.
I made some coffee and took out the music I'd been working on.
A piece for voice and small ensemble.
I called it :
I Have Seen The Pleated Gazelle.
Introduction to The Pleated Gazelle

  Theatre of the Actors of Regard  
I later observed on that 1865 page of

below the initials F.Z.

the following text of TAR : 

Si son regard noyé dans mon regard 

me laissait lire au fond de son âme :
Je t'aime!             

     Theatre of the Actors of Regard  
One night, I couldn't avoid the TAR.

I went back to the studio by myself.

I made some tea and took out the page I'd been working on.

A piece for text and TAR ensemble.
I called it :

A Person Looks At A Work Of Art/
someone looks at something...
