The Ripley Scroll via
today I am thinking back to the Ripley Scroll
that I touched upon in a previous post
I realized that I am my own scroll,
a work of art,
I am, my life is, an "alchemical investigation",
and the Philosopher's Egg
is me

"The Ripley Scroll opens with a picture of the alchemist, 
‘the creator figure’. 
He holds the Philosopher’s Egg — 
‘the glass flask in which you make all your experiments. 
Its handles are inscribed, 
’You must make water of earth and earth of the ayr 
and ayr of the fyre and fyre of the earth’."

not just me,
you too.
each of us is our own scroll.
each of us is
the Philosopher's Egg
