Divided yet connected. Split. Wide open yet enclosed.
The great American author F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, "The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless yet be determined to make them otherwise."
Nice. Easier said than done. I prefer to use charcoal and see two points of view at the same time.
