Linda: Determination – can we go far without it?
Ron: What kind of question is that?
Lis: Isn't determination a a recipe for danger? People who are determined often become blind to everything other than their mission.
Lex: Perhaps, but no greatness comes without ambition. Half-hearted measures seldom yield fruit.
Ron: This conversation is idiotic!
Lex: [ignoring Ron] Most aspirations for greatness are arrogant.
Lis: [ignoring Lex] I agree. In the end, we're but dust.
Ron: What kind of statement is that?

Determination - an art work by T Newfields
Don't hesitate to enter new waters
& touch the sea

Those waters will cleanse whatever clings to the body
& help you experience bouyancy

Why be polluted by imagining
there's anything solid you "own"?

You're a fish with two legs
in an ocean where many roam

Instead of mastering the art of
push-button production err
pseudo-intellectual sophistry
remember those clear currents
free of human manipulation
that flow forever deep . . .
