The silence in which the body, senses, the instincts, are more alert, more powerful, more sensitized, live a more richly perfumed and intoxication life, instead of transmuting into thoughts, words, into exquisite abstractions, mathematics of emotion in place of violent impact, the volcanic eruptions of fever, lust and delight.”

“I began to see that thinking of him as a beekeeper was actually quite the wrong expression of this man.  He did far more than simply keep bees; somehow, I felt that he was of them.  Certainly the bees knew and respected him.  He was, I was to learn, a Bee Master—an artist working with living form.”  –Simon Buxton
