The Intolerable Gift

Residues and traces of a journey... In the church of my childhood, after Mass was said, people used to gather in churchyards where they would be treated to a one- to two-hour-long verbal visualization of "revelations" as experienced by such prophets as Ezekiel, Elijah, or Jeremiah. The telling of the visions, by the preacher/narrator, was in a way a literal attempt to make visible, through performance, what was fundamentally invisĀ­ible.
