our own heart is our temple

"There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple..."

At this morning's meeting of the new Artist's Association Anguilla is creating, I met a young architect conveying a sense of strength of character and knowledge of his profession- it's almost as if his words describing the importance of trained architects were conveying a higher meaning, able to rock people into consciousness.
An educated revolutionary mind for this small country, able to effect change.

Matt, the young architect, was talking about rising the degree of awareness of quality on this island.
I mentioned it was the toughest part. How do you generate an awareness where there is seemingly no need for it?
How do you interest people about something they have no sense of acknowledgment?
Matt said he is preparing a coup. I sincerely wish him success with it!
