I want to steal the words Romantic Landscape away from our bloody American history and give them new meaning "where vision is always arriving like a river." You may put your feet in and let the current tell you of mountains and hidden places. They should be words that work like "Jazz" and stretch to receive every new outpouring. Romantic Landscape should be true words that unite all of our visions and cast light on the unseen.
