Author's Note

  At the end of a sentence, the reader sums up the words. At the end of a paragraph, the reader sums up the sentences. At the end of the chapter, the reader sums up the paragraphs, and at the end of the book, the reader sums up the chapters. Something like an adding machine, but in this case, summing units of words and the meaning they carry, not numbers.  This conventional method of writing, interferes with the fluid or streaming method in which most of these compositions were written. This interference was minimized by eliminating "periods" at the end of the paragraphs. Within paragraphs, "periods" are used as language stops for sentences, but also for phrases, or a single word. In addition, to minimizing language stops, time notation is also used. A comma corresponds to about a one'second pause, a two dot ellipsis corresponds to a two'second pause, and a three'dot ellipsis..a three'second pause. Reading this material is something like listening to music. One listens without thinking about it; one reads without thinking about it to allow the reader to feel the flow of words as their meaning streams through the composition, like feeling the motif of music as it flows through its composition. The forms used for many of the compositions were "unwittingly" inspired from the general form used in theme development used in symphonic composition; namely, the quadripart symphony, the tone poem, the ballad, the rhapsody, and fugue.

 I termed this composition method, Ars Soliloquy, which requires of the reader, like a  listener, or viewer of any art using time as medium, an 'indefinite attention span.'
