A net works to catch you up. This network keeps you caught up. The net work is all of this that you’ve caught, built upon – that is to say: brought up.
This is an accumulation of recently assembled structures, of images, of objects. They are trying to talk about domesticity, sentimentality and desire. They are having a conversation amongst themselves about the way things connect. They want to be important and they need each other. They have been called to come here, to stay put, to gather.

Is this movement cyclical? Another season, window, state of being... stasis comes and goes again and again. Holding patterns. We would hold only those things that we want to keep, if we could. We take it all anyways, any and all of it. We are moved, unsteady. Move the furniture around again. These things may be recuperative, if you will. Some things could mean only themselves, or what you will. Doubled up, this gathering in the folds. Hung up here on the tip of this changing. You always mean to become what you will be, and maybe this movement... how about it?
