There are seven notes in the Western musical scale, where the eighth step is the return to the ONE... only this time an octave up, one step above the natural order. Similarly, the 8th day of the week is a return to the beginning; a renewal. This sketch features the Octagon and is an exploration of “8” (and its divisors of 1, 2 and 4). 8 is a new dawn, a modulation upward. It is the completion of a former stage and a leveling up.
"I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations."
George Bernard Shaw
"We are one, after all, you and I, together we suffer, together exist and forever will recreate each other." - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
