Take Your Pick

I have three choices: I can add something, take something away, or do nothing.

Painters add or remove pigment; potters add or remove clay; choreographers add or remove movement; photographers and digital artists add or remove light; music composers add or remove sound; writers add or remove words. At times the action is irreversible, unalterable, final.

When I consider any of my actions, I give or take, for doing nothing leaves me only as witness.
