“My first Vision of Light.”
– Blake, “To Thomas Butts”

From the root BHA, to shine, light, bright, is derived our epiphany and theophany, and photo.

Epiphany: a revelatory manifestation of a divine being,
Theophany: a divine manifestation.

My belief is that if you can so See our mothers – our first vision of light – then we will so See all.

All Art, all Vision,
to Aspire to their Phanic.
