‘Plant a question in a garden: define it without preventing it from flowering.
Take it literally; take it allegorically; take it as a preface; take it as a mystery to decode. Compose responses that do not annihilate the question’s delicate ecology; avoid the answer that kills it, and seek the response that disarms and multiplies it.
One method is this: let somebody else answer, and from a place of unknowing: namely, the past. A question does not express a lack, but a creative force: propose, disarm, multiply. This is a form of escape. From what are we escaping? I will leave that as a question’.
