I'm reminded of these beautiful words from Lawrence Weschler last year:

Essentially, the hyper-slow-motion cinematic capture of a lightning bolt in the process of erupting into being. However, the more appropriate metaphor might be: in the process of searching and probing and dallying and circling back and losing itself and finding itself elsewhere only to peter out anew and then branching off again, probing further, until it finally makes contact with ground, with Ground Zero as it were, at which point it rebounds into brilliant sudden being (all in a fraction of a fraction of a second) ...

... like nothing so much, it occurs to me, as the path this very video took as it coursed through the Internet, finally finding its way to your eyes ...

... where it then was instantaneously converted into another electric charge and went surging and careering through your brain, finally erupting to the astounded consciousness you are experiencing right now.~Lawrence Weschler

Abe's Axe is a symbol. Like the firey wand of Hermes, it is the conduit for bringing into action manifestations from the creative imagination. He is not killing vampires so much as freeing living dead men. The great emancipator would like to bring you into the 4th dimension of consciousness. He is going to have to kill you to do this, though. Or, actually, just annihilate your ego to transport you. In this instance, his axe is the craft. A craft is both a transport and a skill. The magician's wand is both. A pen can be mightier than the sword. What's your craft? Use your symbol well. . .
