I no longer have the first diagram I did of Psalm 1. I remember being struck by the effect one could make of light at the centre if one reversed the gradient of two adjacent nodes. It was almost by accident that I began with individual words in each node.
I don't recall how I first encountered the idea of shape in text that was so different from English rhythm and rhyme.In memory of that first diagram, I have reconstructed its shape from Psalm 1 - without the words. If you click either image, it will become one piece. Compare the shape with Psalm 1 as it is now.
