Origin

"the predicate* of bright origin"

— A phrase of Wallace Stevens quoted here yesterday

One origin, noted here on January 25

This commemorated the death of noted discographer Brian Rust.
Rust appears in today's New York Times  obituary index—

Also in today's obituaries: artist Alan Uglow, who reportedly died on January 20.

A link ("Noland") from this journal on that date leads to… a geometric origin.

“At the still point,
there the dance is.”
— T. S. Eliot

What Stevens's "predicate" is, I do not know.
Eliot's predicate would seem to be "still."

on the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels last year.

"Unity of the Proposition" at Wikipedia and at Oxford University Press.
