setting up

today I will set up the studio for work again......finishing the light room took most of my time lately.....
I have to pack up most of my work in the next few weeks in anticipation of selling the house, move everything to the garage in the meantime.....

Light Room

This is the light room project......a 360 degree image created within the context of a single room.

A couple of views.......

As simple as things seem sometimes
Watching the end of the world
Pretending nothing is wrong
Loosening the strings on a

Ferris wheel spins under the spell
Cherished for its completeness
Situated by the edge of a story
I wish the rain would come

Trouble cannot be swept
Beneath the corridors of indifference
Like a play without words
Acted out in pantomime

Spirits shake up the dreary accord
Perchance to dream, only in stereo
Sheltered she accommodates passion
With heather and sorrow

Chastened to continue the amplitude
Set forth under the conditions of separation
Pliable taking shape to retribution
She comforts unconditionally

I leave the table
Set in a country of unknown origin
Troubled by her outrage
As I walk slowly towards danger

With armor and vocabulary
Presence and adversity
Polarized by conditions
Satisfied without opportunity

A hat full of feathers
Cannot want any more
Spiraling towards you
I sing of tomorrow

Last I will leave you
Never I will leave you
I am here


360 degrees.

images from the "lightroom" a 360 degree image where you enter the space and are surrounded by the image......
today I worked on the floor......I will encase the floor pieces in plexi and board so that visitors can walk through the space.....possibly put a paper sculpture in the central area where the light fixture is.,

?The lesson

Three short poems

The first poem is called the book.
Pages open
The second poem is called the story
She laughed
He cried

The third poem is called the lesson.

You think I can forget you
Like a page in a book
Discarded blowing away in the wind

Turning up in a narrow alleyway
Found by a child who sees the word love
Gives it to his godmother

Who once stopped a true love in its tracks
Impossible she said
You are beneath me

She sings about him sometimes
In the desolation of her small room
With the single light glaring

I cannot forget you
Your song is in my head

Your story is in my heart.

Come play with me on the far side of the river
Copper plate oceans and stories of wisdom
High above the dance of light
Washes across gentle hands in the surf

All the while the children grow out of their shoes
Their socks
Their pajamas
Wondering if it will ever stop

A crack in the sidewalk
Descending into the infrastructure
Below the surface
Men toil in reverence to their creator

Who holds onto their memories
Like a retaliation for past transgressions
Vindictive in a most
Benevolent way.

Lost in translation
She motions me to return
To her good graces, her benevolence
Shattered by disolusionment and envy

I am covered in grief
Sheltered from the pain self inflicted
A weapon more deadly than sin
Vibrating into the core of desire.

Swirling water creates a tunnel
I can see downward to the underworld
Above me a luminous sky
Filled with joyous possibility

For you know I cannot forget you
Radiant smile a luscious freedom
As if a dance had begun

Between sun, sea, and air.

last night really intense I was in a room with others and started floating......sitting cross legged - tried to talk to the others but the words came out garbled......

kind of went a couple of feet higher......intended it........worked on the speech part.......finally was able to talk and the others noticed........came down slowly.......

So I just returned from Ecuador.  I went to see a Shaman about a soul, mine.  I went to try to get rid of
so many negative thoughts and what I thought to be a negative direction my life was heading in.

I am back, trying to ply a way forward which is filled with great possibility and hope.  I am thinking of what I can do to prevent the negative crap from creeping back in, the cynicism and all that goes with it.  It is funny, I really have no idea what to do next.  I hope that I put myself on a positive path and things will just kind of present themselves as I go.

We shall see.......I will keep you posted, kind reader.
