I still can't get the developed images to transfer

so we amble through the pre
searching for a voice

at first it just gets more and more
tangled and dark

 we finally find a small light

 we find one small voice

ad infinatum

it just goes on and on. ad infinitum.
there is a bunch of writing too.
too boring to photograph.

I'll try to try to take selected pictures tomorrow
just to provide a better sense of the thing.

inside and outside

these are a few pictures of the book Guthrie made and I filled.

this next one is some page in the book

and just another page at the beginning...

and this is the cover that guthrie put on it

and here she is now one massive book

and this is the back of it

the title page...

hey I'll put up some more pages next time...I can see it is hopeless.  
I'm just trying to give you a sense of it.

the summit

Oh it is definitely weird that way any painting gets made...there is never an image
 in one's mind
and then you produce it, replicate it..
Even if it is crummy, ugly or just plain stupid,
you must first
make it ugly.

get out of jail

get out of jail and be free...then one can and must face oneself, eventually.  
the jail can be anything -any addiction
any dishonesty
any ruse fabrication lies 
to oneself to others

time -ex

One strange thing that happens
when you are older
is that you feel time
passing by 
saying goodbye to you
-that was your life

the moon and me

I'm finally back.  Man I worked on that darn book for a long time.  -a long time. a new focus.
a new scale. a new process.  It was hard. writing is always hard.  and working on that strange new scale was hard.  coming up with 300 or so drawings in a month of this was hard.

and thinking is hard.  I'm glad I'm done, or almost done.  one more story.  one more quote.
then I will be at peace with just the moon and me.

the receptacle

the artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place:  from the sky,
from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape,
from a spider's web.  -picasso
