writing again

I have been working on a new group of poems- making an "art-book" with
short poems on paper- and art:  So far I've written about ten poems but only a few I know will be in the book...


there are small moments
that illuminate our lives
cool milky stars
tinsel darkness

that poem resonates for me (not to brag but... it has been a long time since I've written stuff I really like every time I read it- usually i rewrite the crap out of it- and then there is nothing left..)
another one....

The Mother

I rock you and
sorrow finally fades
from your face

your eyes hold me
and my heart is free
of feeling guilty for everything
I did and did not do

and the paintings that might go with these or might not-- this is just in process
a news letter from the gallery- if you are interested in getting one let me know!

I had written about this theme before- this idea that we limit ourselves with psychological and geographical borders- but now with the refugee crisis it appears nothing has changed after-all.
this one is titled Asylum:

pushing my luck

The November show explores luck's power and influence on life.  A couple years ago, I was reading Notebooks- and simple as it is, it took half-a-century to suddenly dawn on me that, that mysterious chain of events that transpired throughout history made this present. And had one thing been different, one miniscule bit of star-dust drifted off and everything would be different to a degree related to the velocity of the change.  I am certain people are thinking i am trite with all this- but it's like unwrapping a gift after the others are already done.

Luck- the lucky duck and the odd ducks are themes of this show- though most in very abstract forms.
I am not being fatalistic here; our ability to be in the present is amazing.  If you read this- come to the NOv. 6 show and check it out.  David will again be playing music too!
