I'm submitting this simple piece knowing it will be curated as part of a whole (an us). I usually create a complete individual universe not thinking it might coexist in a room next to something else. I guess I'm a product of the U.S. also.

PP's question upon seeing this piece perfectly sums up the most important thing on my mind:

"What's going on here?"

Love is holy because it is like grace---the worthiness of its object is never really what matters.

One evening when I was still living at Grand Street and Monroe, Isamu Noguchi came to visit me. There was nothing in the room (no furniture, no paintings). The floor was covered, wall to wall, with cocoa matting. The windows had no curtains, no drapes. Isamu Noguchi said, "An old shoe would look beautiful in this room."

John Cage - from "Indeterminacy"

thoughts- it feels like my thoughts are not my own. I am being fed like a crawl from a cosmic news channel in a world of me. I can no more collect my thoughts than count the flaps of a hummingbirds wings.

Sign Of The Times

There’s a song entitled “You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt that is being played a lot by pop music stations.

The first line is “My life is brilliant.” (repeat) and then “My love is pure.”

I always get a buzz, when I hear that first line.

I like to think of all those kids everywhere, singing “My life is brilliant.”

People need to realize this.

Saying it, is healthy.

Your life is brilliant.

You’re beautiful.

It’s true.

Inspired by the kind words of Pat and Sky I went back to the subway to work on more "collages." This is one from that very enjoyable session. I feel lucky to have happened into these artsparks.

Everyone should be as different as possible. There is nothing that is common to all of us except our creative urge. Every one of us has the urge to be creative in relation to our time--the time to which we belong may work out to be our thing in common.

-Hans Hofmann, 1950
