And They all still look just fine to me
They all look just fine
Lifted vision
as high as eyes can see
To lock thy gaze,
upon the ghoul
I have no answers for you here
Don't you see,
I'm just a fool?

Another attempt
To tame the soul
Before I end up
A lifeless ghoul
Another attempt
To make it through
To the end,
I hope we do
It's done me no favors
Again and again
I'm not sure hope
in the end,
Can bring me back
Around the bend
To find myself
Waiting there
Like a vampire sulking
in its lair
Eternal life is
eternal despair
For the pain is always
Waiting there

No, sometimes a beenie maybe or a cap.

Even nothing, is something.
If one is to live balanced with expectations, then one must learn to appreciate the negative as well, to respect darkness in its own home.

All smoke fades, as do all delicate mirrors shatter.

"My ancestors are smiling on me, Imperials. Can you say the same?"

"Science Fiction today ~ Science Fact tomorrow"

Change is inevitable, it can only be delayed or sped up. Choose wisely.

Truth is pain, and pain is gain.

Mowk's artmark

Bronze hand casts a bronze shadow .gif


That my left hand. Finger prints cast in bronze. All the art I had in that show mysteriously left the state with the owner of the studio the showing was in. I prefer now to create art that is not so easily stolen. My life. To this day I have no idea where it ended up. For all I know it's resting in some landfill.

Shit I've got all kinds of crap like that laying around. But that was my last show as an artist.

It does not fit my imaginative picture of You.
I imagined You as older and less 'real'. Whatever that means, and one picture really is worth a thousand words.My imagination is mostly and primarily virtual, and filtered in brazen yet washed pastels with a simotenios focus on contrast.

Been in the old country, infatuated in Kerouac, especially 'Lonely Traveler' and 'Sartoru in Paris' , but recently came upon an unread collection I would like to share , will do in a New York minute.

Paint it in the color of a Dr.Sax.


But later.


About the hand, had one done would like to send it, but how to print out a photograph within these realms? Given by an ex will find a way.

I am older now. Imagine shorter hair; turned grey, a much trimmer beard, also quite grey, wrinkles and a Mister Rogers style of attire, and yes, less real. Had to come to a lot of compromises since then. That was back in the days when I still painted. The year was back in 95.

Went commercial, Advertising, and ended up doing bullshit stuff like this. Regular pay checks, and sold my soul to the man.

Baby.gif


The only thing I've painted since then is rooms in my house. Computers took over and I've fallen so out of practice. It's been quite a while ago that I considered myself an artist.

meaning it is for anyone to post whatever they feel is art, because if it makes you feel something,


I didn't quit. That's just the story I told myself all these years.
I missed a dead line for a big client, artists block, drove me nuts, and never got hired for another job again. My bounce back job was a greens keeper at a golf course. And my sister wants to rehabilitate me.

back to the present and Art x Art.

Sort of same story with a twist. It is different, cause the great reversal is taking place not on the actual, but the potential(energy) front, has been eclipsed by an order,
of,
at least 10 to 100,
Stakes higher, much,
Daunting, but can handle the realism
Without going dada,
But its close very close.
Old grandad indulgence and a dream
Well an auditory one, by Mr.Polanyi self
Assuring,(old grandad is a survival , by certain measure);
That there is a large measure of simulation, in this.(stimulation)
Went by a Tmobile store to startup new phone
Asked guy about upgrades and he says my phone is already old, although it is merely one year old.

So asked him whether at present trend in 25 years how advanced intelligence can evolve into ,
He says maybe it will be in the mind, sort of virtual phone, laughed and says that certainly he may be around, but I don't know it would be the case with me.

Reversal, potential & polarity


Why?

Because it is an effort to reboot one dimensionality.

Trump needs more funny bone resilience.

Or less, lot less. Otherwise, instead of Emmy he may get trumped.

Reagan was better, but he was typed for serious stuff like GE spokesperson, potential difference carried other overtones.

Progress is our most important product.
