The consequence


the single story

 - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

painting problems:

on the singular canvas,
must reside
all possibilities
 points of view.

on the single canvas,
what is open
 becomes closed;
what is closed
becomes open.

on that one piece
of stretched fabric,
the authentic voice prevails
only if
the artist
has done the work beforehand;
has investigated all
to get to

the intricacies of

hallway in childhood home


and how I

capture it.

Buenos Aires

walking man

I take many pictures of older gentlemen
 walking away.

Not exactly sure why this intrigues me so.

...but I will keep at it
maybe share a few here...

In Argentina
older people are a part of the fabric of society.

They are out and about.

They move, they work, they participate.

Countries with old souls
don't seem to shun the elderly
the way we do in America.

I love the way real skin looks
as it lives a life.

as much as I love
the imperfect perfections of
an organically grown
piece of food.

Copenhagen 1940 and Painting with Thread; Lisa Kellner

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth,
 so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind.
 To make a deep physical path,
 we walk again and again.
 To make a deep mental path,
 we must think over and over
the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

-Henry David Thoreau
