Passing Through

"We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another.

Jazz Singer

Acrylics on stretched primed canvas

"When Songs Repeat:

An evening breeze,
Lazy with attitude
Rolled quietly
Over tree tops,
While music runs thick
Like spiced gumbo,
Making the air
Smell of jazz.

A pearl covered
Worn harmonica,
Like the frayed collar
Or a work shirt
Breathed with intention,
Gasping at notes,
Pulling them hard
Into blended sounds.

A man with a guitar
Half humming words
And speaking others,
Brushed his strings
While his foot slapped
Dirt into dust
And smiled rightly
Like a Sunday sermon."

Big Woods

Oils on primed canvas board

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love."
Neil Gaiman

Serenity

Oils on stretched primed canvas

"I am lonely, yet not everybody will do. I don't know why, some people fill the gaps and others emphasize my loneliness. In reality those who satisfy me are those who simply allow me to live with my ''idea of them."

Forgotten Footbridge

Oils on stretched primed canvas

"All we have to believe with is our senses, the tools we use to perceive the world: our sight, our touch, our memory. If they lie to us, then nothing can be trusted. And even if we do not believe, then still we cannot travel in any other way than the road our senses show us; and we must walk that road to the end."
Neil Gaiman
