Windshield Rain drops Jan 8th 2020
A Winter Days Routine
Schedules have become very important. Diabetes, insulin where meals became a medical procedure. A new med replacing Insulin has freed me from having to eat instead of seeing, being with the late light.
Up at 7:30 or 9:30 mostly out here it is pretty dark at that time. Coffee, rate how I feel how it will effect my day. Messages read a sarcastic comment or two. Breakfast on good day 8:45 after second cup. There is no morning light in the winter. Daily plan 4 days Liz here marketing tasks I can’t do well. Inara after school once that is always a great day. At the market everyone knows my name like the Sundown years past. On a rare occasion when it is both warm and dry a bit of gardening on my beds and tiny prairie wild flowers to plant. Wednesday home alone a truffle with first coffee if the body and sky says in today. A breathing treatment with nebulizer. Dishes done creativity a plan for lunch, at months end [20th-] it becomes a math problem what’s here what I still have cash for lol. Elza’s kitchen always serves a heaping helping of humanity.
Then there are distractions music a rare splash of light of seeing if only out the windows or in my abode.
March 15, 2015 6:30 am. Boxes, Mike has shipped me my desktop a new table that today is much smaller ha ha.
Distractions I guess that makes scheduling so difficult. Creative moments from recent past 5 years. Time travel old images to peruse telling stories that lead to other stories.
Norwich 2002 a five mile walk led to this mailbox without a building. Fun. A five mile walk normal in 2002 new city no car reasonably healthy.
A kitchen converted to a studio here in Oly. Rarely used but it works and the results please me
Oh to have a muse, a monthly visit of eyes to speak with. Yes warm distractions, jazz, images, recent past…
The Muse a chance meeting in Paradise at lunch. Next morning the Studio on Bellevue and years of sessions. Hundreds of images many never printed or scanned. Reaching into my 80th decade they may be lost.
Working with a single person repeatedly you may think is repetitious boring. But no way each session was new with wonderful moments each a highlight. Thoughts about our work, hers and mine.
Here I show studio work with women, motion emotion, eyes. I’m asked why no men? Seinfeld said men’s bodies are utilitarian but that isn’t it at all men’s walls are thick rarely are their souls within reach. Women have been celebrated throughout time in art. Yes there was David but in my life he is almost impossible to find and I wonder if Leonardo worked with a camera what would David’s eyes say.
