Juried Show: May 14!

"Antelope 1" (right)














The Jury said Yes! Three of my images will be featured--en large, on the (Samuel Adams) Brewery walls--in the upcoming JPAC "Art Projections" show in Boston the evening of May 14, 2016.  If you find yourself in the area, come on down. 

This is a rare, special opportunity to "enter" Antelope Canyon, a sacred and exquisite "slot" canyon (where two of the three images were shot) in the Navajo territory of Northern Arizona.  This will be the first-ever public viewing of these images, and perhaps the only viewing in this fashion: larger-than-life sized.  My Artist's Statement will tell you a little more about my part in the show.   And you 
can read more about the whole event here.

There will be music, food and drink from local establishments, and the selected local artists' work on display, both projected (outdoors) and some hung (indoors). It promises to be a wonderful event, and I hope to see you there!

Alive and Well

I have been too many months away from this column:  silent, by all appearances.  First because I was intent on at last finishing a book that I have been writing for some time now.  I was going to post in April to explain, to say, "I'm here, but I'm giving all my writing time and focus to this book project..." and then, subsequently, announce it official birth:  "ta dah!"  But then my mother, who had been in recent years inching closer to the end of her life, started her dying process in earnest.  The book project--yet again--got sidelined.  I had a more urgent demand on my focus, time and energy, psychic and otherwise. 
 

My mother lifted off in mid-July.  We celebrated her at a Funeral Mass on July 31.  Since then, I have been, in a word, recovering.  Restoring. 

I regret having been away so long.  But here I am, back again, and happily so.  Of course, I never left, really:  life is for living.  The journey along Love's Freeway continues whether or not I am writing about it. 

It has been a full, rich, beautiful, challenging, and life-changing year.  To share none of it 'in actual time' feels wrong.  So I've chosen to share from the silent months belatedly, with a retroactive post per month, January to October--images, mainly.  Because I feel it's never too late to share Beauty.  It's never too late to share Love.

Awake
















i thank You God for most this amazing  

day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes 


(i who have died am alive again today, 

and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings;and of the gay
great happening ilimitably earth) 


how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any - lifted from the no
of all nothing - human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?


(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
