July 2009



Which sense do we use when we are sensitive to others?
7.1.2009


Day rolls into night. Thoughts overlap.
7.2.2009


Deep reserves. Hidden source. Subsurface rivers changing course.
7.3.2009


Describing the createton [ a fundamental particle of creativity. ]
7.5.2009


When is a blind spot a bright spot?
7.6.2009


The bear market rally is wilting but the daisies that grow in the shade near the barn have made it into the summer and are looking for a few more days in the sun.
7.7.2009


Propagation of uncertainty. Small irregularities in measurement and materials are amplified over distance, repetition and time.
7.8.2009


Sunshine and storms. Clouds pass. Waking and sleeping. Clarity lasts.
7.9.2009


Twists and turns. Unmet expectations.
Things work out surprisingly well.
7.10.2009


Inside and outside. The circuitry is blending in and out extremely well these days. Energies are getting realigned.
7.11.2009


Lazy, hazy, crazy daze of summer.
7.12.2009


The sound of the wind in the trees here. The shape of the meadow.
7.13.2009


Resisting the world. Trying not to listen.
7.14.2009


The plan. Drainage. Floor. Sheetrock, windows, door. Art.
7.15.2009


Brainstorm. My drawing practice often involves sitting quietly and trying to intensify fleeting sensations. These states of mind seem to have more dimensions than I can simultaneously grasp. Making the marks on paper flattens the experience into a picture. Some marks diagram geometry while some describe change. The drawing is the code. Looking at the drawing reanimates the vision.
7.16.2009


The fullness of summer. Easing through overgrown days. Purposefully engaging the environment.
7.17.2009


Set patterns break up. New cycles are beginning. What remains persistent?
7.18.2009


Square one. My first sketches of the day are often of stacks of cubes. A default mode? A basic sign? Or maybe a familiar home from which to build tension before launching back into the unknown?
7.20.2009


Ideas in bloom. Neurons fire and thoughts are organized but feedback comes from making.
7.21.2009


Days drifting by, sharing color, overlapping, one inside the other.
7.22.2009


Reflecting the world. How do our senses shape the mind's improvisations? And how does the mind shape the senses?
7.23.2009


Pollination. Going to seed. Reaching out in all directions. Hoping something takes.
7.24.2009


1. Draw a row of thin vertical rectangles.
2. Look at the sky before painting each rectangle.
7.25.2009


"To stand despite all possibilities to fall!" -Paul Klee
7.26.2009


Pandora's garden. We've had so much rain that we can't rein in the cucumbers, zucchini, squash, green beans, watermelon and pumpkins that are crawling all around and covering the ground. Every leaf we turn over holds a new surprise.
7.27.2009


Rivers and flow. Mulling over the river symbol I started wondering how to read the area where the frames overlap. I decided it represents a discontinuity in the flow; such as when a thought changes. I was also reminded that although I think of these frames of the river as separate shifting moments, the entire river is actually a single thing spanning the distance from source to ocean.
7.28.2009


Flow continues. Looks like I'm still learning to interpret the river frames. Yesterday I assumed they always represented a progression of moments experienced in time. But the way this set is oriented, almost like a hand of cards, gives me the idea that today's frames represent an array of alternatives. The flow you enter may depend on which frame you pick.
7.29.2009


Resonant flow along parallel paths. Three free frames asserting their individuality share a moment of color harmony. One river flows through all of them. Instead of experiencing one frame, why not all at once?
7.30.2009


Multiple paths through multiple worlds. How many thoughts do you hold in your mind simultaneously?
