October 2010


October 2010



No quiet moments in travel. Every moment quiet in travel.
10.1.2010


Toroidal energy. Perpetual motion. Going around in circles.
10.2.2010


Parallel tracks.
Books, papers, media, in all places.
Seasons, self-reflections, skillfully curled.
10.3.2010


Paper patterns passing.
10.4.2010


Autumn rolling in. Summer rolling out. Everything going around in circles.
10.5.2010


New themes. Old memes. Do metaphors get recycled or do symbols always point to the same thing?
10.6.2010


Resting in the cycle. Energy pooling. New work sprouting.
10.7.2010


A mountain range grows from a curled up leaf. Deep ponds fill a hickory nut. Inner work goes outside on a perfect autumn afternoon.
10.8.2010


Kusha grass and curled leaves. One is a metaphor for outward growth and the other a sign of withdrawal. Today growth wins 3-1.
10.9.2010


The most ordinary of days. Kids. Pancakes. Farmer's Market. Lunch. Nap. Playtime. Dinner. Sleep. Time moving back and forth in an easy meandering flow.
10.10.2010


Transparent tasks.
10.11.2010


Struggle to grow. Easy in the summer. More challenging in autumn. Rest and grow again.
10.12.2010


Busted! Okay - I know I've been giving airy readings and talking about the weather. I've been doing anything to avoid finding out what's happening behind the cycle drawings. Are they done now? Before autumn of 2008 there were no cycles in the drawings and then they came to dominate the cards. Now when I start to draw one I am immediately self-conscious. In my mind they are too thick with labels and preassigned meanings. I recognize them too easily. Then they come from memory and look derivative; like I already know what they will be. Are the cycles finished or is there more to learn from them? It's time to push the system out of equilibrium and see where it settles.
10.13.2010


The chips arrive to stabilize the system. Old friends offer their inner wisdom. What messages do they bring?
10.14.2010


Eating a tuna roll. Contemplating the universe. Dividing time between image and idea.
10.15.2010


Favoring openness. Transparent windows in the chips.
10.16.2010


A fountain of drawings. Every time I open up I get a flood. What does creativity look like today?
10.17.2010


Swirling winds. Subdivided phylogons. Focus on the whole picture.
10.18.2010


Boundary issue. The third thing between us. The path becomes obvious.
10.19.2010


Integration. I make a drawing to relax myself in the minutes before I stand in front of an audience and talk about my art. The timeless quality of improvisational drawing clears my thoughts. Then, for the next hour, I weave together a story of logic and intuition.
10.20.2010


Face to face and the third thing. Stacks of ideas to load into empty cabinets. Moving between states.
10.21.2010


Well mapped territories meet the tentative first explorers.
10.22.2010


The journey happening at all times and on all scales.
10.23.2010


Fuel for the crucible. How to get more energy out of teaching than you put in?
10.24.2010


Reaching for the jewel. Gathering air. Can't put your hand on what's not there.
10.25.2010


Needy phylogons. Desire is the hole in each moment; what you need to be whole.
10.26.2010


Hierarchy of needs. What gets satisfied first?
10.27.2010


Studying the shape of where the leaf is released.
10.28.2010


Changing seasons. A clear signal to release attachments and develop new growth.
10.29.2010


Releasing light. Transforming reflection. Deepening shadow.
10.30.2010


Non-ordinary reality. Seeing the drawing and not the thing drawn.
