finding a path
my oh my it's not a great week for the pets in the blogworld, huh? mav , shari , and kelly i'm sending well wishes for you and your loved furry ones!!
i was completely inspired the other day by this amazing post by gwen . her photos and description of how she found the abandoned house inspiring really hit a nerve with me.
in the way that only the internet can do... i then stumbled upon a few more moments of abandoned beauty. first this abandoned city in russia
and then... this photo by noah! . the beauty in the decay.... i then oohed and ahhed through his photos of the san francisco dump - check out both of the sets .... as well as the photos he's drawn on . i can't really pick a favorite they are all so incredibly dreamy.
so today i started the next installtion at after modern . i painted two 4 post beds on the corner of a wall. thankfully i like it and that part is done. frankly it's all the wall painting i can muster for a spell. i realize that i am reaching my limit... thank goodness i have a couple more weeks before i have to teach. if i started next week i think i'd literally be a zombie at the head of the class - mumbling some incoherent nonsense about hoping for happy accidents and finding motivation with-in and from-out....
one more thought.... bara has started to post some of her thoughts on poetry. i'm moved by how her response to "good" poetry is similar to mine with the visual.... also i'm excited to be schooled in poetry by someone so passionate about the subject. it's always something i've admired from afar and never dared to delve into. she is giving me courage.
ok friends... i will start to share some of this new art soon... promise.... and i've responded to comments again [sorry i slacked on that for the last couple of posts]
