So much thanks to Lisa Allender, (see her under ‘linkers’) for bestowing this work with the One lovely Blog Award. Lisa is an ‘it’ poet in Atlanta, her roaming location is global. She writes and links to the Atlanta scene and of real and important concerns of us all. She is my favorite bleeding heart (in the positive "lets get it done" way)... and if I wasn’t one before, I have all of her reasons to be now.
Words are indeed my second language, but, becoming an ever more closer second. I do believe it is easier to misinterpret written word far more than spoken, since the tone is left up to the reader....makes for some lively, and sometimes misdirected comments. One thing is certain, though, everyone gets their say so on paper, or in this case, on the unlined screen. Even if it ends up being an unread paragraph for a nonexistent audience. The Zen of writing at our fingertips!
I knew an artisté whose art took the physical form of post card invitations to art opening extravaganzas around the world. Each of these A6 pieces of chrome coat had the back story of a thousand hours of processed art and the promise to inspire even the hardest of aesthetics. And, of course, there weren't any shows to open.
We need to release all of the marginally insane.
