Minotaur plate #11

Somewhere...There must be an exchange program for inmates.
How nice.
But I would much rather be a toll taker subject to transfer.

My marvelous pictures would be chalk drawings of Buonarroti masterpieces on the marble side walks for loose change.
I would not scare the pedestrians.
I would not look up.

Prison tattoos - I invented them.
As a pedigree that is obsolete, let me be quoted in saying that shape shifting can be learned if you are willing to chance it.

  2. ...and who among us would really chance shape-shifting? A very risky undertaking, I'm thinking...

  14. Always thought provoking and interesting artwork!

    btw, i might have seen you back then, except, since i was underage, i saw them mostly at the rusty scupper. although i would have liked to have seen them at that club on union street. david let me listen to some tapes back then of post and them there and it was magical.

    i knew them through ts sister and was part of the family after that ; )

    Cheers!

  15. CM... as per your comment from your place....Yes, I will always remember Tom as a skinny kiddish young man singing 'Delicate Balance' in that smooth voice...and not long ago I sent JP a note thanking him for singing kids songs, and being able to introduce him to my kids n that way. I was underage when I first started hearing their music... but at the time one could get into nightclubs (late 70's) sans-drinking stamp, just to enjoy the music... Steve Goodman was one of the Chicago group back then and Corky Siegel... OMG I do go on...sorry & thanks for reminiscing! w/ me!-J

  16. J, those were the days and I'm glad, I was able to watch it all see some of those people. They did not reap big rewards as far as $$$$, but they are real people, with real friends, and that's something!

    Cheers!
