One looks, looks long, and the world comes in. -Joey Campbell

When I see a head from a great distance, it ceases to be a sphere and becomes an extreme confusion falling down into the abyss. -Alberto Giacometti


I have the feeling that I've seen everything, 
but failed to notice the elephants. -Anton Chekhov

The problem turned out to be that I was never that kind of artist

i kiss your feet + apologize, but —
i’m seeing businesses on line, in brick & mortar shops, in boxes; offering the commodity of creative. Selling being taught the craft of being creative.  Costing + tricking people into being creative. It’s yummy time - get those creatives juices flowing = GROSS! Creating is something you do, not something you are. i get that it’s a tribe. i get that some people need to be pushed into a directive. i get that some people may be busting numbers around all day, dreaming of being artistic. But, numbers + paper-work sound like a break to me! i'm looking for ways to get out of being creative.
      Actually that will be my next gimmick. 
                             Ask me for an uncreative solution;  
                                        Break it completely + throw it away.

Whoa, did i just write that out loud?
Working for, working with, working through —  it's all the same energy. 
Just sometimes someone is looking + paying, sometime not. 

If i ever felt like i didn’t have a purpose … i would need to work harder.  Or, i should have chosen something i imagine to have more purpose.

We all chose what we do, and we pay for it … David Walker said something like, years ago as he calmly philosophized + drew beautiful illustrations via designing costumes in the opera shop corner — while i ferociously wrestled a hat into submission.
