12th-5/9 entries for annual ROM / muse - The dogcatchers of vatican city vs. the fisherman of switzerland / jkg
Put two ideas or tangibles together that don’t go + see how they relate. Even the game Mixed Taste has rules, + though it can’t be considered to be in the reaches - except the reaches of one’s mind - they do change every time. Giant Tortoise + Punk Rock scene of Vivienne Westwood. Second year novices + the ’67 Rambler. The Dog Catchers of Vatican City + (you knew this was coming ) Fisherman of Switzerland.
Our minds want a linear story + what we can’t figure, our minds are able to massage into a believable form. Our intellects + our hearts build, (knock down + rebuild!) what we think we believe. In our life’s exploration we have criss-crossed the path from where we have been, back again over familiar terrain + not even recognized it. This reminds me of the resolute feeling of what jet lag is — working thorough everything needing attention at one time, + being totally, absolutely, completely ineffectual w/ it all at the same time. The wayward intent, though, becomes the layman’s Shunyata. This emptiness / openness permeates, + is seen as something to work through, but in the moment, you have to accept it.
What may seem like a waste of time to some, my skin becomes thick + sharp with memories yelling Kiken, Kiken!
Sometimes what looks large from a distance, up close, ain’t never that big. -Bob Dylan
It is bravery when the risk is recognized.
