Evening Drives

After moving back to Moses Lake in October of 2004, I quickly resumed where I had left off. After visiting a few friends and locating some strong medicine, I began going out at night, grabbing coffee, and driving around the deepest folds of Mae Valley. The music was always hand-mixed for optimal chillz, and the medicine more than accommodated for the eventual paranoia that crept along for the ride.. Read more »

Two Faces

I have accepted my face. And, I, for now, have two faces. I can smile and laugh and talk with you, or I can simply turn, look you dead cold in the eyeball, and appear completely objective, stern, and in control. When I look at you with both faces, you become restless, confused, and overwhelmed. Do not fear little one, I come in peace, yet I come in pieces. Read more »

Two Faces Two

Even when I am outraged, and the right side of my face is angry and intense, there is calm in the storm. Simply follow my left face, which remains entirely mellow and detached. As if I were one again. Read more »

Two Faces Three

When I woke up this morning, preparing to do some light traveling, I felt fine. And, despite my car needing sudden and immediate repairs, eventually found my way to Seattle without incident. Yet, during the ride, I remember noticing a bizarre taste on the left side of my mouth. Also, the left side of my face felt different — at the time I first noticed this, I could not define the precise nature of such difference, but I am sure things had changed somehow. While in Seattle, visiting friends, I became aware of the fact that, when smiling, I was […] Read more »

Planning with Detachment

Editor’s note: the following is an unedited excerpt from a spontaneous thought stream captured while exploring a chemically altered state of consciousness — i.e., not to be taken too seriously. Any spelling, grammatical, and/or other errors appear below as they exist within the original text and have been left unedited for full effect. planning with detatchmentt: //how is art categorized in the mind? by which mechanisms are images organized, classified, and understood? consider alternate possibilities concerning how art is thought of and appreciated. look at a trash can. find one. now look at it, for a moment, and ask yourself […] Read more »

December 2002

it has been fire for two months at least and now it is time to rebirth into a new creation. who will i be this time and what about the universal consequences? i need to know these things before I return. after that, it’s ibuprofen. for now, i will draw and paint and mix my music. i will work and play and breathe and smile. it’s a different kind of blue.. seriousness in art and not seriousness in art. be inside and see outside softly reveal. focus or die. fast or slow reap what is sown reap what is sown […] Read more »

June 2002

And yes, you know as I know — the secret of the Lake: early morning freshly fallen dew filling your nostrils, big sky days, and the chillest of sunsets and evening ambiance air still warm from the afternoon heat as the sun goes down — so quiet, so calm, only the sounds of crickets and creatures clicking and chirping and croaking their way into those glorious, panoramic galaxy star-filled glow-moon nights.
