Get it.


Muy buenas tardes.

Two of my shots may be found on Point of Departure.
Both images are of musician + poet Henry Grimes.
The shot found on the opening page is on 4x5 sheet film.
The shot with Pierre Crépon's Henry Grimes and the Spiral of Time is on 35mm roll film.
Huge thanks to Pierre + Bill Shoemaker.

Shot found above is 35mm in Henry's bathroom.
Am showing my stigmata from screwing (...coat hangers into one tough wall).

Guatemala was wonderful.
I feel very, very lucky.
Beautiful everything.

Truly wishing everything was Beautiful.
Appears USA is falling apart at the seams.
Peace to All.

hola, hola.
have been living in Mexico since the beginning of December.
everything cool here.
people take my work seriously...ask me how it is going on the regular.
have a bed for the first time in years.
marble floor + large bathroom w massive tub.
trees w avocados, bananas, pomegranates, limes, grapefruit + peaches
found either in my yard or nearby on the street.
bamboo all over.

fresh air.

sounds of roosters, donkeys, dogs + all kinds of birds everyday.
not one single time have I caught grief for being without money here.
how nice it is not to be disrespected (+ hugely disappointed) in this manner!!!
feels so much better to be in this environment,
surrounded by people who take Artists seriously...
see value in our work and our efforts.
people are far more generous in Mexico.
on days when I have not had cash, I am fed by people who care for my well-being.
there is a woman whose portrait I made who will not let me pay for her delicious tejate.
it is the best.

am drawing + painting, exposing sheet + roll film.

to the good Life.
if You do not feel that sentence, then go find it.
my visa is up in a few days.
off to Guatemala.

"¡Hola, guara!"
"¡Hola, corazon!"
