the joker on the edge of the forest
From my perspective, I absolutely believe in a greater spiritual power, far greater than I am, from which I have derived strength in moments of sadness or fear. That's what I believe, and it was very, very strong in the forest.
Jane Goodall

Radio 109 Zep Tepi
Pamela Jeanne Ott Ingate collection
These are primitive beginnings in art, such as one usually finds in ethnographic collections or at home in one's nursery. Do not laugh, reader! Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in their having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved from corruption at an early age. Parallel phenomena are provided by the works of the mentally diseased; neither childish behaviour nor madness are insulting words here, as they commonly are. All this is to be taken very seriously, more seriously than all the public galleries, when it comes to reforming today's art.

the weight of a dream 
Search for a path of knowledge and salvation..attention to everything that lifts man above himself, at least to draw him out of himself.

close encounter
Jared Shear collection 

 "Have we any right to assume that the Creator works by intellectual powers like those of man?". 

"May we not believe that a living optical instrument might thus be formed as superior to one of glass, as the works of the Creator are to man?"

Charles Darwin 

Michael Dunning Collection
may moon in scorpio 
The dignity of the artist lies in his duty of keeping awake the sense of wonder in the world. In this long vigil he often has to vary his methods of stimulation; but in this long vigil he is also himself striving against a continual tendency to sleep.
Marc Chagall

the planetarium of ma'at 
The planets chime a wonderful tone with the Earth's geomagnetic pull. The novice ear can tune into the invisible trails the planets follow. The song is a template for flowers and other pleasant miracles.

realm of the sorceress 

Visual art is a form of astral projection. Echolocation occurs while an artist is painting. Signals are sent out into the unconsciousness and bounce back. The artist can navigate and tune into invisible frequencies. The hand captures a wave by ideomotor response and brings out a pattern

dragonfly and the Clone drone battle over the heart of man

From the 1927 Grand Council of American Indians

"The white people, who are trying to make us over into their image, they want us to be what they call "assimilated," bringing the Indians into the mainstream and destroying our own way of life and our own cultural patterns. They believe we should be contented like those whose concept of happiness is materialistic and greedy, which is very different from our way.
We want freedom from the white man rather than to be integrated. We don't want any part of the establishment, we want to be free to raise our children in our religion, in our ways, to be able to hunt and fish and live in peace. We don't want power, we don't want to be congressmen, or bankers....we want to be ourselves. We want to have our heritage, because we are the owners of this land and because we belong here.

The white man says, there is freedom and justice for all. We have had "freedom and justice," and that is why we have been almost exterminated. We shall not forget this."
what the turtle told of shapes

There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres.

And not the seeming isness of the was.
