being loved changes your life

 thinking of you again this day

all of you, whose dreams were lost, broken hearts left behind

for you, I live my dreams

for it was you who showed me how

 

here's to you

Dear Sun, Thank you.  2020 Still shot by Badir McCleary from drone performance 
 
This work is from a series called, "Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Aether" Each drone performance focuses on one of the elements of Nature. Badir and I have completed "Earth", "Fire" and "Water"  in the series so far. 

"Dear Sun, Thank You" focuses on the healing power of the sun and is the element of Fire. I have lived with the debilitating effects of Lyme Disease since 1991. When I moved to Los Angeles from the East Coast, my suffering eased from being in the warm, dry and sunny climate.

These works would not be possible without Badir's talented filmmaking. During lockdown, I was looking for ways to transcend the boundaries of the stay at home order. Badir's drone work from the BLM protests inspired my idea of drone performances. We are equal artists on this project

All I want for you my son, is to be satisfied
 

Happy 30th Birthday to my favorite person in the world
I love you Buddy



So proud of you and all you've become
You're a one-of-kind human being

Just love her so much


 Every isms and every theory should be studied, but they can only be viewed as hypothesis, not dogmatic credo; they can only be viewed as a source of reference, not as rules of religion; they can only be viewed as inspiring tools, not as absolute truth that halts any further critical thinkings. Only in this way can people cultivate creative intelligence, become able to solve specific problems, and emancipate from the superstition of abstract words.

I love my eye doctor. He got a new machine and I asked him to show me the images he took 

aren't the beautiful?

I love eureka moments. Holy cow. The possibilities.

The Kiss of the Butterfly, 2022 

Collage on Digital Photograph, Animated

The butterfly has emerged from the chrysalis, 

and the kiss of the butterfly awakens the reborn Venus floating among the waves.


Text and the figure are inextricably entwined. 

There are so many words that can harm one’s experience of being in their own body, 

sometimes lasting for a lifetime. 


Loving words are a balm to the soul, like the kiss of a butterfly. 

Still from The Kiss of the Butterfly
 

 

Wealth is going to flow into my life, 
and it's going to enable me to execute all of my projects 
without ever again worrying about having to be distracted 
by having to make money.
Everything I've accomplished so far has been done without it. 
Wait until you see what I can do with it

 I was asked for the three most important things I am looking for in a relationship

Here they are:

eros cannot live without philia...  Philia is the relaxation in the
presence of the beloved which accepts the other's being as being; it
is simply liking to be with the other, liking to rest with the other,
liking the rhythm of the walk, the voice, the whole being of the
other...Philia does not require that we do anything for the beloved
except accept him, be with him, and enjoy him.  Rollo May
-
Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. 
WB Yeats
-
Love is knowing the words that can kill,
But never using them

Persephone

You ask me how I became a madman. 

It happened thus: One day, long before many gods were born, I woke from a deep sleep and found all my masks were stolen, the seven masks I have fashioned and worn in seven lives

I ran maskless through the crowded streets shouting, "Thieves, thieves, the cursed thieves." 

Men and women laughed at me and some ran to their houses in fear of me. And when I reached the market place, a youth standing on a house-top cried, "He is a madman." I looked up to behold him; the sun kissed my own naked face for the first time. For the first time the sun kissed my own naked face and my soul was inflamed with love for the sun, and I wanted my masks no more. And as if in a trance I cried, "Blessed, blessed are the thieves who stole my masks." 

Thus I became a madman.
