Points Intercede In The Cold Vacuum Of The Frame
Points Of Reference Expressive Of Pathways And Contours
Form And Colour Juxtapose To New Definition
Spaces Reflect The Unseen-Unknown
If Reluctantly

Music Will Continue
Even If We Do Not
(Our Choice)
Art(S) Already Inhabits The Fabric Of Nature
To Be Carried On In Unfathomable Detail
Contributing To The Evolving Stream Of The Natural Order
Being Created
Infinity Beckons
If We But Listen

Logical Progressions As Illogical Extremes

Fragile Edge Of Distinction
How Fine
Sustained Only By The Imperative Of Renewal
Of Change
Through The Evolving Mist Of Logic(Natural) And Reason(Natural)

Even Though We Are A Relatively Recent Addition To The Planet As A Species, Our Brains Have Developed To A Point Of Intellectual Awareness, Logical Discernment As Well As Ability To Reason.......The Arts Reflect This Development Well.............So Why Are We Not A Peaceful, Cooperative Species?................Why Does Evil Exist?.............Why Do People Die Of Hunger Or Any Preventable Disease?.............Why Do Cultures And Sects And Various Groups Cling To Precious Myths And Beliefs And Dare Anyone To Question?.....................Why Do We Kill, Assault And Maim One Another?...........Why Do We Not Share?............Why Do We Not View The Preciousness Of Life Of Every Other Species On This Earth As We Should Our Own?..............Why Have We Done Such Great Harm To Our Home, This Earth?..........Why Do We Not Exist As A Thriving, Developing, Highly Creative Species Successfully Proceeding On Nature's Evolutionary Path?
The Answers ARE There............Locked Deeply Within Recesses Of Mind
Each And Every One Of Us

..........Then What Is Happening There.............Is Happening Here
(Absence Of Distance)

Where Did We Meet Ourselves When Coming In?
Was Chance Fortuitous?
Beloved Dilettante
Did You Not Miss The Essence Of Your Freedom?
Did Awareness Find Itself On The Blind Side Of Superficiality?
Does Thought Remain In The Sterile Vacuum Of Myth?
Intractable In Measure Or Process
Even....................Even Still

Recent Study - 2013-6

Art(S) Must Represent The Time It Represents
And It Must NOT
The Signpost Of Our Species Must Reflect The Present Myth Of Now While At The Same Time Destroying It
Art Must Create Its Own Fecund Enveloping Atmosphere Of Experience And Knowledge While At The Same Time Creating And Allowing New Thought-Idea
Within The Confines Of Now Rest The Fine Distance Of Future
To Grasp Of That Future And Bring It Into The Now.............Obliterate Myth And Resistance, Create New Pathways And Avenues Leading To Greater Reason, Sensibility And Yes, Logic Is The Imperative

Recent Study - 2014-7

Has Anyone Noticed?
Anyone At All?
Nature Is Taking Her Planet Back
Natural Processes Are Now Underway To Remedy The Excesses Created By One Of Her Citizens, Us
Amazingly, How Far It Will Extend, From Total Catastrophy To Total Extinction, Is Under Our Stewardship And Control
And.........Amazingly Still.........We Do......Virtually
We Are In Lockstep To Absolute Disaster
Sense It
Feel It
See It
Do The Right Thing

What Is Your Vehicular Monthly Gas Consumption?
Do You Drive Only When You Have To?
How Much Are Your Utility Bills?
How Much And What Kind Of Food Do You Consume?
How Much Do You Spend On Non Necessities?
How Much Garbage Do You Produce?
Are You Contributing Anything To This Planet?
Anything At All?
Take A Hard Look
If You Are Not Giving Back More Than You Take, With Rapidly Increasing Population You Are Contributing To The Demise Of Something You Should Hold So Dear.....Your Own Species
We Have Silenced So Many Many Other Species Through Our Reckless Actions And Behavior............Their Sweet Voices Will Never Be Heard Again..........Will Ours Continue?.......Nature Does Not Follow To Our Myth...........Natural Logic Precludes Excess And Aberrant Behavior........Natural Logic Includes Only A Reciprocal Necessity
Urgency Is Now.......Now Is Urgency
