Microcosm of Mine

Rubber cement scented fingertips dripping onto finished project backsides mounted on bristol and no that is not the name of a girl but a type of paper for designated design projects effected teachers whim or syllabus appointed curriculum what is understood...self contained downplay vital midterm report that your parents wont see because its not about them anymore you are alone in progress in self sustained and mounting debt in dead lines and self motivation its not the pay its not the pats on the back but the finished project backsides in a microcosm of self importance.

Childhood 101

Spring chicken children
giddy youth
hop skip
bubble gum pop
spit distance contest
stick prod a dead bird
a rabbit hole and out

Andrew Wyeth 1917-2009

The Newberry Library, Chicago, il. -2007

A pleasant summer in Chicago. A pleasant trip to the annual Newberry Library book fair. Flipping through numerous donated books. Dog earred and dusty volumes. A few pearls strewn about. A room of maps and posters...and he was there. Andrew Wyeth(poster). For those of you who don't know of him, he was an American painter, he painted warm portraits and stark landscapes. I wrote about him in a September blog. Today he is dead. Now go learn of him and make him a legend!
