almost glory


the sun is in my eyes
my down coat is silly
and fabric vestibules unnecessary

the park is a mellow brown-grey
the pond is almost frozen
mallards swim at its still liquid edges

i am not suffocated by the night
or by my three scarf sandwich

the end of my nose is almost warm
and i am enjoying this month
in all of its almost glory.

This is my painting

or maybe it’s a collage.

It was painted in September.

I think of it as a floating world.


36" x 48"

acrylic and pages from an old botany book, on wood

2012 you’re alright

So many good things happened today: new beginnings, opportunities out of the blue, in the rare zone of peaceful focus during my work, finally hearing back after months of waiting, laughing at a joke I made in the wee hours of the morning which I forgot and then remembered later in the day to intense merriment and...most of all, he was here when I came home and he was cooking a creative and delicious meal. He also did the dishes. The only consistent reminder that I was not in a dream was the fact that I had slight gas all day.
