If you know about kickstarter, you know that now is the period in which george has to raise funds. He must successfully raise $10.000. to publish his proposed book, Best Magical Photographs of My Life 1987-2015, by June 15th,2015,or he gets zip.

I’m working with him because the book is 2/3 about me- his photogenic muse and her (my) art.

Please look into it and thanks for thinking of george and donna.

Former Pres. Bill Clinton affirms that his presidential library museum makes certain that all viewers inescapably believe that whom one votes for does make a difference. I believe in voting.

Dream of Aliens in the Elevator

In my dream the rockefeller center bldg. spokesman came to see george and me and told us that – UNBELIEVABLY the aliens wanted to talk to me rather than good ol’ george, their chief champion.

Well, nobody quite knew what to make of it but i dutifully trotted after the aliens’ liasion-man to the elevators from whence the aliens would exeunt and speak to me. But when the elevator door glided open there were three Cheryl Horning sculptures on the elevator carpeting and they were not alive.

The man tried to shoo me into the elevator but I resisted and Mickey was there behind us, tagging along as additional troops, so the representative didn’t force me any more and I was safe, staring in horror at the misrepresentation in the elevator.

End of dream. Are Cheryl Horning sculptures like aliens? I can’t figure it out, but they are definitely unearthly and otherworldly. And thank goodness for Mickey. We should have been on our guard at any news that aliens would prefer to speak to me than to george who has been their best ally for years.

mythic creature with mythic thought

This mythic creature stands as a good image for today’s difficult blog. It’s a complex creature of feathers, claws, circular body parts and an elephant trunk-snout.

My thought, too, is a swirl of the child-like fun of exploring one’s identity by building friendships, and the serious business of knowing oneself.

Long discussions which resolve in my telling my friend my insights into his or her positive or neutral character-make up always refreshes both of us participants. What’s refreshing unburdens the mind with honest-speaking,receiving back for one’s vulnerability positive words furthering one’s knowledge of self in the comments offered as a fitting tribute to the story teller.
