    John and Curt, Thank you.

    It has been an interesting morning!

    Theosophy, Neoconservatism, Counter Culture, Bohemians

    It has resulted in a new signature line: My aspiration of late is to become more Bohemian; "a person with artistic or intellectual tendencies, who lives and acts with no regard for conventional rules of behavior."

    Doesn't mean I like Mondrian's work any better.

    The only connection I'm making/getting/seeing to Theosophy and it's byline "There is no religion higher than truth", is a sense of "arbitrary order and rules" which I guess could be used as a definition of truth or reality.

    That's at odds with my Bohemian sensibilities.

    Mark I've been doing a lot of thinking about the state of art today and the Post Modernist Period and where we are headed with our "traditional" photography. I've not drawn any big conclusions but I do feel that there is a transition to another Period happening, especially in photography, and it's unclear were it leads and what it will look like. I dare not say more in public but.... and that's what I'm think about. Long walks with a dog by a river passing ponds with frogs and fields with cows and beautiful trees have elevated me to another plane.

    That proves that we might take one picture of the same thing and get two totally different results. Or we might see a picture of something like a window, but there is more to see than just a window. The window is what it is, but what else is there?

    I pictured a ghost in the window of my past that created an aberration of intellect which caused me to believe that my CNS had been damaged by the cloud of doubt upon it. I now distrust the the CNS in a can, Chicken Noodle Soup, and think that the contamination isn't hallucinogenic but maybe just a salmonella induced desire to get though the window and see the early morning sunlight as if it were a port hole into the vast unknown. So in fact I may be seeing what Jaime sees but from the outside in and not the inside out. The same but from a parallel outline in an egg shaped time wobble that causes the moon to be full for three or four days in a row.

    Per, Per, Oh Per,

    We, you need to do a real serious check on the enrollments for this workshop. No funny plants stuff at the house just the regular stuff, beer, wine, and Tequila. And a few good prints. Ok and some food too.

    Oh, and make sure your homework is done or no party.

    ps the major question is not composition, it's red or green.
