Some kind of heaven to me

“A book must be an ice-axe to break the seas frozen inside our soul.”—Franz Kafka

“…books, the acute and excruciating acts of concentration by which humans aspire to self-transcendence, to capture forms of understanding more profound and rational and cosmic than they themselves are by nature capable of directly being…”—Kenneth Smith

Populated Desert Island

The release party for Static Fish has now come and gone.
Thanks to all who made it out.
To all who didn’t, you missed free beer and a store full of great books, people,
and gag toys.

Now, we have to get back to work on the next Static Fish and all the other things we all do.

Not to mention World Cup action has finally begun. Hurray!

Here are some pics from the show:

Kris looks on. The books vibrate with power. People commune. And, finally, Anthony makes his first grab with a set of chopsticks! Thumbs up Anthony.

Hunter, Anthony, and Kristin look on, skeptically intrigued, as Ben, blissfully ignorant, eats his cake donut while reading a book.

Reconnoiter for the first time

Last week I drove all alone Upstate.
What a beautiful and amazing place New York is.
Once outside the city that is.
Of course even Manhattan used to be beautiful.
If only the Red Indians had been a bit more cynical,
perhaps this natural wonder would have been allowed to remain.
I cannot help but think of the Red Indian.
He knew the natural paths and rhythms of this land.
The White Man came and destroyed all of that.
And thank the Great Spirit!
For where would we be without our highways, and interstates?
Where would we be without our Wal-Marts, and Targets, and Home Depots?

Here are some pics of places I swam at. And places I stopped at.
And 7444 Gallery where I installed a show.
