40s heirloom disintegration

40s heirloom disintegration

Old money and the value of different things -- an emerald necklace bought with oil money, worth more now simply based on the neck it once adorned. Now, open the gates -- step aside for the prescription drug epidemic and the reality television shows. Step aside for the disconnected generation. The generation of gift cards and $70,000 pick-up trucks, of gentrification and rising property taxes… Now, think back to that Christmas -- all the gifts you opened -- can you recall? Where are they now? In columns of memory that seem to possess more dimension from this angle.

A tribute to the smell of sunscreen and chlorine, to blooms and fresh cut blades, and for the hope that the memory of this moment can live until next year.

Static Archives

Static Archives

All the televisions in the house go to a boring blue screen. Gone are the black and white images - the snapshot series of electronic snowflakes, each one slightly different than the one proceeding or following. I used to hide under the table and contemplate the meaning and message of the glowing screen, usually concluding that this was most-likely a subconscious message sent from another race, another galaxy. What were they trying to say? A warning? A warm greeting? Or, perhaps praise? I could never be sure. Looking back, I wonder how many messages have gone undetected… and if one day… we'll know…

I turn my sander on and adjust my breathing apparatus. Chance, what do you have in store for me today? I'm sleep deprived and I've skipped lunch but I have no problem being the medium between here… and there…

I inspect the inside lip of cereal boxes and the margins of newspapers…looking for those registration marks; a favorite being the ones that don't quite line up. The ones giving Fred Flintstone a slightly psychedelic presence on the Fruity Pebbles box, or foster the notion that maybe the true underlying message to the front-page article on a blurry Bill Clinton is that he really did inhale. Perhaps the human error in alignment is no error at all; maybe it's a secret practice commonly shared between the Off-Set Printers' Guild -- to keep the perfect machines slightly removed.

in a dream, the jarring realization of connection

in a dream, the jarring realization of connection

Remember that time you woke up in a dream and realized things were playing out like a miniseries continued nightly, weekly, or even monthly, but with no commercial breaks? The first time you realized that some things were connected and others were not? Similar to lines: some fully connected, others fractured. Well, I found it jarring.

There's more than one side to every story. Just think of all the integrated or shared scenarios compounded with multiple perspectives, making up one flowing, moving entity known as "self".
