As my artist's statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance. -- Calvin and Hobbes

Watching..the pentultimate way to spend time

"Eyes On You", Mixed Media, 6x6"
(on display at Defoors Centre, June 10-August 31st, 2012)

I sometimes just wake up.  ..and watch my room at rest.

I can't say it's because I'm well rested or even that some loud noise startled me in my sleep.  Not even the sound of the sweet birds in the wee hours.  Really, I can't find a reason.

I wonder if someone is watching me.  Like a spider.

This morning, I awoke at 5 and stayed in bed, eyes wandering around the room, shifting in vain for nearly an hour before I just got up and came down to watch the tube, er, plasma.  A nice latte to keep me company for a while.  I found Law & Order and grabbed my laptop so that I could successfully lack optimum concentration on either activity. 

I got up after only 4 1/2 hours of sleep knowing I would be trying to find an excuse not to go hiking at 8 because I would be too tired.  Now I have a half hour to get dressed and go tackle the 5 1/2 mile hike and beat the previous time of 1hr33min, and my butt hurts from leaning on this sofa.

On the plus side, I got to see a really old Chris Noth & Paul Sorvino episode of Law & Order, so old that I saw Claire Danes playing a young school girl.  Everyone, even Captain Cragen looks like a baby!

Ok, enough rambling, time to get dressed and sweat before the sun can blister my skin.  I think I'll put my eyes to some good use and focus on the trail.

Things to Ponder

Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches. -Andy Warhol

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
