JULY  AUGUST SEPTEMBER OCTOBER

NOVEMBER 30, 2006

THIS IS A FUNNY TIME OF YEAR NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCE, LET ALONE THE TRAGIC WARS IN MESOPOTAMIA, THE  POPE HOPING THE TURKS DON'T SEE HIM PRAY, AND ME BEING THE SAME LAMENESS I HAVE BEEN TOO LONG TO COUNT, BUT THAT IS HOW IT IS AND EVERYONE TRIES...

WHAT GIVES ME REAL HOPE IS SEEING AN OLD PHOTO OF MY LITTLE DAUGHTER STANDING IN MY HAND PLAYING A VIOLIN KNOWING SHE IS BEAUTIFUL.

THEN I SIT DOWN AND TRY TO BE AN ARTIST AGAIN, EACH TIME DIFFERENT FROM THE TIME BEFORE, AND SO THAT IS WHY I AM DOING PUSSY CATS IN HATS.

AS MY OLD FRIEND NEIL CAMERON ONCE SAID,

EVERYTHING IS FUNNY IF YOU WAIT LONG ENOUGH.

After  Thanksgiving, it is hard to kick out the lazy-good-for-nothing food eating  beer drinking spirit--especially when it gets cold and the snow is beginning to fall.

More snaps of the front gate, friends, the cat, the house, the studio getting filled with things that are going to a yard sale this weekend (Nov 30 to Dec 2).

It is the first snow of the season.

Just in case some of you have wondered what happened to 

THE ADVENTURES OF EL GATO

Well...all good things take time. El Gato is forming somewhere in the swirly-whirly-gigs of creative thinking, but just to let you know he exists, I am revealing his after-hours look as well where he kicks back in his off hours of being a CAT HERO.

Thank God, one wonderful big day has passed by--THANKSGIVING, which as fortunate as I am, I have to say it seems weird to be sitting at a table that is full of great food and wine with a lot of very good people enjoying being alive.

There are reasons for feeling odd about it, one being it has been the first festive celebration I have had in my house in several years. It is wonderful to have a home again surrounded by friends and a lover. I have been in exile too long.

Beyond that, it is because of the fearful and violent condition of the world, out there only a few clicks away. Either by car or by TV, we are reminded that the world is not even close to peace let alone many people that won't give thanks to anything but the vengeful hate demon of ideologies. Screw them all. They should practice laughing more.

At least I am lucky. Yesterday I laughed and I plan on doing it again today.

AND FOR THOSE YOU WHO ARE NOT HERE I WISH YOU WELL

ANYWAY IS GOD KIND OR WHAT?

I BELIEVE SO.

 BUT DON'T SAY KIND OF WHAT.

MEANWHILE I LIVE LIKE A PASHA IN PASSION

AND SAY GOOD LUCK

NOVEMBER 6, 2006

The autumn is the most beautiful I have seen here for many years. So what to do in autumn but build a nice new cabinet in the sun room and go for walks in the desert.

I have been doing the substitute-teacher gig. I take attendance of the kiddies and stop them from burning the school down. It is a rewarding way to earn a whole $75 a day. That is before before taxes, ten smackers for gas to get there and three spedoolas for lunch that works for gas on the way home.

To keep from going completely mad and pretend that I am fundamentally an artist I make up little stories in class as the day drags on.

With the inspiration of my good woman I came up with a story board full of thumb-nail sketches called  THE ADVENTURES OF EL GATO.

The hero is kind of a mixture of El Cid, Zorro and Daffey Duck, but he is a cat based on Cosmo The Insane who recently departed.

Here is the rough beginning of EL GATO.
