Just in time for Halloween – do you know jack?

ohand not Halloween, but ohmygoodness COSTUMES!

and again media on my mind – last week there were the newspaper animals, now, amazingthings done with salt.

if you’ve ever noticed a brick circle in a San Francisco street…

from an interview with Lindsey Boldt:

What is art? Is it necessary? Why?

Art is a physical process, so not really optional. For me, it used to be all about expectoration. I went through my day collecting all kinds of garbage energy, and then at some point, I had to get it out of my body so I wrote poems. Unsurprisingly, most of the poems from that time are full of images of shit, piss, vomit, phlegm and blood.

The work of artists is to tune ourselves like instruments to be receptive but also to choose the frequencies with which we want to work and to block those we don’t.

We are not pure channels. We are filters. Energy runs through us and bounces off our internal architecture. Mostly, it’s our job to show up, maintain good boundaries, clear the channel and get out of the way. Then, we can choose to tidy up afterwards and make whatever came through look more or less like a poem or a story or whatever. Sometimes I think I should do less tidying.
