Art of Chess

Wednesday (Sept 16) Otis took me to Francis Naumann's to see this show. Francis is a big fan of Otis' work. Otis and I admitted to each other that we are not great at chess.

HANDS

These hands were meat for more then just fighting--JAZZ HANDS
Why I need to do this
Cause nobody else will
What you want me to do- just roll over and play dead
You can't keep people back who refuse to be kept back

Writing is a weapon and it's more powerfull then a fist could ever be

It's nice to have friends

Survival

Survival- Means Attracting Attention To What's Critical
It's all coming together
Originals never change
They Just Get Better
The difference is intelligence
It's A First
Crazy
Sexy
Cool

Human Presence

As beautiful and inspiring as art might be, it can never reach the power of presence naturally expressed in a baby's smile or the sinister glower that can cross an old woman's eyes.Human presence is different from everything else in the world.No concept, image, or symbol can ever gather or hold down a presence.

When we observed the application on men's treatmtnt to men, there was no result. Thus we knew that men's spirit had weakened and that they had become the same as… Continue

Two Roads

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
took the one less traveled by,
And that made all the difference.
