a mood
todays mood
there are clouds in the sky
warm breeze
and I listen to the weaving going on between the guitar and bass
the quality of the sound is like the pictures in the video
slightly out of focus
as if silk gauze has been stitched over it
a new cloth is soaking in soyamilk
summer and change are here

this new cloth is not going to be like the previous one
no pictorial representation, just leaves and shadows, a dreamscape for a story
this will be painted on, scrolling with a light behind it
when it makes me some money I'll do it again with linen and leafprints

with new project I have to get a "proper"one out of my system,
and then I can go wild so now that I have a "proper"storycloth, with pictures in boxes, now I can do the singing one. the chanting one is waiting for its turn
the blank canvas moment is my favourite
lets see what story will be born of this mood
grace set the mood this morning with the story. thank you grace

hope when you googled, you watched the final
interview Bill Moyers did this April with
Barry Lopez. some very wonderful words in there about storytelling.
thanks for waking up DEAD!

yvette- me too!
joei, its the drumming. And I love what jude has been doing. I'm hooked! or stitched??

jayne- there is a viscosity..and I'm not joking, well sort of. the air is thick, the bark juice for the cloth is going gooey so fluid images is what I'm after with this one

grace while you sleep, I wake. there is a rythm there, maybe also a meeting in dreams
the DEAD they come and go, always with purpose. I think.
