If you
imagine less,
less will be
what you
undoubtedly
deserve.

DO WHAT YOU LOVE

and

don’t stop
until you get
what you love.

Work
as hard
as you can

imagine
immensities

don’t
compromise

and

don’t
waste time.

Not
20 years

The Known and the Unknown – #9

I recommend
the following
course
of action

for those
who are just
beginning
their careers

or

for those
like me,
who may be
reconfiguring
midway through

heed the words
of Robert Frost

Start with
a big
fat Lump
in your throat

start with
a profound
sense
of WRONG

a deep homesickness

or a crazy
Love Sickness

and run
with it.

If you
imagine less

less is
what you
undoubtedly
deserve.

DO
WHAT
YOU
LOVE

and
don’t stop
until
you get
what
you Love.

Work
as hard
as you can

imagine
immensities

don’t
compromise

and

don’t
waste
time.

Start
N0w.

Not
20 years

not

from now.

“Another Day”

Sung by Roy Harper

sad-heart moon stars & clouds in sky

“Another Day” - Roy Harper

“Another Day”

The kettle’s on,
the sun has gone
another day
She offers me Tibetan tea
on a flower tray

She’s at the door,
she wants to score
She dearly needs to say

I loved you a long time ago, you know
Where the wind’s own forget-me-nots blow
But I just couldn’t let myself go
not knowing what on earth there was to know.

But I wish that I had ’cause I’m feeling so sad
that I never had one of your children.

And across the room, inside a tomb
our chance is waxed and wanes
The night is young,
why are we so hung up
in each others chains?

Forget-Me-Not-field

I must take her,
I must make her
while the dove domains
and feel the juice run as she flies
run my wings under her sighs
as the flames of eternity rise
to lick us with the first born lash of dawn.

Oh really my dear
I can’t see what we fear
Sat here with ourselves in between us.

And at the door
we can’t say more
than just “another day”
and without a sound
I turn around
and I walk away.

The Known and the Unknown – #8

The grand scheme
of a life,
maybe
(just maybe)
is not about
knowing
or
not knowing

choosing
or
not
choosing.

Perhaps
what is
truly known
can’t be
described
or
articulated
by creativity
in logic,
science
or
art

but perhaps
it can be
described
by the most
authentic
and
meaningful
combination
of the
two.

As
Robert Frost
wrote

a poem
“begins
as a lump
in the throat

a sense of wrong

a homesickness

a lovesickness.

It is
never
a thought
to begin with.”

“…but I will
do nothing
unless commanded
to do so.”

I think
people
are
the same
we like
to operate
within
our abilities.

But whereas
the computer
has
a fixed code

our abilities
are limited
only by
our perceptions.

Two decades
since determining
my code

and after
15 years
of working
in the world
of branding

I am now
in the process
of rewriting
the possibilities
of what
comes next.

I don’t know
exactly what
I will become

it is not
something
I can describe
scientifically
or
artistically.

Perhaps
it is
a
“code
in
progress.”

The Known and the Unknown – #6

Just the
POSSIBILITY
of failing
turns into
a dutiful
self-fulfilling
prophecy.

We begin
to believe
that these
personal
restrictions
are in fact,
the fixed
limitations
of the
WORLD.

We go on
to live
our lives,
all the while
wondering
what we
can change
and
how we can
change it.

And we
calculate
and
re-calculate
when
we will
Be ready
to do
the things
we want
to do.

And
we dream.

If only.

If only.
