All in good time - David Stafford, Marie Wintzer, Guido Vermeulen and TICTAC

I don't know if it because its the beginning of the year, or we're getting old-ER!!! Or its just serendipitous, but I had a rush on the subject of time.  David Stafford sent me a calendar which included some of the DeskTop images from an old project - well its not ttthhhhhaaaaat old! Pink Floyd - Ticking away the moments. That make up a dull day. Fritter and waste the hours. In an off-hand way. Kicking around on a piece of ground...

So I'm thinking that if the toothed column ate an og, we're missing something with teaching? 

My favorite of course is by the Enchanter himself - Education is like a big-haired girl in a bare tree :-))! 

I never thought that DeskTops would come in so handy :-)

From Marie Wintzer aka Sweet Pea (Japan).  I asked her to make me a cover for a new book I am building to keep all her beautiful artworks in.  

Time like an ever rolling stream

Bears all its sons away

They fly forgotten as a dream

Dies at the Opening day.

12 months, how fast they fly. How quick the silver mercury slips through our fingers, looking for cracks in which to disappear.


From Guido Vermeulen (Belgium) -  The Time Sheet (Envelope)

Included was this Chapbook by  David Stone, and illustrated by Guido  titled Night Town (Phrygian Press)

A few lines from

A Cinder of Time

In Multiple places,

tired people

scratched visions

of indented theories 

of matter and cells...

set on the table 

a theory of causation

about an episode in Vienna. 

But - I think, if we can end our time as "Color me Beautiful" , looking like this card TICTAC (Germany) sent, the measure of our season turns will be Color Me Warm.    

Many thanks again for a wonderful selection of work :-) X

ViZma - does your hairpiece (Cassandra?) go on dates on her own, or do you tag along? Katerina - thank you - yes, I have received GREAT mail art - I'm glad I had a breather to blog some :-) X

She said no to Molly and Debussy. Wants something more exotic and underwatery!

Debussy? Oh, of course:

Moons and Junes and ferris wheels,

the dizzy dancing way you fell...lalalal

(WHAAAAAT?)

I think Molly sounds good. Like Mollusk. Like jellyfish, sorry, octopus.

Oh Jessie, I will cut fresh flowers for you, oh Jessie. Nope.

Comment by Marie Wintzer on March 1, 2012 at 12:34pm

Jessie?

Oh yes, it- I mean she does need a name. But nothing that will make us sing the same thing for days on end. Not Joni. Or Graceland.

And she whistles in tune.

Comment by Marie Wintzer on March 1, 2012 at 12:26pm

I thought it was a she!? I think she needs a decent name.

Comment by cheryl penn on March 1, 2012 at 12:24pm

Me too :-))!!! Your hairpiece too? Can it sing in tune? :-) X
