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

Sweet Pea here. Austin you have been listening to Paul Simon non stop since last Saturday!? HS, I thought Debussy was only for weekends. I was wrong then. Anyway, great blog! And thank you put including the cover. What's a pedogical? Does it also grow in the northern hemisphere?

So many great pieces, a real pleasure...

Try Clair de lune - I GUARANTEE its calming powers :-)))!

I WAS relaxing with Paul Simon, but having Hearts & Bones playing with Pink Floyd running through your already anxiety addled brain is not good. And now if I don't listen to it, the lunatics will get in my head!!!

Wonderful Cheryl. Now I'm going to have to stay up & listen to Dark Side of The Moon, because once you start it, you HAVE to listen to all of it. Awesome work everyone :D
