seeking without looking

I once wanted to be famous. Now, I just want to be myself. Hence the name of this blog. In living the simple life or a t least a version of it, the essential things must be done. You oust chop wood to build a fire, and carry water to cook, bathe, clean and make art. I admit,of course, that it come from Zen thought, and that seems to be the most suitable place for me at present.

I'm exploring watercolour for the first time to a greater extant. I always found it to be an unforgiving medium, but that thought is quickly changing as I discoverthe notes, syntax, andpunctuation necessary for the language. I still seek the language of cloth, I seek to understand it to communicate an to listen to it. I've been dyeing and painting bandage Gauss and am exploring it as a new series emerges.; Bangers for the s9ul, so to speak. Ah well, we can't all be famous, even the famous have to be themselves. Our lives play out on a web, woven just for us and sometimes we walk it and it trembles, and sometimes we tremble.
