“I will not be just a tourist in the world of images, just watching images passing by which I cannot live in, make love to, possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy.”

“Joy appears now in the little things. The big themes remain tragic but a leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the taste of coffee–Joy accompanied me as I walked to the press. The secret of joy is the mastery of pain.”

“I know why families were created, with all their imperfections. They humanize you. They are made to make you forget yourself occasionally, so that the beautiful balance of life is not destroyed.”

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

I went over to pARTiculars in Lafayette today to get some Christmas gifts from my friend Willi today.  What a great little cooperative gallery!  Cris Conklin Todd Redmond, and Emily Miller amongst others have their work there.

I don’t how many years ago I saw my first Marc Digeros teapot at an NCECA show but I fell in love with his work then.
