kitchen window

Thank you angel sister for the silkscreen and the love

“Oh god…” What a terrible new habit. That’s right, now I mutter “oh god” in the oddest places instead of clubbing the invisible wolf. (It’s just as well, someone might see me.) So yes, another kitchen window photo. Grit and cracks and cobwebs, boyos. Transmute, baby! Hup! Hup! Is it working yet? Oh god. She asked me why, I just went on and told her.

“Metaphysical distress,” I said.

That covers everything except the fear.

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

    “…and then TAOS struck!”

    it says so very very much in so beautifully few words.

    maybe that should be the title of your next book? 😉

    Ok, I’m seeing things! It looks like a thin skeleton of a man hanging on the wooden structure that looks like a cross. The window looks like an interesting painting from a distance. Love your sister’s cool cat! Talent runs in your family. Metaphysical distress! I like that phrase.

      Hi MJ! Everything in photo is heavily processed in Photoshop. Many steps. Window itself has colors inverted. Part of what’s there is reflection from sunny kitchen wall. Yes, that’s Teresa’s “Double Espresso” cat image. As for metaphysical distress, see my next post, coming up shortly.

    I like it! Taos still Life, don’t you think?

      Yes, I do. In fact, one can buy it right here!
