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.

    “…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?
