Happy Hump Day, machines and machine people!

I wrote this in the 90s and never finished it. Maybe I should.

Elephants never forget. You know why they say that? It’s because when elephants are born into domestication, they are immediately put into a cage or a box or bound by rope or chains or whatever other way a human being sees fit to make sure the baby elephant stays where a human being decides it should be. The baby elephant tries, with all its might, to break free from the bonds or the enclosure but to no avail because it is too weak and small. Once the baby elephant tries and fails, it will never try again for the rest of its life. That is why full-grown, adult elephants can be kept in cages or boxes or bound by rope or chains that they could easily break. An adult elephant is powerful enough to knock over a building without much trouble but it doesn’t attempt to break the bonds that it failed to break as a baby elephant. Poor elephants, they never forget.

Some human beings are like that. (more…)

Everything is a collaboration. If I know (of) you, you are a part of everything I do, say, paint, draw and type. If you know (of) me, I say, paint, draw and type it for you. Consequently, thank you/I’m sorry/you’re welcome.

That said, only one person can own this. Right now, it’s me but the sooner it’s out of the way, the sooner we can make more for us.

While a hurricane ravaged my home last fall, I sat by a pool in Las Vegas… feeling very sad… doodling. I think it was all a Mirage.
