Bubbles and Streamers
Motion is a lovely illusion, full of nuance and visual stimuli. The orderly-seeming motion of water and the mysterious effects of moving air are certainly fascinating phenomena. Motion only exists because of relative position. The motion of an object can only measured by its changing relationship to some other object. It must be traveling either away from or toward some other thing. Both objects are either in the process of coming to be or ceasing to be. The path of the moving object is always a curve because both the objects and their relative motion have separate relationships with the energy and motion of the expanding universe.
In the midst of all these unpredictable eddies and currents I write to you unsure of everything, including my own existence – or perhaps yours, or both. One might ask, why? But why might one ask?
During the month of June, The Poetry Locksmith feature at Eye On Life was blessed with a good crop of poetry submissions. We posted poetry from perennial contributor Donal Mahoney, new poets J.K. Durick, Frank C. Praeger, Cynthia Vantresca, Maria Picone and others, and returning poets Michael Estabrook and Diane Webster. Please stop by and read their fine work. You can read some of my work there, too.
Things have quieted down musically, as they usually do in the summer when many of the musicians I play with are away. I will also be away for a couple of weeks and away from my instrument as well, so when I return I can look forward to getting my chops back. I did manage to get the last piece from our recording session up at Soundcloud if you would like to hear it.
I have been working on some new music and will keep you posted as to my progress.
I wrote a couple more articles about door hardware, too, if that is one of your vices 😉
Thanks once again for stopping by.
