This is the poem Jon Ogden wrote to go along with this image at the art show we appeared in back in December. I will be posting the others from the series over the next week. He is a very talented poet and one of my dear friends. He has many creative endeavors - I hope to be able to share more of his work in the future.
I am working on another collaborative project right now. Colby Stead's new album will be coming out soon and my artwork will be featured with the CD. I encourage all of you to keep an eye out for that on colbystead.com. Colby is a talented and inspiring artist and one of my dear friends as well. Keep checking the website for details.
Thanks for keeping with me.
Since I last posted I have cleaned my room, registered for 21 credits of class, started an Internship, written a paper, driven from Utah to Oregon, driven from Oregon to Utah, done the dishes, eaten twenty-three fruit leathers, danced the magic dance, run over half of a dead deer, seen a play, killed an Arab, eaten eggplant twice, made chocolate pancakes, started a Marxist revolution, thrown a cup of water in someone's face, eaten fish tacos, been bitten by a dog, yelled in a restaurant, gone to the bathroom without washing my hands, put extra sugar in my oatmeal, pet a squirrell, pierced my nose, killed a terrorist, listened to six hours of bluegrass, spoken Spanish, explained religious doctrine, driven a PT Cruiser, read a novel, read an 18th-century romance, picked a scab, gotten a sunburn, washed my hair in a river, used more than my share of paper towels, showed off my knife, sang soprano, burned a CD, talked on the phone to someone in Australia, built a fire, buried a dog, visited the ocean, missed two classes, bought a 3-lb bag of garlic, stayed up past 5am, slept in a tent, slept in a car, and used someone else's shampoo.
I'm quite exhausted.
what have you been doing?
