Read Gusky's apocolyptic and ever astute comments here.


Smiley makes me happy.

government is different from making and selling stuff. A citizen is different from a consumer. Not every human need and every human desire has to do with getting and spending. Government ought to act as a break on capitalism, and capitalism ought to, sometimes (as in China), act as a break on government, and everyone is better off when government, religion, money, and personal growth and happiness are in separate spheres.

I wonder what goes on there all night.

Walking around my neighborhood at 3 o'clock in the morning, with a camera. I guess I should have known they shut off the fountains. Found them all still, smooth, like they were drinking in the night, or laying there like the night sky that I can't actually see.


"Would he be able to die young - and if possible free of all pain? A graceful death - as a richly patterned kimono, thrown carelessly across a polished table, slides unobtrusively down into the darkness of the floor beneath. A death marked by elegance."

sorry to interupt the travel fotos, just thought you might find this comic from Sunday's Reforma as amusing as I did.

Saunders at Cheryl Pelavin

Christopher Saunders, Arise, 2005

Wow. Chris Saunders is one of the hardest working artists I've had the pleasure of knowing. His work is finally getting out there. He's one of those painters who can make an audience love paint, almost taste it. Check out more about his show here.
