Readings

Read, paint, draw, and a little writing, but more reading. These last two weeks have alternated between  these diverse doors of reality.

  • Watercolor--Whitney, a late great painter and teacher helping me in my DIY art school. Daily readings and thinking required.
  • Just finished, Palmer, On the Brink of Everything...deep thinking and truths about getting older.
  • Just started, Thomas Merton's autobiography, since so much I read seems to refer to him these days, about living and eternity (oh, wait, that's redundant).
  • Hopping chapters, Craig Childs travels about out southwestern deserts, and the repeating dyings of our planet, including now.
  • Seabald, Rings of Saturn--here's a story of my summer international twitter bookclub, headed by a professor at Cambridge. Mind blowing.
