The Minute is Over (for now)

These are among the last drawings of one minute poses that I did with Cenedella. This month, I am taking an intaglio printmaking course in the morning and a class on artistic anatomy in the afternoon (held in the very classroom that Robert Beverly Hale gave his famous lectures on the same subject).img_0290img_0289

Peace Rally

It is quite possible that future generations will ask us what we were doing while our leaders conducted an illegal occupation of Iraq while implementing the practice of torture against detainees. It is important to recognize that their are and have been Americans who have not stood by quietly as events unfolded in the name of ‘war against terror.’

I have recently scanned these negatives from a 2005 NYC rally of over 300,000 civilians who gathered to voice the message: bring the U.S. troops home from Afganistan and Iraq.

R.M. Rilke

An excerpt from Rainer Maria Rilke’s Letter to a Young Poet:

Be patient toward all that is unresolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books written in a very foreign tongue. Do not seek now the answers, which cannot be given to you because you would not be able to live them.

And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now.

…perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer…
