Double lives

No comments:


I was looking for something else when I stumbled across these two photos - double exposures, and I believe they are from late summer -93. Excuse the bad cell photos of the pictures. This one is of my cat sitting on the "other" bed in the room I always stayed in when I visited grandfather, on a rug that my grandmother wove and that I still have. It is disintegrating somewhat (the warp is, anyway) and I am thinking I should try to get some equivalent looking warp and restore it. It has, as far as I know, never been a floor rug. The second photo is of my dog and my mother's legs, taken in my grandfather's kitchen, the overlay is my cat, taken in the hallway at the house we lived at the time (some hours carride away from grandfather's house).

Ink and the preparation for ink

7 comments:
My ink collection is growing.

How many ways can that be interpreted?

I can think of at least two ways in which it is true. Neither of them has to do with collecting octopi however. Only one of them results in a storage problem at home.

Tomorrow I am going to talk to my "dealer" about the next installment. My right arm is my drawing arm, and my currently drawn-upon arm. :)

Context

1 comment:
Friday I got to thinking about context.

Setting 1: Crowd of acquaintances, bar, noiselevel: Loud but one can talk with raised voices in small groups. 
I frequently find myself the Listener, only sometimes trying to awkwardly add something in a self-conscious attempt to participate.

Setting 2: Small office at work, three union board colleagues are sitting on chairs. 
I am pacing the three possible steps back and forth, waving my arms around, pulling at my hair, talking so fast I stumble, interrupting myself, frustrated that I can't just export all the things I want them to, need them to, know and give it to them, nervous energy making me vibrate.

Both are undoubtedly me, and neither is better than the other, both are Not-Me too - a kind of warped me, negative energy me, un-zen me, off balance. But in one I am highly communicative, the former I am withdrawn, mostly thinking, either not finding words or dismissing my thoughts as unsuitable.

Absence

3 comments:
Two months of fever resulted in (finally) an antibiotics cure and I got rid of the fever. I am still somewhat congested however, and my throat is still sore, since I have a virus infection that took over when the pneumoniac stuff went away. My energy levels are exceedingly low and I am not doing stuff - like posting here. Or going out much. Mostly just working (I had almost a month's worth of absence from work to catch up on, because nobody does my job if I am not here) and trying to sleep and do nice things that I want to do, rather than push myself beyond my energy levels.

I've bought extra legs for my sofa so I can unhook the parts from eachother and use them separately, and I bought a two dimensional xmas tree, so I'll have to get back to y'all with some info about that :D Oh and I am knitting again, so there are a few WIPs turned FOs to be photoed too.
