July Mosaics: Juxtaposition

17 Comments 16 July 2012

Years ago, I had the privilege of rubbing eyeballs with royalty. Flanked by an impressive retinue of distinguished figure heads, the fair-skinned and curly-haired king stood before a hushed audience at my university and delivered a cultural manifesto on the artist's role in creating the juxtaposition of political and religious imagery to benefit and protect society. But I was more interested in his shoes.

June Jazz: Stimulation

16 Comments 25 June 2012

We buy a couple of corn dogs and head over to the free stage. My eyes wander off and I see a teenage girl standing on the back of a motorized wheelchair, lurching left and right, while her driver zig-zags across Main Street like a Hollywood stunt driver.

June Jazz: ‘Sweet Jazz O’ Mine’

June Jazz: Improv

25 Comments 04 June 2012

Light pours through the west end and floods the wooden floors of our home. James is in the front room, dancing. His clunky, horse-like heels stomp to a syncopated rhythm, following the dizzy-eyed direction of his four-year-old vision, rather than my music.

May Play: Stretching

20 Comments 28 May 2012
