Untitled 0176*

Hi. It's been awhile. Am still alive and frolicking kicking. I guess I somewhat took a break from this place and I didn't mind it, and I didn't miss it. It was quite relaxing. I'm just here and there. I feel aloof and well.

Not much news really. I am in the process of getting some of my prints professionally printed. Finally! Before I was printing for my portfolio [book] on 11"x14" paper from WHCC, but now I'll be printing them maybe 22"x30" from this awesome fine art print house not too far from my place. Every time I go there I get inspired. It's an amazing feeling whenever I see these larger-than-life prints all spread out on the table while the curator shows me all the different papers and finishes. A good friend of mine, who's also into design and photography, and I are heading out to this custom mounting/framing place this Monday to see what options are available to finalize my prints. They also specialize in lamination, fabrication, crating, art handling and installation of fine art pieces. I'm excited.

I'm also looking at getting some promotional pieces printed. I'm thinking some postcards along with an intro/cover letter in vellum paper and envelope. Not sure which image[s] to use though. Baby steps.

Before I go [and who knows when I'll be back, right?], I forget exactly where I got the above 'artwork'. It has been many years since I downloaded these files and I still have many on my computer. Lost and found. Something unexpected. It's quite beautiful innit?

Yeah, life's like that.

Understanding

Understanding is totally different from knowledge. Knowledge is borrowed, understanding is your own. Knowledge comes from without, understanding wells up from within. Knowledge is ugly, because it is secondhand. And knowledge can never become part of your being. It will remain alien, it will remain foreign, it cannot put down roots inside you.

Understanding grows out of you, it is your own flowering. It is authentically yours; so it has beauty, and it liberates.

Yet of course, the reason why you want to understand is a whole other issue.
