"There is nothing except the eternal now. The world is precisely the relationship between the world and its witness. And so if there are no eyes in this world, the sun doesn't make any light - nor do the stars. The whole world is a phantasmagoria. An amazing illusion."

"Rites of Passage" 1984
Reflecting a bit today on an artist who truly honored the Native American tribes. BIG LOVE to the late Susan Seddon Boulet for your inspiration and soulful work that will forever reflect the strength, beauty, and magic of the indigenous tribes that were so brutally massacred... Who still stand strong in the the face of the corporate darkness & militarized police mobs at this moment.
• TRUTH ON TRUMP ELECTION •
"These are your heroes, your American Snipers and Captain Americas in all their syphilitic charm. This is your oblivious entertainment and the parade of your own lack of imagination. This is the girl on the back of your motorcycle, your cardboard sexy. This is the bulllol you worship.
How far gone you must be. How lost in your own fantasy and privilege. How determined you must be to maintain your bubble. How unaware of your place on this planet, in this climate, of your voice and power (lived not assumed) must you be to have voted for your own lack of conscience?
We who are not immune to your nasal vocal fry, who hear your raised voice and bombshell laughter, who recognize the twang of your guitar and robotic twist of hip are very clear on what we're seeing. The profane mascot on your cap and shirt, rather than remove and burn, you have chosen to present to the world as a mask. You have elected a caricatured mascot. A totem to your ignorance.
Here is the proof of the internal battles you have not fought, the lines of credit you have not questioned and never intended to pay back. The thin man you saw in the forest. The clown that kept popping up in the shadows. The chair that rocks that no one is sitting in. This is your haunted house built over our graveyard. The car that won't start. The murderous ski mask. This is your cop drama, your cowboy fantasy, your bed sheet cape and plastic boots. Your fears, fantasies and entertainment all wrapped into one high-strung effigy whose burning fire you will not be able to contain.
You have proven your enemies right."
