This morning very early, I recorded a cover of Moonshadow. It was fun. I hope you like it, if you listen.
Then Ming and I went for a morning walk that was a little too ambitious for me. When we come here to Beatty, I always want to rest a lot. I think it’s the higher elevation.
Ming and I walked up some hilly streets, then up a trail, toward the B on the hill. I felt a little cranky.
I was thinking how I used to hate red, and I hated blue too. And now, I can love them and seek them out, even buy clothes that are red or blue. How strange. I like almost all of the colors now.
Also I was thinking about a friend I love and am afraid to lose. Sad curiosity. There’s a progression for me: sad curiosity, nervousness, anxiety, panic.
Wow, do I look photoshopped in this picture? I stand out from the desert background, like I didn’t belong.
There are a couple videos I want Ming to help me create. One will be a part two of the ecstatic dance video. Another will be me show-and-telling my emotional first aid kit.
On the walk, I saw a yellow ball. As I got closer to it, I saw it was actually a small round gourd. I kicked it a few times, toward the street, so Ming and I could play, together. The third kick, it hit a rock and broke into pieces, seeds flying.
“Bet you weren’t expecting that,” I told Ming.
“No,” he said.
We also saw two bunnies, ruins, creosote, sky.
I finished the art embroidery I was doing on Ming’s shirt. Did I already show you this? I might use interfacing, next time.
It’s based on this graffiti I saw, in Las Vegas, while stopped at a red light.
Envelope drawing I made, also based on it.
