Happy holidays ~may you enjoy the ride of the tide engulfed in the wave of love that lasts and excites you the entire year! My wish would be for Peace to be shared and experienced throughout the world ~m
I have been really hoping this month like most of you, but not because of the holiday, but because of a social project that took vast amounts of organizing, reading and getting a small local to join together, and change the intention of a few self indulgent politicians. As a group we did stop an unfair gentrification proposal but we didn’t change the people in power!
My Rant for the month: (you can just skip over to the next topic)
Appalled by a very horrifying event did take place for one of the residents of Fort Ann NY. The neighbor, who proposed the eradication of the small farms in that town, poisoned and killed 2 prize bulls (at this time unverified, but information is coming from Cornell University).
I have been sick over the events and created a memorial to give to them in hopes of showing my empathy.
I find myself astonished by bad behavior of adults!!!!!
Deb Witherell, Deputy Town Supervisor said she exhausted all avenues to get the animals removed. So she used the towns lawyer to create an ordinance, using her position on the Town board to try and force everyone, tax payers, residents, into complying to her wishes.
She has NOT been fired nor required to pay the costs of creating the ordinance! And the Town Supervisor Richie Moore supported – supports this type of bull. The transcript form this meeting is pathetic and I was told to sit down 2 times during public comment, the board did allow me to speak when everyone left. -Pathetic!
next subject- Consciousness research and creative digestion continues-
Stream of Consciousness: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stream_of_consciousness_(narrative_mode)
Although these 2 articles are short reads there are many other offshoots to make you think and digest.
I do however think it very interesting, that consciousness, questions, ideas, research are very old. And yet I’m finding the subject an extremely exciting source, from which my work is springing forth.
The term “stream of consciousness” was coined by philosopher and psychologist William James in The Principles of Psychology (1890): and in 1918 the novelist May Sinclair (1863–1946) first applied the term stream of consciousness, in a literary context, when discussing Dorothy Richardson’s (1873–1957) novels. -Wikipedia
I’m continuing the projects-
“Sculpture as portraiture and the role of environment as visual conversation.”
Last month I talked about where Object interjects with atmosphere and perception- and how it can be re – viewed, seen or captured.
this has been examined through the sculpture named “Embryo” over the last year months.
When I reviewed the photographs, a new question appeared –
“Is the object or atmosphere the context for personality of the sculpture or object.
and this month I think it grew into: ………..or are the parts the source of the live perspectives or qualia?”
Thank you for our time together have a wonderful holiday! ~m
