If my ears and nostrils do not betray me

Someone in my building is on their back deck smoking a cigar and listening to John Denver's "Country Roads". It is not me.

Many years ago

Carson, Amy, and I collaborated with other friends to create a yearbook in 02006.
Out of that came a larger, more deranged installation at Fringe Exhibitions in L.A. Carson, Amy, and I collaborated with twenty others, including Carol Anne McChrystal, for that project: in 02008 we premiered the first and second parts of Disembody, an installation and film. The third part of Disembody, a feature length documentary has been trapped in post production hell for six years.
Here is detritus from one of the last surviving elements of Disembody, an arcade game we built. I had hoped to ship it intact to the Midwest, but life was not so kind.
It is not exaggeration to say that the bonds forged out of these earlier projects are the heart and soul of earthbound moon.

Sorry, Jonny

Disembody disembodied

The depth of the sky

at times you can see all the layers of the atmosphere, and it is almost as if you are floating in space

That wisp on the left

It is my breath being taken away by the sky, again.

Do you really think she'll pull through

First I saw the sea gull with a flower.
Then, because the human mind is inexplicable, an ear worm burst into song in my mind, and now will not go away,
"Sea gull with a flower, I know, I know it's serious..."

Thanks for the heads up, Amy!
