The Sidney Greenstreet Blues

I think something beautiful
and amusing is gained
by remembering Sidney Greenstreet,
but it is a fragile thing.

The hand picks up a glass.
The eye looks at the glass
and then hand, glass and eye
fall away.

- Richard Brautigan

My artwork is a direct physical record of thought and energy transferred to a chosen medium: It is derived from my awareness of the world and a conscious and sub-conscious expression of its influence.

- Mark A. Cleveland

A writer, or any man, must believe that whatever happens to him is an instrument; everything has been given for an end. This is even stronger in the case of the artist. Everything that happens, including humiliations, embarrassments, misfortunes, all has been given like clay, like material for one's art. One must accept it. For this reason I speak in a poem of the ancient food of heroes: humiliation, unhappiness, discord. Those things are given to us to transform, so that we may make from the miserable circumstances of our lives things that are eternal, or aspire to be so.

- Jorge Luis Borges

Or, more simply: "There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in."

- Leonard Cohen

You hardly know a day goes by with a cardboard cut-out sundown.
