Fund a mental

Looking for someone else takes me into spaces  I would often prefer to  avoid or at least to void,


A father,  a mother, a daughter, I think the father is referred to as Layman Pan’g, a historical person  in the history of Chan. I tried  have to find the book, its paperback ingot a light brown cover,  but I could not find it, he was not formally a member of the Sangha but he is known for his zen


Waiting for the bus along Highland Ave  near Belmont Street, Somerville, circa 1970. After living in  the San Francisco Bay area for over 30 years this photo strikes a memory, or the lack of one, just a feeling,  I cannot remember wearing a coat like  is seen here, except of course when I to San Francisco  and often in the afternoon  when  the fog comes slowly in the Golden Gate chilling  the water as   the wind blows the cold air  through the shadowy canyons of the city where between buildings  is a wind chill factor cold.


But you often see SanFrancisco residents, shopping downtown or in the financial district wearing fashionable  cold weather coats and down town stores will feature them  in windows. However if your waiting for the bus along Highland Ave  near Belmont Street, Somerville, circa  fall 1970, you could be making a fashion statement at the bus stop


Looking to find and waiting to be found outside of Amherst . . .


Eric would use these tools around this time, circa 1982, to create encaustic art on board







Its pretty strange being alive,  recalling the words from The Grateful  Dead . . .

“Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip it’s been.”

And some  from Zappa . . .

“We are the other people ,
We are the other people,
You are the other people too.”
