Out of the Box

Yes. I have committed to a show in June with Lindsay Shelly and another show in July at the Fire Flower Gallery. Why not, the more people that see my work, the more people there are to love it, buy it, and collect it. Then there are the other voices that say; oh "I hate it," or "I wouldn't give you ten cents for it," or "humph, beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder." Be gone self effacing talk, remember; through your passion, power and beauty you communicate your unique vision of the world and help facilitate understanding, acceptance and love.
Junes theme is collages and the title is "Out of the Box" It is going to be a little unusual for the people in Wasilla. There will be some social commentary and different types of collaged images. I will put my "poetry boxes" in also. The Bagel Deli is a family restaurant that also serves pizza and coffee. So the show can't be too risqué or we can't use bad words like this "Jim Morrison Shrine". by Judy Vars c. 2006

Shake dreams from your hair,
My pretty child, my sweet one,
Choose the day and choose the sign of your day
The day's divinity
First thing you see.
A vast radiant beach in a cool jeweled moon
Couples naked race down by its quiet side
And we laugh like soft, mad children
Smug in the woolly cotton brains on infancy.
The music and voices are all around us.
Choose, they croon, the Ancient Ones
The time has come again.
Choose now, they croon,
Beneath the moon
Beside an ancient lake.
Enter again the sweet forest,
Enter the hot dream,
Come with us,
Everything is broken up and dances.
Jim Morrison
