Yesterday Rita and I had lunch with an old but young friend in Norwich, CT. Mushroom soup and asparagus mixed with conversation of a religious order. Catholic schools , artists, a nun beating a young girl for wearing her hair in bangs . The young girl then tore off the nuns habit in retaliation never to return to the school again. Rulers as weapons, festering wounded saints being resurrected with shovels and coming out smelling of roses. More delicious mushroom soup and for desert, tea with round weight less host like wafers made from almonds and egg white. Water ,air and blood seemed to rule the day mixed with the most famous ingredient of all LAUGHTER!!!! which leads me to......

The day before yesterday I was cleaning piles of drawings/art from 1968-80 or so and found this quote: "Seriousness seeks to exclude play, where as play can very well include seriousness." If any one knows who said this I'd love to give just attribution. Which leads me to the sumi drawing above OH GOD!! that I made of a character poking fun at GOD while in a dangerous balancing act of absurdity at that. I hope you've been entertained but now this nut has to go find a squirrel.

Temple detail

Here is one of the temples. All seventeen are very united in the look.
Their about two feet tall and will add a smoking quality to the circle.
