the necessities
the conflicts
the joys
the sorrows
interrupt my obsession with paint
seemingly random output
as individual as the days
built upon the last
second to last
one hundred eight

they become one more bead on the mala
one knot added on the twine
I lay down my energies
as bird tracks in the snow
souls on the hill
ravens in the trees
the history of these works
becomes the chronicle of my life
