MONA LISA AND THE CLOWN AND THE COOL RAIN OF THE LAW


"Mona Lisa and the Clown and the Cool Rain of the Law" -- gouache, watercolor and chalk pastel image by me from the early 1980's.

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." -Oscar Wilde, writer (1854-1900)

"The truth was obscure, too profound and too pure. To live it you have to explode." -Bob Dylan, writer and composer (1941- )


The photograph above and the one to the left are from Bob Dylan's film "Masked and Anonymous."

Do you hear the gentle spring rain this morning? The hard rain is gone for now.


My blog is the only place in my life that has a clear sense of direction. That's a start. It has occurred to me that a blog takes the form of a totem pole. I hope to see the film "American Carver" today.

As Martin Buber says in your sidebar: 'All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware'.

Good ol' Bob.

I wonder if Dylan was a protagonist in a Hardy novel, as that picture might suggest?

Here is a very fine movie to watch on your computer:
Sita Sings The Blues
It's an animated version of The Ramayana. Beautiful and delightful to watch.
