last night i attended a dharma talk with Lama Surya Das. interesting guy.
more entertaining then i imagined he would be. 2 hours certainly wasn’t enough to fully
touch all the areas of his knowledge of buddhism, but it was just enough to allow me
to visualize time in a different way. using horizontal hand gestures he spoke about the linear
aspect of time, and then gesturing his hands vertically he mentioned the present moment,
and going even further he pinpointed this exact point in time, and from there it all opened up.
hmmmm…in can sit in that place for awhile; fully content. my mind exploding into a beautiful
array of visuals.
the talk was titled, “buddhist standard time”
Ed Fuentes of KLRU TV and his camera guy Jarren just left my studio. He came here to interview me. He is doing a 30 minute piece, to be aired sometime in February,
about GenerousArt.org as part of the Arts In Context series. He is interviewing 6 of the generous art artists; Jen Balkan, Jennifer Chenoweth, Virginia Fleck
and myself amongst them. I was seriously nervous, I hope it didn’t show too much. You think talking about my work would be the easiest thing in the world,
but somehow knowing it is all being recorded changes everything. I’ll be sure to post when it is being aired so we all can have a good laugh at this nervous nellie.
(I hope my arms didn’t look fat).
Big thanks to Jennifer Chenoweth once again for all her hard work!
