    1. Very cool! I was meditating on old westerns for an overall visual theme of sorts– But Honest Abe is pretty close to that era! Thanks for the support, take care!

    1. Thanks, Stacy Michelle! This was something that just kind of happened while I was messing around in the art studio one day– I wanted to build a story of sorts around it, but that would go against the very nature of the ‘final messages’ series… Maybe I’ll return to it one of these days and expand upon it.

  1. Somehow

    Luo found out about a chance to sing for
    Myanmar’s poor. She sang the Jasmine and
    Embroidered Wallet from her Hanzhou province.
    Her smile bespeaks last hour’s visit, five days
    abroad, cradled, swinging, laughing with music
    and stabs at Mandarin, while unjealous wives
    fix their hair, aware that spoken flow creates
    great passion after Manli leaves, the old man
    remains. Somehow the spirit of Tang Dynasty
    poetry is shy tonight, a new moon, so dark,
    hidden by clouds, coolly whistling through
    skies visible to beings we don’t know about,
    the rabbit is out there, but how can I offer a
    hand or a finger, a mouth or a toe to this
    late-spring flower who persists, as a human
    while cousins wither, and father reminds her
    that life’s many sweet moments are tempered
    abruptly, even as the reflections shimmer on
    the West Lake. They come, she now tells me, to
    dance, act, perform, laugh, embrace, renew, live.
