night is a hidden world one of sleep without light we evolved for sleep- how did it come to us what were we doing before sleep night was an extension of day a dark dark extension- not a curtain that closed as the sun set, people ate at night or walked at night without regret or fear perhaps fear with animals lurking under bush but we were always alive with no escape, no soft veined curtain to end ...

lisa quotes (favorites)

First time writing in 10 years or so... thinking about time and life... all these unearthed memories I thought I'd lost. Seeing my earnest lust for life, all the glorious vulnerabilities of youth... an emotional experience to witness once more- a portal into my young heart. Recognizing the romance I still carry with me. Though my life has changed a lot since these early days. All of these road trips and bodies of water... all the luscious crushes. It's time to find this romance again, appreciate the beauty in the glittering grains of sand... I'm going to return here from time to time to track the romance in my life, how I carry it and cherish it, open myself to it... maybe write some painfully sincere poetry... this space is for me. For the sake of old times, I will do a free-write-

the distance between the vibrant fingers of my childhood an awakenings and my dull...

what would I imagine as my perfect place of existence? A day that begins with light hitting my face, drowsy and pleasant, through gentle curtains, place my feet on the wood floor, or a persian rug, kiss the gentle cheek of a book reader, hair askew, lashes heavy, smile breaking through sleep.... closed eyes, standing in the doorway of the kitchen, gentle dawnlight, cool damp morning air. making tea, jars full of vanilla oolong, moroccan mint, jasmine, hibiscus, coconut... stirring in a spoonful of honey- so deep, amber, full of a history of flowers and flying... a slow, thoughtful sip, time expanding, setting down the spoon. a studio warehouse, crumbling floor, dark save for the windows, creating environments, passion. a space for stirring up the intensities in people. emotional landscapes, dark crevices, looming skies, brief moments of light, glowing moments. the one spot of sunlight that...

in a home on a lake, floating and rocking gently, a bed is tied with a rope to the house, and floats alongside, with sheets and comforter and I swim down below the house... into a room filled with antique furniture, desks, bookshelves, all fine and expensive... I collect tiny silver relics about the size of old monopoly pieces from the bottom of the room. the sun sets lavender on my longing.

nine the magical vortex number, a nineteen year with diatoms sparkling in the ocean water, and freckles reflecting starlight. nineteen when my heart beat fast faster, and I feel in love with every place, rushing past fields while listening to the magnetic fields, drawing the people I meet and saying "that girl she may turn in any direction" nineteen years of images and feeling and falling up as I fall asleep every time I brushed my teeth this year I thought of you and how I brushed my teeth for a long time because I knew you were listening and I needed time to think my voice met his at the top of an atrium and we let the silence exist, because it was louder than our voices. nineteen and I still have no wrinkles, I am young young young and I don't trust myself to fall in love with any one. I got bruised on wood floors, I didn't understand my body, I pushed voices out of the bellows of accor...

falling past windows, black and white, the eternal fall in a grayscale world. A spinning reel, until I float to the black cieling and break through layers of insulation. Inside the warehouse, I create clouds, and patches of blue sky, but the concentration required makes me ache. sweet soft sleep, dark rooms and air blows on my face.

The installation would tune into the frequency that channels the connection between the viewer and the collective unconscious. This would be achieved through visual and auditory elements. Underlying themes in the work would be water, depth and dreaming. With water as a metaphor for the subconscious/collective unconscious, the works would be intuitively based, and rich with layers of sound, texture, color, and 3d and 2d design elements (assemblage, collage, moving images, photography, and painting). The piece would entirely envelope the viewer, guiding them through stages of light and darkness, color and monotone, silence, harmony, and cacophony. The installation would have interactive elements to produce sound and image. Ideally, upon emerging from the work, the viewer will feel as if they have connected with their non-physical origin. A crescendo w...

I want to see you tonight, meet me where the light breaks and the cicadas hum and I vibrate with possibility. Meet me underwater with an aqua lung and a smooth tongue. just meet me, and nod your head and look me in the eyes. that's alright. meet me tonight at R.E.M. cycle 5, and don't be late. even in my foggy state I know it's you and I've been waiting through and through. you've penetrated my oceans and I remember how you move. my mind recorded it and it blinks and hums and it's a scratched and popping reel but I can still focus on your face. yeah I'll play it too much and it'll wear to pieces till I can only see you from behind. but your shoulders are newspaper clippings and the ink rubs off onto my fingertips. I'm losing the words.

my chest flutters like a winged brick. I can't hold my breath any longer for yours. the more I peel back the backdrop, the less it makes sense. I dissolve into the woodgrain, and run through its stiff veins, trapped in the walls. why did your eyes close? you couldn't take that channel any longer, the channel that runs between our eyes. You changed it, and the static fills my ears, the frequency blinds me. the sun is not bright enough to lighten the shadows beneath my feet. gravity will take a hold of me, it's greedy embrace and hot breath clouding my vision.

I am the emptiness that cradles your bones the light that reflects on a droplet of water an illusion

he dries a dish. sunlight hitting his eyelids through the mottled glass pane, the wind blows eloquently, I am endless creating, and a vessel that transforms all that passes through it

the prism that breaks the white light into rainbows

I do not stain what I perceive, do not strangle the things that I love, but let them go, to fly upwards, so I may see them spread their glorious wings

as I exhale I feel an intensity, a gut wrenching scream that is hiding in the inner lining of my esophogus, it hides there, my desire to BE to exist in every moment, to experience intense subtleties that arise from the tension between earthly bodies. I long to feel your gravity, not to orbit from miles and miles away, I want to feel your gravity upon my limbs! I want to feel the rain upon my naked limbs, to be touched by something surreal, to see the light glowing through the leaf canopy... I want to dirty my clothing and sink knee deep into life, into death, into rebirth and fear and courage. I want to tango with swaying grass that makes my ankles itch. This need to move, to bite, to kick the leaves into the air- has a lot to do with how pretty I find your face.

there walks a furry yellow bear, its generous clawed paw, soft as a potholder grasps the little fingers of a fair haired boy, who lifts his knees to his chest as he steps over the tall grass. the sweet monster effortlessly lifts the boy onto his shoulders, and the sun hits danny's striped shirt (labeled with a sharpie on the inside, that bleeds through the fabric). It is a blissful chilly day, the smell of fall blackberries and change floats about them. Even the cities can feel it, even the sidewalk and asphalt know that the leaves change. The boy grasps the thick fur between the pair of small horns with both hands, and looks down, as they bumble along, his feet bumping softly against roger's chest with every heavy step. it grows darker and the sky melts like crayons and the wind breathes more audibly through the leaves, sleepy at the end of the day. the chill air makes the bear's fur stan...

the water is pouring in under the door, and we can't keep the current from filling up the house. The rain falls and falls and we can't catch it all in our arms, it is much too sad. we see each other walking in the twilight on that familiar street, on opposite sidewalks, and we meet, hair aflame, but quietly contemplative. secretly full. we walk together, saying nothing, expecting nothing, but thankful. I am in a wooden house with a high atrium ceiling, the woodbeams meeting at a central point. There are six others here and they tell me how to do astral projection. They say that I must close my eyes and become completely still, and focus all of my energy on my heart's center chakra. Then I can feel the movement upwards and I split from my body and float up to the ceiling, and from there I can see my body, and I can see the other people's glowing spirit bodies, and we dance. I find myself ou...

the sky looks gray and blue and like a backdrop, but the peoples faces look exquisitely realized. I observe their detail, and they almost seem too beautiful, glowing with vividness. I pass by them, following the gravel road that breaks between weeds and grass, observing the gorgeous photos in my mind.

I rolled out of bed, on to the wood floor, and I looked about, my eyes fogged over with sleep and delusion, but I opened them and reached out to find truth. I walked until I found your face, and you shook your head and said that I would not find anything in you. I straightened the blurs until there was no white space in between.

it is night time, I am looking around when I realize that I am dreaming. I am looking at Bill Murray. I become very lucid. We decide to go flying together. It is a starry night. We flap our arms like wings and he gives me the courage to fly. He starts to doubt his ability and starts to sink, but I stay focused and keep flying higher, past trees. I have another dream, and I brag to the people in it about flying with Bill. Scene change. I am with Athens friends at a party. There are piles of shirts for reconstructing. I can't pick the right one. colors colors colors, lots and lots of people, birds eye views.

a gray sky is one that whistles and hums like paper and glass, a stirring pressure mix that is wary and humble, cold cold it holds the sun in damp sheets. Looking up up up and so far up it is a moldy cold sheet flapping in the wind. standing below the bridge, the ragged humble bumbles watch it blow. When their shoes talk, they tape their mouths shut with layers and layers of electrical tape. Every shirt has known their chests for day after day, the fibers have been through water- rain, oceans, vomit, tears, sweat, and city puddles. They were kids once, rough and tumble quiet kids who knew what gravel felt like. Fighters, bloody eyes and knuckles and knees and chipped teeth. He was in love once, a girl with a lavender ribbon and smooth hands that never talked or ate. But she whistled in the wind like a blade of grass, and her eyes were like grey skies. She disappeared behind a dumpster and ...

He was a secret writer, and now he has been snuffed out for his beauty. A flame that would ignite the souls of the city. So she cries. moon milke, wet and sweet, and we desire what we do not understand. The magic. suppose I were to offer you my hands, and you were to take them- would that be enough? I think it would. it would be enough to pretend that the tree I pass on drayton st. is a lover from a past life that waits for me. So I acknowledge it.

The carrots are growing like crazy and even starting to shoot up their flowers stalks due to all of our ups and downs in temperature. This recipe comes from the Savory Market on James Island and we LOVE them. They can hang out in your fridge marinating for two weeks, but are ready in an hour too. Eat ‘em just like a hot dog, but with no meat or soy! Top with braised mustard greens or fresh lettuce.

You need:

6-10 meduim sized carrots, those about the size of a traditional hot dog, washed and with ends cut off.

For the marinade, whisk together

1 cup soy sauce or tamari

1 cup water

1/2 cup rice vinegar

1/4 cup sesame oil

1 tbsp chopped pickled or fresh ginger

1 tbsp chopped fresh garlic

it's so simple. I am a breathing organism that endures all sorts of weather. It is cold, I get on my bike and I pedal through the air, my fingers go numb, and my mind is as clear as the sky. my heart beats fast, I love the way it felt to have his arm around my side, and I can tell he doesn't want me that much. Nothing sticks, it passes through like the air in my lungs, and I feel empty, and bright. Do I feel? The lights change and I can see them so I pedal. I make it hear to there and it is all quite beautiful and brisk. perhaps you could never love a place like this, maybe it's only aesthetic, maybe you're looking for something "real" / but I can only tell you that what you're looking for / you are a blind man. my heart beats fast and it all falls through, it all falls up and here here here and whyever do I need a there? but there is always there. here is passing through, like the air in ...

turqoise boxes with photos in side, I turn them over, underneath they say "do not open at all costs" I peel back the paper, and I find a stream of salty tears flows gently from the box, they roll down my wrists. When I open the box, a tinny echoing metal lullaby begins, the gears turn, a sweet golden sunlight emerges, glowing from deep inside. I immerse my fingertips in the water, and slowly peer inside, beneath the water are sunset colored koi...

The works explore the mysteries of the self. They delve into the interaction between what lies inside with what is outside, and the nature of barriers. They focus on the synergy of the internal and the external. These pieces were an attempt to reveal the illusory nature of barriers- that our bodies are not cages, but vessels.

sometimes the music gets so loud inside that my eyes open inside, I see inside, there is a lot of darkness, but there are echoing rememberances, distorted picturescapes and soundscapes, there are poets of the night, the ones that stay up creating artficial worlds, that play out in a place far away, the actors are somewhat disturbed with an overwhelming sense of deja vu, deja ete, and they lift their hand, invisible strings pulling up the wrist, as they stare up at the sky, boundless- or perhaps a simple backdrop? The poets of the night, they have wire frame beds, with tattered baby blankets, and cold hardwood floors, they sleep in attics, keeping a little window open with a waterlogged book..old poets are waterlogged books- much too full of inflated prose and emotion, holding up the window so that others can see out... they cannot forget what others seem to have forgotten, glazed eyes, wal...

I dreamt of tiny figurines, porcelain robin's eggs tinier than my pinkie nail, so minuscule and breathtaking, shining. Little men glazed red, tiny shiny sheep. they all fit in a little box. There is a cathedral, with a confession room, the stained glass glows a holy blue, and there is draping that is endearing and comforting, like a childhood fort. The sunlight glows through the window, and I can remember those Sundays, the sitting, standing, kneeling, my dad and I adding the numbers of the listed hymns; we waited, staring at the vaulted wooden ceiling suspended yards above us. The air outside was crisp, and the sun shone ravishingly on our shoulders. All of the people I met outside the doors after service, the adults who said I looked like my mother, and my brother and I would run about with the other shiny shoe clad children... before we went out to breakfast, buffets of renewable eggs a...
