We are able to confirm existence because of color, shades, shapes, form, images, which give meaning to our being.

Michael Stevenson has the blog The HOBBLEHOY.
Recently he posted a The Irish Times review of Rhiannon Gidden’s 
new album with Francesco Turrisi, “They’re Calling Me Home.

We first became aware of Giddens about 15 years ago as one of the founding members of the country,
blues, and old-time music band Carolina Chocolate Drops, where she is the lead singer, fiddle, and
banjo player. In 2008, we attended the annual Houston iFest where local and international musicians and the
“iFest New Artist of the Year,” the Carolina Chocolate Drops, were scheduled to appear.

Since then, this very talented musician and her unique artistry continue to blossom.

“For nearly a decade, Giddens has been heralded as a luminary in the world of Americana,
and for some time, she was one of the few African-American faces represented.”
— American Songwriter

There are no words for a voice that evokes so much complexity of emotion.
This music and video will transform you into a different place. — kenne

Abstract Art — What Do You See?   Leave a comment

Abstract Art — Photo-Artistry by kenne

What do you see there?

A bird’s nest?

A hand holding

A women’s breast?

Naked bodies dancing?

An old man sitting 

Drunkenly on a barstool?

But, does it really matter

For time will remove the filters.

Cactus Blossom Art   Leave a comment

Cactus Blossom — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The blossom opens and opens,

till it is no bigger than nature allows.

At darkness, the blossom embraces

its parts as in bed,

two sleeping lovers.

Shades Of Gray — Photo-Artistry by kenne

In the youth of spring

the river runs freely

between a cleavage —

two breasts flowering.

 

In the age of winter

the river runs dry

light between shadows

fainter, fainter, fainter —

as the fire burns out.

I have been walking the trails along the Tanque Verde Wash for over ten years,
taking many photos of the art and still have no idea who is the artist(s) —
for me, it’s a mystery.

Gil Scott-Heron — “A junkie walking through the twilight”   Leave a comment

This post is from May 2011 and, for some strange reason, never has had any views. I love the words, rhythm, and soul of Gil’s music.

“The Constitution, a noble piece of paper would free society,
It struggled but then died in vain
And now Democracy is ragtime on the corner
Hoping for rain
It’s been hoping for some rain.”

Yes, we keep hoping for some rain in a desert of despair!

 “a genius and a junkie.”
. . . more.

. . . at least he lived 62 years. I love this man of feeling, his words his soulful voice!

“Direction is so much more important than speed.” Or said another way;
“Sometimes being low is the best way to reach your goal,
just think about what you may learn on the way.”

Snake In The Tanque Verde Wash   1 comment

A Rock Art Snake In The Tanque Verde Wash — Images by kenne

The creative people living near the Tanque Verde wash keep doing their thing, this time in the wash rather than alongside the wash.
To create a rock art snake with rocks this size, the creator(s) would need to carry rocks from fifty or more yards away.
This rock art snake in the wash is located about a mile west of most of the art previously posted on this blog,
just east of the Craycroft Road bridge where the wash runs into the Rillito River.
