The other day i was sitting on the "veranda," smoking a Punch Habana and sipping some of "Mu's Finest" with orange juice and cranberry juice, and just thinkin'. I watched a squirrel navigating the immense trees across from me. The squirrel was fearless and sure. It would scurry to the edge of a branch, easily 100 feet from the ground. I watched the branch rock under the weight of the squirrel and sway with the growing breeze. The squirrel chose its movements carefully. It didn't fall. The squirrel trusted its own abilities. Not out of arrogance but experience. I accepted that that has to be me. The gift of knowledge from Nature.
This is the the halfway point of War. A little double page action.

"I just wanna tell stories!"
Their faces twisted in response to his tiresome refrain. They knew what followed.
"I just need my audience to GET me, but they never seem to. What's wrong with how I do it?"
And those among him, those who truly knew him shook their head with the simple constant answer.
They understood that all he had to do was stop telling what he wanted to do and just do it.
So he shut his mouth.

Feminie Mystique Series: Thinking of HER. acrylic on bristol board. January 2007.
I thought I was David, but I turned out to be Daniel. I'm sorry more of that biblical reference expressed through a lens from Joseph Campbell.
I thought I was a decadent Chosen One, reveling in HIS grace, when I am actually wallowing in the belly of the whale. Evading and avoiding Destiny. Sound familiar?
Thats what I mean. And i really FELT All-Star Superman #12. And as I'm reading all things that are useless and unpure on the pages turn to ashes, so do I exprience it on me. All that is left after the fire is what is strongest and true. But the fire HURTS! CHANGE avoided always does. So I ENDURE, EXPERIENCE, UNDERSTAND AND (of true GRACE) graciously TRANSCEND.
