red, white and blue graffiti

I love this graffiti. I hope that the owner of the garage will leave it there.
I am feeling spacey and my imagination is working vividly so that I feel a bit restless and pulled in many directions, creatively. This is always difficult for me. I am not single-minded in my creativity, and in today's ultra-specialized culture that is something suspicious. We much prefer the idea of a composer who is consumed with writing music every waking moment rather than a composer who would often much rather be drawing or writing or taking photographs or improvising.
When I was in the first grade I won a county-wide art contest with my picture of a horse with colored teeth. My mom had told me that you could infer a horse's age from the teeth, and I interpreted that to mean that the teeth were multicolored. At the time we had a horse and I should have known. But it was not the last time my imagination created my reality. It still does to some extent, and I try to hang on to that.
Tomorrow I have to write a short piece for men's chorus. I have to buy a new ink cartridge for my printer so that I can print my tax forms. It will be a busy week. If my manic energy persists I will coast right through.
