I needed to do this for a long time: drive a long ways off from here. And Cathy’s family reunion the perfect destination. Six hour drive to a place I’ve never been and back again. I’m not fully healed yet, but we’ve been isolated in this forest since my spine broke in 2014. High time to test the road, and the spine.

Month ago I had a bad fall from a ladder, that appeared to be healing. Conditions seemed good, if not great, leading up to the long drive. Then, five days before we were to take off I wrenched my back. Impossible to hide my condition from Cathy, through dark hours I struggled over taking the step back to a life of freedom and a return to adventure.

Back when travel and adventure were like the skin that encompasses me. I’d revel in cross country hippy-trips with my dear friend Artie. Visiting every major east coast city with the ever unflappable Doreen. Cath and I, over a month’s time stepped foot in every town and city across Florida. Once Jimmy and I climbed into my customized van Pegasus, filled her tank and just headed west. We played Gerry Rafferty’s BAKER STREET, and only that song on the CD player until we ran out of gas somewhere upstate. As sunrise poured through the windshield we laughed and we laughed and we laughed and we laughed. We laughed so hard that we cracked the glass!

But here I am now a trapped invalid struggling to give my wife a time away from chickens, endless Georgia pines and howling coyote to see people; family and friends. Many she hasn’t seen in a long time, a few not in over 50 years. I needed to do this. To step up and out of isolation. Face freedom and adventure once more.

Unfortunately, after six hours on the road I found myself chained to a motel bed wracked with pain. I insisted Cathy attend the reunion made so much better because all the out of towners stayed at the same motel. While I got to watch HBO and fight with my horrible pain. The ride home seemed like an endless crawl off a bloody battle field.

Maybe gone are the days of freedom and adventure.

One Thanksgiving eve Jimmy locked himself into my florist refrigerator and froze to death. On the day my last best friend Jimmy died I climbed into my van and drove till it ran out of gas somewhere on the outer banks of Georgia. Without pause the CD player rang out Beth Hart’s SKIN. video.search.yahoo.com/search/…

Sunset poured like a tsunami over the vehicle as I cried and I cried and I cried and I cried. I cried like a baby whose momma died. I searched my soul for possible reason over and over and over  and over. I searched like a broken hearted girl through a patch of clover. And the pain then as now is like blisters within my skin.

 

 

Beth Hart - Skin Lyrics

 

Album: Screamin' For My Supper

 

Screamin' For My Supper

Skin

She combs her hair & cleans her face

Closes the door & kneels to pray

It don't matter that she's alone

Beast or dragons she's going home

If i lay me down

Bow my head unto the ground

Would you heal my skin

& these blisters within my skin

She found today

So hard to say

I sweat the sheets

Too tired to play

& it don't matter

Cause I'm still alive

Beast or dragons

Won't make me hide

Another way

I just cant find the words to say

Cold where i lay

It's cold where i lay

Bones cracked to clay

A killer's in the way

Hot is my shame

Fire pulls my veins

For never is my name

Forever in my shame

Holy come heal me

Solely, delivery.

Almost Balanced
Just a tad too much negative space. But then if you reverse space by color ... Just a tad too much positive space. Wonder if you can get the space design elements equal; would you see anything but 2 colors? The use of paste to build focal paths to keep the eye going round and round inside the image might be a bit too round and round?
Such are the things that go through my mind as I copy / paste / resize / rotate and fudge here and there.

To get a proper image of Joe's life we need to begin with a New York City setting during the summer of 1967. Joe and his close friend Arthur Turco busked the street corners of Greenwich Village. Arthur wrote the music and Joe wrote the lyrics. They sang to Artie's guitar while Joe also painted for hand outs. Soon after, back home in West Babylon, Long Island, they formed a rock band named SHADES OF DESTINY. It drew local popularity. But his father enticed the boy into the "family" business. Joe grew to become one of the most sought after memorial designers of all time.
     Joe spent the first 44 years of his life professionally designing and cutting stone as a monument builder and architect. An interest in computers and programming afforded him early exposure to CAD and he developed his own CAD program (OurCAD, 1991.) His interest in the world of computers and electronic communications lead him to be the first in his industry to build on the Net (1981).
     During the 1970's his interest in CAD computing and networking lead him to form an art studio called ADSTONE Designs. It was, for a time, the third largest art studio in the memorial trade. But the Internet and web mastering evolved Joe's stone cutting career. He created and built ADSTONE.net, which began as an Internet domain to service the Death Care industry and, at its height, had more access points than AOL (1994).
     During this time Joe established  MyDrawingBoard. MyDrawingBoard is actually the original ADSTONE Designs online and the world's oldest and largest archive of Commemorative CAD drawings. Until his retirement in 2015, he remained the only webmaster for the site and one of its largest contributors of artwork.  It is widely accepted that Joe is the most prolific writer on the Net with over 13 gigs of webpages and design work created by him alone. MyDrawingBoard has archived over 600,000 individual works of art. Close to 12% of the art is his.
Because of the strives in artificial intelligence, CAD designers are no longer required in the stone cutting trades, thus Joe closed MyDrawingBoard and it is presently being republished. The new site will offer all the designs Joe created for free and for historical reference. It it now a portion of Joe’s main website: JoePegasus.com
        This website features mostly Joe's fine art, cartoon and comic work. His many books - both adult and children's books - and all his essays, articles and poetry / lyrics as well as his songs and music videos are all here.
          He and his wife Cathy  reside on their 10 acre farm in  South Carolina.

You're way too talented and interesting for me to just be glancing at; and I'm new at all this jargon as well as navigating this kind of social media.  So let me ask you: Please translate for an old man.."tyvm for the (whatever that little icon is.)"

You have the best day of your year!
