Philip Roth Quote

This Phillip Roth quote is still resonating with me as I prepare the Draft solo Work version of this piece.

"The world is full of people who go around believing that they’ve got you or your neighbor figured out. There really is no bottom to what is not known. The truth about us is endless".

 

The poem that started it all

The Floating City

Even as I sit in this chair, the city rocks. I am on the boat again or did I ever leave?

Shifting and settling underneath me It tugs my heart and mind back to this place…

The floating city There is no escape. I am no longer trying to get away I am here When I am here, I am not sure what is real and what is a figment of this floating world.

Un –realized / realized dreams Open dialogues of days gone by The in-between The middle The muck

I sit and wait I actually try to move but I don’t But I am...you see The floating city is constantly moving

I created this when I was recovering from my first breast cancer surgery in July and it seems to hit me in a lot of ways. I will just post it and you tell me what you see or feel. All of the images are from Art In America magazines from 2010.

I feel strong connections with this piece and The Floating City.
