Traditional silver emulsion fibre print
from photographic paper that belonged to an artist who is now dead
and the paper (his entire lifetime cache)
that almost was thrown into the dumpster

How long before it runs out?

The Palimpsest Handby kevissimo

"where fire and knives have failed
or the casting of April’s relics
onto the invisible shores of Paris
brought back in its tides 
only scented unyielding memory 

it took you of the wednesday eyes and august hands
to wrap circling and breath 
over the face of this story
to erase (or try) the broken trace carved by a clumsy hand

Cicero in exile
and hearts led blind to the killing shed
in this long long season of dying
written and written again the staying of the blade
that never falls yet hangs damocles and taunting
as her pen carves "soon…soon…"

but now gently you write
as the paper thread breaks
and the tethered orbit lifts finally 
out into the desert painted sky”

And in the random ways of late all night meanderings through old imagery….Here is Jim Belushi shooting me shooting Jim Belushi shooting Forest Whitaker. 

This happened at about 3AM on a terrible film on which I was an assistant editor and had no idea why I was on set at this hour. 

The shoot was stalled, so Jim decided to entertain the crew and grabbed the set photographer’s camera and started shooting whatever was entertaining. Forest played it up and I kind of participated in a weird kind of awe at these two legends just creating something fun for the sake of a crew who had worked past their breaking point. This moment was only for us. 

But I got pictures. 
And here they are…
