I’m not as thrilled with myself as I used to be.

The Witness

The Witness

Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining wilderness be destroyed; if we permit the last virgin forests to be turned into comic books and plastic cigarette cases; if we drive the few remaining members of the wild species into zoos or to extinction; if we pollute the last clear air and dirty the last clean streams and push our paved roads through the last of the silence . . .
Wallace Stegner

Do You Believe In The Westworld?

Do You Believe In The Westworld

I don’t like saying this, but I think we’re a bad species, and the sooner we get off this planet, the better.
Farley Mowat



When God, disgusted with man, 
Turned towards heaven. 
And man, disgusted with God, 
Turned towards Eve, 
Things looked like falling apart. 

But Crow . . Crow 
Crow nailed them together, 
Nailing Heaven and earth together – 

So man cried, but with God’s voice. 
And God bled, but with man’s blood. 

Then heaven and earth creaked at the joint 
Which became gangrenous and stank – 
A horror beyond redemption. 

The agony did not diminish. 

Man could not be man nor God God. 

The agony 




Crying: ‘This is my Creation,’ 

Flying the black flag of himself. 

Ted Hughes, Crow Blacker Than Ever

Dirty Three – Everything Is Fucked (live)



It was the time of year, the time of day, for a small insistent sadness to pass into the texture of things. Dusk, silence, iron chill. Something lonely in the bone.
Don DeLillo, White Noise

A Howling At Twilight

A Howling At Twilight

It’s a shadowy world out there, and unseen things murmur and scuttle under the leaves of fact. Those who understand this are better able to understand their own vision, and understanding our vision is part of understanding wolves.
Peter Steinhart, The Company Of Wolves

A new painting, finished. See it’s progress here, here and here.
