The NAVY BLUE series is my falling / rising work
– the first explorations without my talisman, my tuning fork:
the cosmic
Jaspar Obi.
And, my first explorations with “Frankie and Stein” – learning to walk.
And ,the love I know in my blood.
Jaspar is present as the FIRST light!

Jaspar

has defiantly defied

the bone cancer

for over a calendar year

with

his remarkable, fierce, and sweet

life force…

and, now

the divinity within him

is calling his name.

X

I see.

I have been

listening, listening, listening

to

Jaspar’s

elegant, courageous, tender

body&soul.

I accept, honoring, following his soul’s lead.

X
X
X
X
X
X

The

BLESSING CEREMONY

is dedicated to

the

pure sacred radiant

GRACE LOVE

of our

4legged

guardian angels

our lions at our heart’s gate.

X

X

X

X

X

Chartreuse

is the color of

JASPAR OBI’s

soul:

THE

BRIGHT

PREVAILING

KISS OF SPRINGTIME

NOTE:

dear friend sent the link 
(embedded below)
on the JASPER stone to me
after
my JASPAR crossed over
on
Veteran’s Day 11 November 2019.

X

X

I chose to spell his name JASPAR.

X

I was astounded that the information of the JASPER stone
mirrored my
JASPAR’s soulpresence.

The

BLESSING CEREMONY

was

poignant

powerful

enchanting!

X

All K9s

were given two presents:

green glow collars

– running / playing / glowing,

  and

special treats

– small milkbones with peanut butter

wrapped in aluminum foil

to look like shining silver bonestars!

ALL 2leggeds

were given two presents:

 steaming hot green tea

and

 green glow ‘tails’ to wear!

X

X

Many many many

K9s arrived!!!

 

X

Once ‘knighted’

with their 

green glow collars,

Jaspar’s amazing K9 friends

spontaneously

created

blessed energy

boundless JOY

and

a beautiful memoir

of the

precious gift

of

our

sentient / “metacognitive”

4legged

guardian angels.

WONDER.

AWE.

SACRED.

AN indelible CELEBRATION

of the reliable tender loving kindness of the

‘BLACK ICE: LILTING’

NOTE:
each work of the BLACK ICE series
oscillates / dances / shifts / reveals
constantly
in relation to
 the specific light source – from ambient to direct
to the light’s positioning –  the actual angle 
and
to the movement of the viewer.

X

X

All of my work refuses/denies the camera’s eye.

X

The revelation, the experience,
occurs with an actual encounter – presence.

X

X

The beauty of one’s beloved is
the improvisational/sacred listening
of/ for/ to/ with
the beloved.

On March 19, 1965,

and
Larry Bunker on drums.

The trio played two 35 minute sets,
including most of the songs from their just-completed album, Trio ’65.

“Five,” by Bill Evans
“Elsa,” by Earl Zindars
“Summertime,” by George Gershwin
“Come Rain or Come Shine,” by Harold Arlen
“My Foolish Heart,” by Victor Young
“Re: Person I Knew,” by Bill Evans
“Israel,” by Johnny Carisi
“Five,” by Bill Evans (reprise)

Thank you
Anthony Cox
for yet another
voyage/transport/oduh-see
of

sonic river waters.
