Run Your Own Race

I try to construct a picture in which shapes, spaces, colors,
form a set of unique relationships, independent of any
subject matter. At the same time I try to capture and translate
the excitement and emotion aroused in me by the impact
with the original idea.
~~Milton Avery

Nice guys are mostly like non-descript guys and not so nice
guys - the personality is what you see first. Some nice guys are
nice just to be liked (or loved). Other nice guys use it to cover
a weasel's determination but eventually you run into the nice
guy who is because his cleaned up life affords him to add to,
not take away from the life surrounding him. If you get to
taste that and still feel OK about being a prick to get what you
want, then go back and board another train. What you emote
is what you morph into by default, influenced by the desires
of that other part of your soul where she designs sweetness.
The bitterness from Joan Allen's rage in Upside of Anger is a
reminder of the effect of betrayal - I'll take the sweet one,
thank you. Posted by Picasa
