the transformation of waste

Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison
Perhaps these characters would be at home in Emmet Gowin's industrial landscapes?
They surely are living in the wasteland. And it appears they are gathering material towards their transformations.

No artists could better present the visceral pain of the alienation and isolation.

Occasionally that state of mind has moments of beauty, of clarity.

If we are artists or writers or people who live in our imagination, we try to

duplicate those high sensation moments in ways that are very harmful to us.

Be forwarned: any act that selfharms or destroys you,

is only the dark disease muttering in your ear.

You will get through. It is only your mind that is tricking you.

There are others of us who who are in the life you are in.

You are not alone.

Get up.

Get out of bed.

Drink some water.

Open the window.
