We’re in lockdown and I’m into a burst of work on the blog. Addictive. In one of the first posts I took all morning to sniff out art stuff:
I’ve just sent up two posts, one on van Gogh and another on Egon Schiele, they are related. Without Van Gogh, no Scheile.

Small Graces Mapping a Route of Beauty to the Heart of the World

Submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of

Has a whole section on Participation Mystique and I-Thou.
Below is an enticing quote. The reason I’m attracted to this work is that I think that the very relationships we are discussing here, participatory, with the ego dropped, with heightened awareness of self and other, are also the relationships that are needed between therapist and client, and partners in a relationship. It’s not well grasped: they are vital to knowing each other. We can’t know others at this level of consciousness without participating in the relationship with full role reversal.

When I finished my ThousandSketches project I wanted to continue making sketches and blogging them. I created In this moment… My art blog In addition to my sketches I added thoughts about art, and a lot of links to art I like and bits of info about artists.

I am looking forward to the Apple Tablet. The main thing I’d want to be able to do is to use it instead of my Toshiba M200 for sketching. I did a Thousand Sketches 2006-7 on the Toshiba M200 which has a Wacom style pen only touch screen. Worked well for me. It is pressure sensitive, and highly responsive. So I hope the Tablet will have something like a pen or better.
A long iWishlist follows.
