Transcript 'I am a Rather Soliraiy v4rrisr...* dear people—- here's one of my drawing-poems for you—hope you can use it!* i read your last issue—on community--which, by the way, i thought was very interesting--i think PBT is "improving"! i hope to see lots of response to the next issue!! i have been in touch with the women who give us "womanspirit"—-in fact, i did the front cover—it's a beautiful blue!--of this spring equinox issue! also i've had some illustrations published in "Women: a journal of liberation" i really enjoy doing "work" like this (actually, it's more like a true vocation— my work is seamless with my pleasure... ideally!) i am a rather solitary artist in many ways—i would love to see a space (a womanspace) here for art; a feminist art community!...it's difficult for me to verbalize intellectually what my work is about—i hope that it is "self-evident"...it is about the beyond within, a reaching into the roots and branches of my experience as a woman, for me, these drawings are teachers, healing sources...and they exist on many levels... they are roadmaps, telling me of where i have been, am, and have yet to go...they are deeply personal, or they address to the seer that part of ourselves which we only intuit, dream...what i aim for is this vital essence, the marrow of self... the old phrase comes to mind, "the way in is the way out is the way in"...to infinity...!' want to touch the, what i conceive of as--spiritual--in us—that which to me transcends time, place... what remains is the eternal energy source, the one note of the song which continues on...i paint and draw states of being, inner landscapes (heartlands)...it is a geography which we are beginning to explore... i generally prefer to draw, as it's more immediate, my hand-—heart can dance more freely...but i also like to paint, i am currently sharing a studio with another artist-—but am open to sharing a studio (i'm poor, unfortunately) space with a feminist artist...know of anybody who might be interested in gathering together for a feminist art collective? due to the fact that i am also employed 8-5 (yuck) and my evening hours spent painting—i have little time to get out and around, (maybe it's just me being weird, but i got cold vibes from ursula's...i find it difficult to project in a noisy group situation, don't like to drink much, or play pool, much to my chagrin!...but i have other pleasures!) but, the need is sincere and felt way deep—to share and communicate with friends...and i mean those who can accept the many facets of me...i have felt some rejection by the houston gay community because i'm married, to a male, horrors of horrors..., openly bisexual (the "old having your cake and eat the ice cream too" attack) and my cultural tap-roots are in, dare i use such a trite and well trodden phrase—"head" society...even tho i'm acutely (chronic, in that it's persistent!) poor, i believe in color!!** anyway, i've gotten rude stares (mostly from women, curiously.)...but, such is the price for wearing your heart on your sleeves and jeans! if you like the drawing, i hope you'll get in touch, i'm open to communication! do you have need of a "nonsalaried" artist—i'd be only too happy to contribute my dreams, hands, work if you would have them...i have felt for a long time that it would be a harmonious "mingling" ...(but haven't sent in before because of procrastination—which is getting cured!) i'd really like to learn about doing a magazine—i don't know lay-out, etc. and could enjoy discovering—even the shit-work.* well..pi ease get a copy of womanspirit—it's a good magazine... high spirits, all! beyond the words and lines, i hope our spirits melt together., p.s. alison, are you out there? hello to you!! hope you are liking the country!! if it feels good, get in touch!!
