1092 (enchiridion)

"97 suggestions"  page 3

(the most obvious of pages)


  1. 11.25 X 15 inches 90 lb Arches HP w/c paper
    graphite/watercolor pencils/gouache

    "97 suggestions" is a 104 page book detour
    detour... detour... detour...
    scarecrow HEY scarecrow

  2. I've been liking the trip.
    I'm really liking the detour.

    1. it is not a conventional detour
      it is long and scenic
      and likes being taken

    2. GPS negates detours
      scenic effects faithful
      to the empty space
      not taken

    3. Two spaces diverged in a yellow wood,
      And sorry I could not be in both
      And be one viewer, long I stood
      And looked into one as far as I could
      To where it bent in the undergrowth;

      Then looked at the other, just as fair,
      And having perhaps the better claim
      Because it was greasy and wanted wear,
      Though as for that the passing there
      Had worn them really about the same,

      And both that morning equally lay
      In light no step had trodden black.
      Oh, I kept the first for another day!
      Yet knowing how way leads on to way
      I doubted if I should ever come back.

      I shall be telling this with a sigh
      Somewhere ages and ages hence:
      Two spaces diverged in a wood, and,
      I stepped into the one less a lullaby,
      And that has made all the difference.

      except for the GPS significance

  3. Q: siri, which is the path less travelled?
    A: the one less a lullaby

    1. Q: SIRI, how do I get to space?
      A: You're already there!
