Drill Drawing on Wood

This is a project in the works. I wanted to share it in this phase because I think it's interesting. It's a drawing that I did on a piece of wood with a power drill. Next I'll paint on it perhaps. It's 18"x24"

Good Night

Tired, tired world...
Jaded, faded, sickly sound
Of lonely voices in a crowd--
The halls of possibility
Crowded with profanity
And jealousy deliberately
Feeds on our disguise.

Tired, tired world...
Mired by the whirl
Of nonchalant misgivings
And contaminated pride
As overdosed necessity
Bleeds our hearts until we're dry
And stoic substitution
Sterilizes passion,
Gently carving out what was inside.

Tired, tired world...
Independent meaning
In an isolated mind--
Room for warmth and wonder
Narrowed to a slice
Proportionate to desire
Or a sparkle in the eye
And lost on empty windows
And limited by sight,
Frivolous assumptions,
And complicated lies...

Waive our own humanity
And sever the ties that bind
And hide inside ourselves
And create our own outside,
Exclusively inclusive
Of whatever we don't deny--
Self contained societies
With artificial skies
Locked away in solitude,
Drifting silently through time--
Secure in our fragility,
Convinced of our virility
In a tired, tired world
As everything passes by...

Good night.

Charcoal on paper
by Jason Loya

"To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the regions of childhood vision and dream." ~Giorgio de Chirico

Survival Camp - for Real

Sleeping on rocks, starving for days, hiking miles and miles up 2000 feet of mountain? My brother in law, Nikhil recently completed Survival Camp. After reading about it in his blog, Some Thoughts and Photos, I could not believe he made it! It sounds like the most grueling, trying experience one could pay for. As I read his account and looked at the pictures, I felt at once an urge to try it for myself and a comfortable satisfaction with a vicarious experience through someone who had actually done it. Either way, it made me appreciate my bed and my toilet paper like never before. The interpersonal stuff is fascinating and the loneliness, profound. Be sure to check out this blog and be sure to scroll down and start at day one. What a journey!

Legal Eagle Webbery

Ok - so the web site that I just built for my dad's law office is not as exciting as the title of this blog but it's nice to look at! is the link that will get you there. He's great at what he does but with all the red tape for attorney web sites and advertising, it's not always that easy to convey such a thing.

Anyway, I used Apple's iWeb to create the site and to host it. I made the wood grain in Photoshop which was a fun process in itself. I'll add more to it in the future as I navigate the ethical and legal maze of something otherwise as simple as a lawyer's web site. Have a great day!
