SLEEPIN' ON A HOLLOW LOG
ART FRAMER / 22 / FEMINIST / SAN FRANCISCO

Yayoi Kusama in her New York studio, 1960.
what I was thinking today
is that art has always been a survival tool for me
I’m USING art, I don’t think of myself as an artist before I think of myself as a person
and if what I’m making isn’t art anymore
I don’t really care
because I’m doing what I need to to survive in my own mind

Pleiades.
Y si el anhelo te lleva a navegar en mares tormentosos,cuando las Pléyades huyan del poderoso Orióny se hundan en las brumosas profundidadesy todos los borrascosos vientos rujan,no sigas entonces con tu barco en el oscuro marsino, como te pido, recuerda trabajar en tierra. -Hesíodo
…..
"And if longing seizes you for sailing the stormy seas, when the Pleiades flee mighty Orion and plunge into the misty deep and all the gusty winds are raging, then do not keep your ship on the wine-dark sea but, as I bid you, remember to work the land."
(HESIOD, Works and Days 618-23)
