the madness continues

Even Jide and Cinque are feeling the September Madness (Cinque got a precocious start). Nothing going on in the studio except bone-wrenching artistic failure but reading this paragraph by Takuan Soho helped me get back on track:
As for Kannon, to what purpose would it have a thousand arms attached to one body? This form is made with the intent of pointing out to men that if their immovable wisdom is let go, even if a body have a thousand arms, every one will be of use.
I compose this haiku in Takuan's honor:
The struggling artist
Finally sees shoelaces
All entangled. Duh!
New (to me) art blogs: Fresh Paint, Zeke's Gallery, Modern Kicks, Proprioception, Thinking About Art, Rodcorp, The Space In Between, Carol Es's Bloggie, MugsyTheBear, Aesthesis. I think I missed someone. I owe a lot of you people e-mails. I will rectify all in the near future. Right after the madness leaves.
And this morning I received word about a new magazine, Miami Art Guide, a rather smart-looking effort that I have not evaluated in person yet. Nice website though.
Oh, and remember that arts effort I was talking about at one point? It's about to happen.
Miami begins again in September.
