In the Heat of Travel

On a side street in Santorini, I'm putting
my tired feet in a fish tank.
That's what I'm doing.

Postcards from Muni

I always found San Francisco's sometimes beleaguered transit system, MUNI (Municipal Railway), fun to ride and an excellent resource for images.

The Photography of Jon Rendell

Taxes, Bagels, and the Alphaverse
Everything Everywhere All at Once

This film may well be the most scintillating, as well as the most bewildering in its sheer profusion of images with a generous side of kung fu to help the bewilderment go down.

Miles David Moore

Everything Everywhere At Once | reviewed my Miles David Moore | Scene4 Magazine | August 2022


The Secret to Superhuman Strength
Bettencourt3Who cares if life has an ultimate meaning or is extruded from a divinity or (equally nonsensical) is an outgrowth of a sentient energy permeating the universe?
Michael Bettencourt

Spinning Wheel
Arthur Danin Adler | Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.comNo one likes to be called 'dumb'... uneducated, okay, because it's a fact. 'Ignorant', maybe, because it has the feel of being temporary. But 'dumb' is like truth serum.
Arthur Danin Adler

The Waste Land
Les Marcott | Scene4 Magazine | www.scene4.comIt's been a brutal summer here in central Texas. Heat, drought, tempers flaring, prices rising, water restrictions, wildfires, and rolling blackouts have made daily existence miserable.
Les Marcott

On Creativity
The Steiny Road Poet read Mary Mackey's Creativity: Where Poems Begin with giddy pleasure. Part memoire, part how-to, part poetry collection, this book dovetails with things Gertrude Stein did.

Visual Poems

Never dreaming of a death so vulgar, so violent, relentlessly American, freakishly dark as death by a noisy, mechanical, Hollywood.
David Alpaugh


Open Secrets
The debate as to whether de Chirico was a dishonest profligate or a brilliant strategist will continue until the subject is thoroughly explored.

Brian George

Immersive Frida Kahlo | reviewed by Renate Stendhal | Scene4 Magazinel | July 2022 | www.scene4.com

Self On Self
When I moved from Paris to California in 1986, I had not yet published a book, but had written diaries from age twelve. I had never been in therapy and couldn't imagine yet that I would become a therapist myself.

It's in the Eyes




Man With A Shoe In His Hand   Altenir Silva  
You're a radical man. You don't realize that you can't bring art to life without transforming it. That's the reason you're here.

The Runaway Wife    Harriet Halliday Renaud  
She was walking home, carrying her books, and he said he was on his way there—to her house. Then she disappeared, and after a long time they arrested that boy, a really clean-cut looking boy.
