In between December’s packed little calendar squares, swollen round with shopping, menu plans, decorating, greeting card distribution, holiday parties and travel, I toss a pillow into the corner of the month somewhere, to sit and think about my art plans for 2015. It gets me excited with possibilities for the wide-open tundra of the year ahead.
I started scribbling a list in my studio, and with each line item, my heart beat a little faster with ideas and plans and potential. Do you make an end-of-year list too? What’s on yours?

Take now the clockworks… The clockworks, being genuine and not much to look at, don’t generate the drama of an Earth-tilt or a flying saucer, nor do they seem to offer any immediate panacea for humanity’s fifty-seven varieties of heartburn. But suppose that you’re one of those persons who feels trapped, to some degree, trapped matrimonially, occupationally, educationally or geographically, or trapped in something larger than all those; trapped in a system, or what you might describe as an “increasingly deadening technocracy” or a “theater of paranoia and desperation” or something like that. Now, if you are one of those persons… wouldn’t the very knowledge that there are clockworks ticking away behind the wallpaper of civilization, unbeknownst to leaders, organizers and managers (the President included), wouldn’t that knowledge, suggesting as it does the possibility of unimaginable alternatives, wouldn’t that knowledge be a bubble bath for your heart?
