I don't know if there are guns in heaven by 

this is a response to Helen and Ray. I don’t know if there are guns in heaven, but I do know that there are artists…

See the dynamite box… it is loaded with art supplies.

There is a group titled if you take a knife to a gunfight… I think that is a name of a Sherman Alexi story or novel,

here is my response to the notion of art and war.

Ever since the beginning of memory, I drew, painted, and crafted. As a child, above our family couch was a painting of lush woods and trail leading to a cottage house. I followed the trail with my mind’s eye and invented a family that lived in the cottage. Sometimes I would ”sit“ under a painted tree and imagine the world of the painting. My orientation shifted, I was no longer sitting on the couch, I was under the artfully rendered tree. This was the beginning of a love affair with art.

    Great to see a response like this to that powerful poetry… if there are heaps of art supplies there – maybe it might be a place I wouldn’t mind visiting ;)))

  • Glad you like it. Yes, H’s performance poem was definitely a clincher. Her poem had me rolling!!! I found the dynamite box at a secondhand store, and I knew it would be a perfect vessel for my various art supplies. I love the dark humor behind taking a knife to a gunfight. Maybe taking a paintbrush to a gunfight might be better? I don’t know.

    And whether it is heaven or my home you were referring to, you are so welcome to join us…
    Really not sure how tidy heaven is though… as you can probably guess, I an not a very good housekeeper. but company is always welcome.
    As a matter of fact, I always tell people that if they are not afraid to see how my family and I REALLY live, you can come visit us any time…
