Another Seedy Motel Somewhere on Rte. 66 by 

Self, 2006

I’m going to be skipping around the timeline a bit – still have a few Hawai’i photos to post, but these fit with my current mood…
Post-back injury, an old lover drove me from Chicago (where i stopped to visit old friends) to Albuquerque (where i was starting a new life) – i was miserable and missed Honolulu. So to cheer me up, we stayed at the seediest, run-down motels we could find.

They even had one of those cheesy vibrating beds that took quarters :)

    You know – you are about one of the most versatile artists around… and, I guess – that means you are fully aware of so so many ‘parts’ of yourself – to so perfectly portray such incredibly varied senses… Pretty brilliant lady!

  • Thank you so very much, K. I think we’re all a lot more multi-dimensional than we realize – personally, i go by Walt Whitman’s words: “Do i contradict myself? I contain multitudes!”

    A great narrative here-the vibrating bed info just adds to the visuals!
