the power of sight is not in our eyes. it is in our ability to understand our surroundings : aldous huxley portrait, painting, scott richard (2009)
one of scott richard's personal intellectual heroes.
where the brain of humanity is the tongue of poetry and insight.
blind, the impossible sight of the inner mind, so much easier to find.
i think of you, magnifying glass in hand, studying 19th century paintings... riding the works of others, shunted and close,
a jockey of the intelligence.
your lesbian wife, your devoted child and hollywood.
a violinist, world renowned for her grace, awaiting you and there for you until you died, high on acid, three doses,
just hours after john f. kennedy was shot dead and the death of c.s. lewis!! another crazy dead trio in time!!!
you have gone before us to build a palace of our imagination!!!!
