Curve / Think & Act

Curve / Think & Act

I know you better than yourself
You think and act but you can’t convince me
I’ve heard suspicions in the middle of the night
They woke me up, they woke me up

Some people say I’m hollow
And some people say I’m false
And others say I’m narrow
But what do they know, what do they know

They all say I won’t listen
I won’t listen to any criticism
Well, they could be me for a day
If they liked
Then they’d know
Then they’d say (burn your soul)
They’d say (burn your soul)
They’d say (burn it down to the ground)

And I don’t listen anymore
And I don’t listen anymore
And I don’t listen anymore
And I don’t listen anymore

I know you
You think and act but you can’t
You can’t
You just can’t
I’ve heard suspicions
They don’t mean a thing to me
Not now you know me so well

You just (burn your soul)
You just (burn your soul)
You just (burn your soul to the ground)

And I don’t listen anymore
And I don’t listen anymore
And I don’t listen anymore
And I don’t listen anymore

Not now you know me so well

You think and act but you can’t
You can’t
You just can’t

You think and act but you can’t

(Help me to)
(Slay me)
(Slowly)

(Ooh, we are in paradise)
(We)
(We, we are in paradise)
(Paradise)

New Art Show in Peoria Illinois

New Art Show in Peoria Illinois at the Broken Tree Cafe (posted Jan 13, 2015)

My art will be hanging at the Broken Tree Cafe. Sometime in the next week my art will be put up and I plan a visit on the first Friday which is the local Artist’s new show day in the neighborhood. Yesterday, I set out from my home in Bloomington-Normal to deliver my work to the care of Jeremiah at the Broken Tree. Missing my turn-off, I was in Pontiac before I realized I was heading in the wrong direction. I called Jeremiah and he graciously said he’d wait for me to arrive. I went east on route 116 trying to find route 23 to route 24, which would take me right into Peoria–though I was nervous about the roads with the snow. In downtown Peoria I picked up Old Route 66, auspicious as route 66 ends in Chicago at the front stair of the Art Institute. I managed to get lost immediately upon entering Peoria and then stumbled across my planned last leg of the route. Jeremiah was still there and was still unaware of what my art looked like. He decided to hang everything I brought–which, of course, made me very happy. As I was leaving, I saw a young woman shoveling the snow from the sidewalk in front of the community garden next to the gas station just opposite Sheridan st from the Broken Tree. It was already getting dark and I was so excited I had to suppress the impulse to offer my help–she was nearly done anyway. It was another bit of kismit as I had spent all morning shoveling half my block–this IS precisely the kind of neighborhood in which I want my work shown. And it occurs to me that greeting the mailman in the midst of my work… I found out he had to come from Peoria as so many postal workers had called in sick in Bloomington that day–I told him about the show. Thanks for your support.
