into fog
smudging our thoughts–
we lose who we are

  1. it would be fun to work this – in a simple way – into my version of haiga. …a collaborative effort? does your referencing of who the image is by mean the photo is public domain or a free use image? … if you’d like me to give my version of haiga a try… let me know. if the photo is not up for free use… i have several options from my own photos that you might like… i think they would fit your ku well…

    just so you know~
    i’ve had a set back with my cintiq, scanner and other things (i can still work but on a more limited scale) – i’m working on getting that stuff right again – it may be a long work – in progress. i can see some great possibilities with your ku and this – or… other images tho… …and sometimes i need a break from this fix-it stuff. bwahahahahahahahaha.

    cool on clarity. way cool on your ku. aloha.

    • Yes, please….do your version, Wrick! What I used is a free use image. And I chose it because it’s a park I love, right here in my city! Huge and sprawling, a nature fantasy. Some red mushrooms spawn. Robins with what seems reddder breasts. Once I glimpsed a gekko! Or maybe I was imagining it, missing the sound these ‘lizards’ make way back home like cracking the egg shelll of silence. In the summer, dragonflies of varied kinds. The park is surrounded by water. And rocks like petrified small-time giants rising from lazy waves. Some day you should see it. But Hawaii, of course, is paradise!

      Please a haiga with my ku is in your hands. Thank you for finding it cool! And I hope you fix your cintiq soon. though you might create something else you like better without it! A collaboration…I’ll wait for it!

    we find ourselves
