The Doors of Perception

Wow! I just posted my very first video to You Tube! This is a slideshow I made a few weeks ago. It includes images of Blake's paintings and engravings, of some of my own artwork, and of some photographs I took. My idea was to combine the images and music in a way that would inspire me to dig deeper into my own imagination and to make connections between the artistry of Blake and my own creative life. I eventually would like to do more of these, along with some short films, all of them exploring the imagination and the creative life.

Wow, Theresa, that is an amazing video. I like it very much, and the images, and the juxtaposition of the images, are powerful. I'd love to see more of these.

Theresa, excuse while I shake off these goosebumps. You never stop amazing me! I watched this after a sleepless night and didn't try to process it logically, just let it wash over me. Actually, I think through me would be more accurate. It's very powerful and created all sorts of images and connections in my own mind. the combination of the music,the sounds and the images is something else. You have got to do more of these.

What a debut for YouTube!

Theresa, you have found a new canvas and mode of expression.

This was a powerful display.

Theresa-I enjoyed seeing this! Is the soundtrack all from Dead Man? I saw that movie years ago and only have a vague recollection of it.



About Me

Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death
by Albrecht Dürer

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
