Soundtrack: Joni Mitchell’s BlueLive cam in black & white tonight…I listen to Blue. Mitchell’s Blue has been getting some neo-buzz lately, without question a valid consideration.

Puts me in the mood, just cruising along like the ship under the bridge, above. Its fortunate passengers drifting toward, under, and by the Bay Light. This screen capture… Ed Ruscha’s painting, Untitled, (galleon ship silhouette) whispers in my ear as soft/acute as when it first penetrated my consciousness in 1986. That’s no mixed metaphor–a painting whispering in my ear. Remember: I’m drawn down to gaze while listening, to listen while my eyes take in the lights, The Bay Lights.
