recording the atoms....

"Let us record the atoms as they fall upon the mind in the order in which they fall, 
let us trace the pattern, however disconnected and incoherent in appearance, which each sight or incident scores upon the consciousness."  
-Virginia Woolf

Truth be told, I have never been much of a Virginia Woolf fan. I cant say I ever really understood her. Still, this quote has always resonated with me. Years ago, I wrote it out in a spiral pattern and hung it on the wall of my studio. Several studios (and several cities)later, it's still there. For all I know, it meant something completely different to her,then, than it means to me now. So what. It reminds me of me; my creative process, the way my mind works. 
So now I'm tinkering with a blog. Mostly for my own self reflection and self exploration, I expect it will be more pictorial than anything else. We shall see. Just gonna let the atoms fall as they may.
