I have a digital recorder that is getting a work out lately. I'm verbally describing visual things, art work mainly, to keep as a reference. i cant afford to be optimistic about a future treatment or cure, so action is needed, as I can manage action anyway.
Books are being thrown out by the bagful, but I'm recording the titles if Id like to read/listen to them again. Art books, photography books are a different matter, an important matter.  I've written my first story too, well, its structure at least but this needs editing and rearranging.
A few years ago I photographed a lot of art work, but - its clear. Since the cataract operation I now see that nearly all were out of focus - despite the camera's promise of auto focus, so a huge waste of time and that project willhave to be redone soon. Above are two kind of random works, hopefully not too blurry for you to appreciate. Acrylic on paper.

Yesterday I spent at my friend Sonia Soberats' home. kat Yi Ji  joined us. Kat is continuing to film me, and gather more material for her documentary film. It is, quite frankly, really flattering and unusual to be the subject of, not one documnetary film, but two. Colin Nusbaum also is currenlty filming me, though at different times!
Sonia herself has been the subject of media attention, and I wasnt surprised much when I entered her home to find another film crew busy interviewing her. We had a good laugh about all this.
Here are three images Sonia and I made together. Our last effort would have made four, but the camera was accidentally knocked over and the digital image lost, and I had to leave then, so I couldn't retake it.
