Stuart Davis, Self-portrait, 1919
Bit-o-Honeys, Bugles, licorice, pemmican, red wine and a bottle of Arrowhead to wash it all down. Where but on the back roads? Life is so, so good in California between Maricopa and Parkfield and Pozo and McKittrick.
Lie you down, rest you. Weary bones pale flesh burning spirit one. Life be not gone but transformed by this place. Live with sorrow, live then rejoice. We are together. And again we shall be, here in this place.
