#NASASocial Star Trek Beyond

The fruition of interstellar travel and planetary colonization is only a few decades away.
I was selected to be part of Beyond the Fiction NASA Social at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md

Composer Michael Giacchino and the National Symphony Orchestra at Wolf Trap were amazing: performing an enigmatic score from Star Trek: Into Darkness live! The discussion before the show was informative and wonderful, all about Star Trek’s influence on the NASA culture, Vulcan misfits, and the space race.

Between all Star Trek realms, we see the same consistency for space fashion, travel design, future exploration, and universal wonder.

In the meantime, human-bound stargazers can follow the stars into the night sky and find these soft-spacy digital images fun to absorb.

Ideas for The New Year

“Hold an umbrella in one hand and a surprise in the other!” 

Find a new book, make some terrible art work. Get lost in a new city. Explore good magic and keep learning new skills! Write a poem, bake some cookies for a friend. Make a treasure map, and if you find  a new key in the clue, make a copy!

Optivion -New Year is here

Perhaps the most important of all, sing your favorite song, loud and clear and don’t worry so much about the harmony!

Poem for Sunday Shake
I had painted in October, inside the tune of the day
Was lured by autumn’s crisp ink
Central to the song you came, internal colors
Titian, untitled and cool.
Shake it off, shake it off.

Audrey Archangel

Audrey came from the clouds:
She played on the golden
She did not know I slept
She kept vanilla pockets!
And smiled through breakfast.

From her hand a sword:
From the print a star
From the dark a wink
That light, that magic!
She left for the holiday.

There are no written rules, there are no true patrons, do your thing.
Art is light, choose light as your weapon.

Beyond the dead we will take a walk:
Fondly remembering the remains cut from stone.
The rebels authentic, bright sweeping falls!!
*
*
*
Beyond the gates we will take a rest:
Once the roses dry, antiquated thorns drew blood.
The rain murmuring, white sunny memories!!
*
*
*
Beyond the steps we will brake a lock:
Fiercely calling the chants from bones .
The uniforms youthful, stained magic rises!!

Kyoto Garden Wormhole

Optivion - Kyoto Garden Wormhole

*

*

While in Kyoto I made a piece or artwork titled: The Lady and the Wormhole.
The gardens in the city set a mood of serenity and quiet embrace. I was working on a short story about a woman who could travel through space using her garden as the vehicle. I had a dream about her wearing a blue kimono using the small magical landscape to travel through time. In Japan the landscape is part of the history of the town or the prefecture. The Shinto religion is ancient in the country and it holds trees, springs and mountains to be places of spiritual power. It would seem any of the gardens I visited would have the possibility for intergalactic transformation, well at least in my imagination.

Pumpkin Smile Widely

Optivion -Pumpkin

Never cared to be like other pumpkins-
I tried once, but I grew eyes and waited
And the arrival of the birds painted color
Through the fields and the brush.

Never cared to be like other pumpkins-
I tried once, but I grew fangs and slept
And the taste of the universe hungered color
Through the concrete and the bruises.

Never cared to be like other pumpkins-
I tried once, but I grew hands and waited
And the touch of her coat melted color
Through the whiteout and the harmonica.

Never cared to be like other pumpkins-
I tried once, but I grew orange and slept
And the arrival of the farmers inhaled color
Through the enlightened and the fall.

One of those nights.

~Nothing like a creative storm.

Blue

Optivion - Blue Harmonica
Blue song, blue art.
The harmonica measures existence, but keep playing to say the least.
Solar hours of worship, the dark water listens.
And the black forest spins a process.

Pack and move on.

While thus to sleep will have a dream,
Polish mercury with ink.
Messenger indiscreet.
Sit and elect the next stroke.
The waves ferocious.
Beauty swims.

The artist like a detective.

Inside the walls,

It’s all transpired.
From the red brush, spilled patterns and a violet mandolin on the empty stage.
The broken pieces below the table.
The blue sakura through the curtains, whispering.
The sirens in the garden wait for no koi.

Inside the process,

It’s all predicted.
From the stained glass, opened puzzles and a silver harmonica on a crowded hall.
The dusty boots crossing the bridge.
The prints on the moon, fingers.
The tridents in the attic wait for no dragon.

Christmas looks


She passed the flooded white,
the cold became apparent.

Celebrating the special chill,
signaling the icy finale.

The spirit spins of snow,
scintillating orbs.

With colored lights cheering,
the green foliage frozen beneath the path.

The town forgotten in red strokes,
sleigh bells from the sound of legacy

Glisten on,
glisten on.

Fade again.

 

Cheers?…. (December 21,2012)

Quiet Storm

Before the storm
A child jumps the wave
From the coast.

………………

Smiling from the field
In a silent sakura mist
– Island flower burns.

The ancient mask

siren shouts out

Vapor of fire

The Superman

The origin of Superman translates that he was born Kal-El on the forgotten planet of Krypton. Apocalyptic warnings and events pushed the launch of his small spaceship to Earth by his scientist parents before the planet’s forthcoming destruction.

The stars above a silent refuge.
Looking and editing the heavens.
The clearing lights between the dark.
Far, far away, a sunrise.
