“Maybe it’s the human race, maybe we’re just full of shit and no light, maybe we’re still full of shit after we shit it out.”

~ Charles Bukowski
From Screams From The Balcony: Selected Letters 1960-1970

Wandering aimlessly, open to all possibilities, and found some abandoned open air buildings near a favorite rock spot here in Pula…. not sure who the graffiti artist is here but i liked the letter style. and as fate would have it, some stray rocks rested nearby… i struggled for awhile figuring out how to make more contrast between the wall and my rocks… then, as if the universe responded to my intention, i was pleasantly surprised by this ray of sun shining through the doorway to highlight my balance about an hour after creation. perfect place, perfect time…

  1. that quote made me laugh (even when it probably shouldn’t) because I said that exact thing to someone who ate a bad sandwhich they’d left in their backpack a couple of days ago. “Check this out, even though you’ve been shitting all day, get this, you’re still full of shit.” And, yeh, what if we all are – just a huge bunch of guessers who don’t really have a clue. At least we can all give a shit – we’ve got a lot to give, after all –

  2. In your video you showed knocking your installations(?) down. I hope you left this in place so the taggers that followed would find it and be… inspired?

    1. Poodle Bear Destroying the structure makes a lot of sense, spiritually, as a symbol of death, which is just as much a part of life as destruction is a part of creation. Don’t know if the creator does it for that reason, but I’m sure he has a reason that makes sense to him. :)

    2. No doubt the destruction is part of his process and that belongs to him alone. I’mma just sayin’ to find these is a wonderful thing. I live in the PacNW and around the Olympic Peninsula there was a cairn artist for a while. It was thrilling to come across them unexpectedly. Magic is afoot! But hey, he built ’em he can smash ’em down. They are inherently temporary anyway. Just sayin’.
