Taking art lessons for the past five Thursdays, with a few weeks left, has released me from my head and brought me closer to the heart. This is my Charlie stamp, crafted today, in honor of her formidable spirit; she knew her life a brief six months, three weeks enthralled in my arms. She knew what it meant to live and never realized what it meant to die. Only I dwell in that space.
Andy caught the quagmire of day
mundane car wheels pass his way
rock’n him to sleep,
rock’n rock’n rock’n him to sleep.
What is worth, worth?
questions and riddles
bother not to wonder why.
Andy makes us think.
Pearl, how you gonna save Andy?
such answers, figure them out,
figure them out, figure them out
illusions pass away before your eyes.
Mundane car wheels pass his way
rock’n him to sleep
Pearl, how you gonna save him now
save him now, save him now.
While all the other kids were out playing ball and stuff, I used to stay in my room and imagine that there was a camera in the wall. And I used to really believe that I was putting on a television show and that it was going out to somewhere in the world. –Andy Kaufman
