I wrote the following fragment in the wee hours of this morning some twenty-one hours ago as I reflected over the situations of the last few weeks… I think I would title it “catching up”.Catching up… Sometimes the pace of life overwhelms my ability to keep up with demand for my attention which, when this happens, I have to acknowledge I have lost my balance and can no longer keep up. This is why I prefer to work as a conceptual artist because it is exactly these kind of situational relationships comprised of the elements of circumstances and decision making where I wish to improve my efforts to create: a better life for myself, my precious wife, darling children and cherished loved ones beyond. So for me art itself has become a paradigm in which I am not only being helped to discover and pursue my intent, but art is helping me review my work afterward so that I can improve where I am not measuring up as well. In short, art exposes me. Through art I can see much more clearly where my priorities are, and as a consequence, make adjustments so that my decisions are more in line with my intent, and I intend to live in a more kind, compassionate and productive direction than ever before. So that is why I describe myself as a conceptual artist and if this helps anyone else, I will not only feel happy, but I will consider this expression even closer to ideal. Sincerest regards, Steven Boothe

References for my presentation on iPhoneography tonight:QUOTES: “As human beings we require beauty in our lives. Time and beauty help heal.” (Joel Meyerowitz) If “I am because we are” as the definition of “ubuntu” states, then who is it I wish us to be? Or put another way, what is the change I want to see in the world? ???Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.??? (Kahlil Gibran) “Seeing is forgetting the name of the thing one sees.” (Robert Irwin) I believe choice follows intent, that intent follows values equal to priorities, which follow interpretation, and that ultimately choice and interpretation are very much the same.

I have always been fascinated by weather patterns and tonight was no exception.
I wish I knew the name for this condition. I tend to notice it every once in awhile in small areas of the sky. However, tonight was the most wide-spread occurrence I can remember seeing in my memory. To describe this phenomena I would say the clouds had the appearance of an upside down quilt in which small areas had been tucked in by a small stitching or something.
