World Wide Wall / View World (ORDER)

 
HOVERCRAFT began before the U.S. invasion of Iraq, AND during brutal Southern California Santa Ana winds that turned the contents of several cans of Hi-Tack Spra-Mount into just so much dust. I began showing up early at functions with a brush and a bottle of Elmer's glue. In the process of touching up my pristine Sistine, Bush came to shove, and I found myself turning the two-dimensional World Wide Wall into a 3D palimpsest; a Z Axis splatter pattern that reflected the horrors of invasion, occupation, and the War On Terra; with it's larger political, financial, and Spiritual issues that all wars are inevitably fought (and lost) over. All centered on the bullet hole that Iraq had become. 

First to start on my wall, I continued updating it until the doors were locked at 3643 1/2 6th Avenue for the last time. 

HOVERCRAFT was a success in the minds from which it sprang, and to the hundreds who witnessed it.

I am happy to have been a part of it. Happier still, that the "Beginnings Box" has ended up on the World Wide Web, where what you take, can truly be what you make...

When I look into your eyes, your love is there for me
 And the more I go inside, the more there is to see

 It's all too much for me to take
 The love that's shining all around you
 Everywhere, it's what you make
 For us to take, it's all too much

 Floating down the stream of time from life to life with me
 Makes no difference where you are or where you'd like to be

 It's all too much for me to take
 The love that's shining all around here
 All the world is birthday cake
 So take a piece but not too much

 Sail me on a silver sun, where I know that I'm free
Show me that I'm everywhere, and get me home for tea

 It's all to much for me to see
 The love that's shining all around here
 The more I learn, the less I know
 But what I do is all too much

 It's all too much for me to take
 The love that's shining all around you
 Everywhere, it's what you make
 For us to take, it's all too much

Too much...Too much...

TOO MUCH!

ALL HAIL!
