Karinne Keithley Seyer's Linda (5)!

Picture by Karinne Keithley Seyer's from Linda (5) on Hilobrow

"Have you seen this picture of Linda lying on the ground, a dry field with low amber grass? Her clothes are all off and she has them rolled up as a pillow under her head and though she faces us she doesn’t look right at us, but off to our right. Her body is marble-white almost, and in the picture she is quite young, very soft and beautiful. Her hair is swept into a round shape on top of her head and her lips are just a little glossy. Her arm rests modestly on the ground in front of her and her legs are just a little crossed and so although her clothes are all off she is still covered to our view. In the distance behind her is a castle. It looks medieval and maybe Scottish, with its round, undecorated buildings and some of the walls in ruins. Her belly hangs just slightly down on the grass, not a paunch but more like an undisturbed, unpanicked roundness that shows the picture to predate our own time of shame. Her eyes look straight ahead in that way you look when you’re thinking hard on something, focusing a few feet in front of you as if the problem is hovering right there in the air. Her mouth is closed; a question is open. " Read More...

But under house arrest...
Less visible Chinese still remain missing and at risk. Among them are Wen Tao, a former journalist and aide to Mr. Ai, and other associates of Mr. Ai, including Hu Mingfen, Liu Zhenggang and Zhang Jinsong. Few dissidents who have been detained recently are shown leniency. International pressure hasn't helped Lui Xiaobo, a writer who was sentenced in 2009. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize last October but was not allowed to collect it. Read More...

Do You No Matter What

My newest facebook "friend" remembering my oldest art crush:

Repost of Karinne's gift to me

This is the result of an exchange between Karinne Keithley Syers and myself.
It is the link below and it is a beautiful. Take the time to let it load.

Karinne Keithley Syers’s LINDA

Karinne Keithley Seyer is amazing. Below is an excerpt from her novella and song cycle Linda, a hollow-earth retirement adventure with illustrations by Rascal Jace Smith. New installments will appear every Thursday throughout the summer and fall.
I am sitting in a room imagining Linda.

I am imagining Linda lying against the refrigerator of a communal kitchen, dim light coming through covered windows, with a dog named dog-Linda by her side. As I found her she was not like this, she was a 60-year old woman sharing a room with me in a hostel in Knoxville, Tennessee. She was there to bury her father, and to take care of all the things his death entailed. In the night she would call things out in her sleep, like “eggshells, eggshells! Eggshells!” Startled awake, she’d mumble “oh shit” and go back to sleep. Her insides are like eggshells, I thought. Her dead father is like eggshells. In my mind I saw in her dream someone stepping on the opened organs of her father’s body, and she could only cry eggshells. Linda was fragile. Something was wrong with her stomach, like reflux but worse. She had to sleep sitting up, which bothered her a lot, and drank some kind of homeopathic tincture straight from the bottle, which also bothered her. Read more...
