still resisting?

it's 3:30 am.
there is no electricity.
i cannot upload yesterday's and today's drawings.
the war is "over" since monday.
they are still finding corpses under the fallen buildings.
we still freak out each time we hear a scooter or a truck. we think of the planes.
tomorrow we're recording a "war quartet" with sharif, charbel and marc on electric guitars.
i am still drawing.
i am waiting for the day when i can sleep.

when possible, please upload some of your recordings. my chakra needs to be realigned...

"will the chakra, be unbroken?" (a pun on a carter family tune [which itself was ageless] w/ hinduism)

p.s. the drawing of you and evan ("i like the smell of your car") brought tears to my eyes. i feel like i have a permissive voyeuristic, yet intimate view into your life.

c'est malin d'avoir fait sauter les plombs de la centrale électrique avec votre "war quartet" les amis ! ;-)
et pourquoi pas "peace quartet" ? :o
au fait as tu réécouté notre quartet impromptu avec Christine et Sharif alors que nous attendions les bombes, les Israêliens, très joueurs ayant attendu qu'on s'arrête pour en jeter une :-/ ?
mes amitiès à Marc et Charbel...
nous sommes tous suspendus à la trève comme un pendu instable debout sur un petit tabouret de bois bancal...
il faut que ce machin tienne car j'en ai vraiment marre d'être ici à perdre mes journées pour le grand capital
il y a tant à faire avec vous, et encore plus maintenant
bises à vous tous

i tell people who comment on my insomnia that "sleep's over rated" keep drawing. keep resisting. above all keep the music flowing. i am glad for you and your family surviving this round. i mourn for those who did not. i fear for all of us while so many monsters rule.

Hello, I found your blog recomended by my sister, and I don't know where she found it.

I am an Israeli living in the US, grown in Brazil, and one of my objectives is to express those facts that people seem to ignore about LIFE. My friend, I am so very sorry for the UNFORGIVEABLE actions of my country, for ignoring the lives of hundreds of people for a reason that is beyond what the people need.

I would very, very, very much like to have a connection with you and your friends, so that we can have a bomb and prove to the world that peace is possible, but first and furthermost, NO WAR, NO VIOLENCE, NO MATTER WHAT.

I am ashamed of my country's attitudes, and I see now that most Israelis are understanding the truth about their country's deeds.

Best regards, PEACE,

Roy Frenkiel

Cara... não tem nem o que uma pessoa que está sentada confortavelmente no PC da sua casinha segura (mesmo com o PCC aloprando em Sampa)diga. Então só posso desejar boa sorte, e continue firme

wars will never be over until people stop having outbursts of dog-eat-dog / i-wanna-rule-the-world mentality. on the other hand, ceasefires are always good.. and better if it takes hundreds of years before ceasefires stop.
