Scrapjournal: “lost west coast” / medical notes, mantras, survival tips, ephemera

Compiled during a lost period, the memories of which are as foggy and blurry as the snaps as i wandered places as cursively sloppy as the scribbles within. Remnants of medical appointments, medications schedules, mail ordered items, lists, journals, poetry, dreams, nightmares and talismans of hoping for peace and healing or just rest or maybe contentment. 

The book itself is my “usual style” of a board game backer board, calendar paper front cover (Audrey Hepburn obv) and a variety of heavy stock sewn within using a Japanese sidebinding style. 

Also coasters, cards, travel/ticket stubs and oddments to help retrace steps like paper breadcrumbs. Seems a wander from Washington to Oregon to Pacifica (CA) with sojourns to Logan (UT) and Austin (TX). I recall fleeting snippets and folks whom i am grateful to.

January in the Hot Springs ~ Free haiku + paint

January in the Hotspring

Free haiku and paintings on variety of paper. Made in Tottori, Japan, 1993/4. Read publicly at my older brother’s wedding in Okizaki, Japan.

I’d recently rambled Europe and feasted on Van Gogh and Mattisse and combining their bold lines and bright colours with the efficiency and conciseness of Japanese aesthetic, these emerged.

Produced into a very limited run series (maybe 30?) of chapbooks printed on hemp + cereal straw paper and sewn (top binding) with hemp thread in Guam in 1995/6 and mailed to friends. I don’t have one of these bound copies, only the delicate originals in a file.
