September 18, 2018 – WHO WE ARE
Who am I? A person? “Person” is a word, a term, a label; and I am not a label. A name? I have a name, but I am not a name. The same goes for my body–parts–and like those other things, it’s a representation of who I am. If/when everything that I am not is peeled away, I cannot be found, yet here I am. So who am I? I am what I am not •

September 11, 2018 – Hello. You would like to learn English. There are many ways to do that–some are better than others. Rather than studying English, practice English–practicing, not studying, is the key. So how will you practice English? By speaking and repeating what you say. Here at Threeenglish you’ll find various examples of English spoken for you. Please listen then repeat. Practice as much as you can. Little by little you will learn English •


July 11, 2018 – The neighbors often made too much noise. Nearly every night the neighbors were too noisy. Why can’t they pipe down, he wondered. I can’t sleep. It’s late. What can I do? There wasn’t much he could do because the noise was within an acceptable range–legally, anyway. After many years of noise, he decided to take action. The following afternoon he went over to the neighbor’s house and knocked on the door. Right away a baby started crying. A moment later the father opened the door, not looking too happy. I just got her to sleep, and now–he gestured to the noise. I’m sorry, I didn’t know. You didn’t see the sign? He pointed to a sign displayed prominently on the door–baby sleeping, please come back later. Oh, I didn’t see it. Again, my apologies. He waived it off. Water under the bridge. So what can I do for you? Oh, yes, I just wanted to ask you to keep the noise down at night. I can’t sleep due to all the racket. Oh, ok, no problem •

Momentous Cessation

July 7, 2017 – What do you see? It’s not real. It never was, and, uh, it never will be. All you have to do is understand that nothing stays the same. It doesn’t. This moment right here—it’s gone. Where did it go? Doesn’t matter—it was. Where does it go? Doesn’t go anywhere—it just ceases to be •

Tokyo Solo 1 – Closed

April 21, 2018 – My first solo gallery show is coming up in a few weeks. The opening party will be on Saturday, May 5, starting at 6:30. I will be there all week until the following Saturday, the 12th, for the closing party. All nineteen pieces are new (a few are only relatively new) ballpoint pen drawings. I made the frames as well, which took nearly as long to assemble as creating the art. This is going to be fun; looking forward to it! •

In Remembrance of a Memory

December 20, 2017 – We were in a cubby of a town in an elevator on September 22, 2009. I was flattened against the wall, and she found that hilarious. I might have screamed during her hilarity fest, but it is not important now. All that is important at this point is getting this thing posted •
