i've got more than a feeling
and it comes with good reason
we feel better to suspend disbelief
we do it so kindly
almost complete 'other' mind-ly
when a film on the telly it shows
as story we enter
and slip on the character mentally of the person
we step into the story
yet for a couple of hours we 'believe
and we are relieved when
as if the whole world had read the secret
and knew it all turns out right because we knew it would
yet despite all the background characters in our own story lines
our own real life lines
no not the hocus pocus distractions of the
palm readers but the real living eye contact
carers reflectors of the souls travelling through our lives with us
there's an interesting interruption
unplanned 'palm' as in palm tree is the same spelling as 'palm'
as in palm leaf
i read a palm house recently
i it read
large irrigated green house in a park
it was romantic
not because it was to do with a romantic kisses and cuddles assignation
1. The act of assigning.
2. Something assigned, especially an allotment.
3. An appointment for a meeting between lovers; a tryst. engagement.
No romantic because i wanted to draw it and had received a commission to paint it
for a young wife who wanted to give it as a gift to her husband as it was the place they had wed.
And because it was the location the previous week for my friend Ed
to commemorate his mother's life with his family.
So then two people separate story lines had come together.
If \I were a film maker
i could would might yet use the setting to
act as the theatre
And it would facilitate the suspension of other's disbelief because they would have stepped into an
unusual yet understandable legible analogy.
Some one some group is able to erect at great expense a small cage for home for
creatures that seem inanimate yet have biblical association and whose leaves are named after our hands
and those hands are associated with our own 'family trees' or at least our projected and imagined
toyed with futures when placed in another's interpretations.
so then the suspending of disbelief
please notice that is a double negative
suspend ( don't do wait)
dis( don't or undo )
so then this 'leaf ' this be - lief
believe = suspend disbelief
viz don't not believe
allow yourself to be 'palmed- off ' with this story before you
so then there i was with my friend john ,who deserved a run out with his newspaper
and keeping me reassured in my isolation as an artistic warrior into the unkown
fellow Christian spaceman
drawing the web of glass
and remembering the other palm house the isla gladstone where at the beginning of the year God had watered dreams of a brand new life of dancing
and at the concservatory style dance room at hugh fearnlae whittinstall's place too
all quality asscociative film making stuff some mutual transparent tardissss
plural of Tardus perhap Tardi
I digress which is probably a welsh man whose slighlty angry di the aggressive
oh losing it if not already lost among the plants
so we started out flowing on the tender thought i had about the way we suspend disbelief when we step into a film yet are unable to believe when we come to our own lives having an author director origianter and making of the settings for our own story lines but willing to place or palms to be read by a part time tea leaf brewer of imaginary futures and there 'dry readings of who we are and where we are going and able to make reasonable guesstimates about where we ahave been.Well don't e know
who do you think you are well clearly a dinosuar why not? Just look at us
When the next day i was drawing at the zoo i noticed it is collection of palm houses yet retirement homes for animals resued from the cruelty of ivory ctahers and rare meat gobblers having robbed alll there forests it only seemed right to produce thes vast palm house to let them have their own new year jive!
