The Alex Gross "Shokie" print I ordered arrived this evening. I am very happy with it even though it might be seen as a very sad image.

Rule One: One entity per ride; no teams,
Rule Two: No artificial intellegence;
whatever's out there won't stop for a smart machine, at least not the kind we
know how to build.
Rule Three: Recording instruments are a
waste of space; they always come back blank.

Tonight I ordered a print of this piece by Alex Gross. It had been on my mind for the last several months. http://alexgross.com/prints/Print_shokei.html
...the lake's floor exists floorlessly,
and is shore exists shorelessly.
Its water feels itself neither wet nor dry
and its waves to themselves neither singular nor plural.
