This, This, This makes That. You are in a body the body is on this planet and in the middle of space. You think about that a lot. Things happen all the time. What are you going to do about it? Your heart keeps beating. It must be a sign. It is certainly certain that it is happening, that you are thinking, your heart is beating, and that you are in a body with your feet connected to the ground. The ground that makes plants and life you can see it certainly is a living world and you are part of it. Beating with it right now. There is a sound that is all around made from everything. It is a gentle lullaby. It puts you to sleep after a day with its imperfections and things to be grateful for. It will swim around with the beat of your heart as you let the day go and slow everything down. And I don’t know not you, not me. Everything, Everything. And there is more ahead and more behind because time goes both ways for all time.

If anyone has any questions about why I would write this poem for my press release or about the connection between these words and the way in which I fill up the space to make the physical poem of the show and why I would want to do all the work leading up to this exhibit (all of which I call magic) I will be at the opening and would definitely be very happy to discuss with anyone.

Be well,
Chris Johanson
