So, I know where I’m going but I can’t work on it at the moment. I’m on another mission at this time. But that’s ok – I can still share with you these images from my Victor Valley Project.

A goal is starting to take shape – there is a destination. I’m that kind of person, I thrive on seizing objectives. Does that sound a little Army like? Yeah, I guess that’s what you get when you spend most of your adult life as soldier. Thus I display snippets of a past life here again today. But that’s neither here nor there, the point is there is a goal – things are starting to take focus. And I realize it is a two pronged approach that I’m after. To begin with, I have to breathe some life back into TEAM TEN Tops & Tees and get that to bring in the initial funding for the photo project. The project is another iteration of the Objectivity Project and I think it’s going to be a compelling body of work.
8:30am, Breakfast, Jan 23, 2004 in Iraq. We were at our halfway point where we spent the night.
9:00am, Preparing before we hit the road.
6:00pm, Dinner, before we closed out the day on another journey in Army boots.

Bishop, Boron, Bakersfield, and Barstow – where do we go from here? Who knows. What I do know is that we live in some daunting times and unscrupulous people are preying on the fears of the majority of the people. You can’t live afraid though – that’s not living, that’s just existing. Truth be told, we have lived through much worse – it just wasn’t up front and personal the way a TV and the Internet are now. Any arm chair historian can point to many times where the taking of innocent lives was much worse than it is today – here in the USA too. We have to make the change we want though and that requires involvement. Being involved will require some effort in educating yourself about truths versus lies. And it is not a difficult thing to do, just form some questions and go dig for answers. Here’s a question: there are three things, an alcoholic beverage, a pack of cigarettes, and a box of ammo. Which one of these things can you buy in California without a driver’s license? See, you just have to form a question and go search for the answer. You will start seeing the truth and what needs to be done and you can shut off the rhetoric. The uninformed can be herded like sheep to go in whatever direction the one herding them wants them to go. An ignorant populace is a tremendous source of power for those who do know the #truth but don’t want you to know. Dumb people are easy to scare. Don’t be afraid, be a source of #knowledge.

So, before I had said, “I want to see more than what we see at the moment because more is going on that what is seen.” Hey, that was kind of goofy and made little sense but my Kinetic Ambiguity Project is in line with the point I am trying to make. I’m not after the “Jackson Pollock” photograph but this project works towards where I’m going. I know, you want to see where I’m going with this, not where it came from. You want to see that #image I’m alluding to. Soon, but I need to mull over what I have done to help me focus a little more.
Oh, and I did a lot of this Kinetic Ambiguity Project in Las Vegas – love that place.
