I’m not clear how anyone else might use them, but the
squinting game is handy in literally seeing something more clearly.
Squinting alters the amount of light that enters the eye and, therefore,
the amount of data that reaches the brain. What is interesting is that
the brain has a choice of what to do with that data. I have found my
brain responds by filling in the missing data with what is expected in
its place. In other words, it creates an image out of memory fragments.
This is the initial book from 2012, sharing my reaction to the Alignments at Carnac.
Stonehenge is a big attraction. It is amazing and magical. But the
number of standing stones that make up the place is so few, compared to
Carnac. The Alignment at Carnac, thousands of standing stones, have
been poking out of the ground since 4500 BC. Stones, some 18 feet tall,
are in rows that stretch several kilometers. I visited them following a
day at the cemetery at Omaha Beach. The impact was massive.
3000 rocks, pointing skyward for 6500 years are endlessly pregnant with meaning lost to those who look only at surfaces. I have wandered between these standing stones and am now and forever drawn to them, the Alignments at Carnac. Read my paintings and drawings as poems written for you in a language prehistoric. Don’t be surprised that you already recognize as familiar this unwritten tongue. If you don’t worry about the spelling you can hear the music, feel the cadence, hear past the lack of logic.
