Morning Reflections

Morning Reflections

How many? That was the big question. The answer, in its ambiguity, its scant existence, looms just as large.

Beer, wine, cider, and of course, the hard stuff. Why did they always think the hard stuff was such a good idea after all else?

“Winner”

July 25th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

"Winner"

“Winner” has its foundation in something my mom always used to say.

“There’s a real winner.”

This phrase would invariably be flung in the general direction, yet out of earshot, of some hapless doofus, loud-mouthed jerk, or scowling ne’er do well. “Winner” to my mother was a sarcasm, a sour taste, an ill-bestowed honor.

Radio Silence

March 15th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

Radio Silence

radio silence
you know it
because you can hear it
silence like someone left a window open during a storm
silence like a mic full of reverb in a fat room
silence like a man in search of a lozenge
back’a th’throat, meditative like
aural snow
radio silence

Merry Christmas!

Working at Cross Purposes (pt. 3)

October 10th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

Cross Purposes - the cabinet open - an LP fits right into it! :D

[continued from Working at Cross-Purposes (pt. 2)]

I’m the kind of person who always has a host of mid-process projects cluttering the corners of both their home and mind. Some of these projects are just dormant seeds I squirrel away for decades at a time. Others blossom more quickly … and some stall.

The devotional cabinet and crucifix lay in hibernation for almost a year.

Cross Purposes - The first square frame box

[continued from Working at Cross-Purposes (pt. 1)]

There must be something about autumn because, here I am, a year later, back on this project.

As mentioned in the first part of this rambling, incoherent stream of blasphemy, after finishing the crucifix project, I became more and more aware that I wasn’t done, yet, that the crucifix was just one small part of a larger piece.
How was I to know, that fateful day when I picked up the chunky, wooden crucifix with the corny, plastic corpus on it from the shelf at Goodwill, that it would lead to me building a devotional cabinet?

Well it did.

Inorganic #1 – in progress

August 8th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

Inorganic #1 - detail

detail of unfinished piece, acrylic on canvas 3′ x 2′

I’ve never really indulged my painting urge. I yearn off and on for the capacity and thus, occasionally dabble but it remains one of those things least often attended to in my panoply of petty distractions. Maybe four short, concentrated periods prior to this one. As I’ve mentioned too many times before, I grew up feeling incapable of art and something about painting terrifies me.
