I'll post a better video next week
Wtf Chuck. Busy much?
I like the idea of flipping the script. I'll add that to my toolbelt.
I want to say reality is really timey-wimey, spacey-wasey? I think someone else said it better.
Very cool! Now little kids are going to want their parents to take them the long way home to see them.
p.s. I also have a thing for medieval architecture - castles and cathedrals. Can't see them enough when in Europe. Happy Holidays from the east coast which has yet to get snow.
Really cool you do this and hilarious you’re this obsessive about something this small. I can for sure identify with that.
Hide the murder victim under the Christmas lights! Let the cops drive by! You, Sir, are a genius.
Looks great!! I applaud future you's style :)
This is gorgeous! My dad made stained glass and I would study the glass for hours. When I went to the Winchester house of mystery I lost time in their Tiffany window display in the coach house. Part of me felt like I had always been there.
I think time is circular and different dimensions layer beneath it, like a circular lasagna, so we may exist in the same time as the crusades in some strange space where our realities overlap.
Baldwin says, “The past is present. It’s not even past.” Same with the future. There’s a simultaneous interplay/overlap of past/present/future that I love about what you’re saying.
I have a bad habit of taking things apart and not being able to put them back together again. Wonder what that says about me...
Really nice. This is something thats lacking in my generation. We're glued to our screens, and missing those physical experiences like these. I remember now when I was a kid, in 2nd or 3rd grade, the teacher told us to create something using household items. Me being a little pretender, and a liar ( to survive) since a very young age, I made a fake ID. I wanted to be someone else. And to think about it, its one of many reasons I'm drawn to writing and fiction in general. To live inside a character who isn't me. Not that I'm good at it though.. still trying.
Forgive me If I'm rambling.. I'm a little drunk, and on cloud 9 cause Morocco just beat Spain in the World Cup. Yay! 🥳
For a moment I thought you were going full Tralfamadorian mode there, Chuck.
May your future present always nudge you in the present past.
I just had surgery recently, so putting up lights and taking them down will be a pain. I'm in Ohio, the weather is windy, rainy, warm, freezing, or snowing. We put up the bare minimum, and I feel like a failure this year. Thank you Chuck for being amazing!
Those lights are super cool!
Never thought about thoughts of the future impacting the past or present in this way. Definitely will think on this one.
Beautiful work, Chuck. Has a sort of Rothko touch, without all the burnt umber.
Also going to try to get a local meet up study hall going. Met a few local writers at a gaming convention this weekend. If schedules align and we get something going, I will share info with folks here in the KS/KCMO area.
I'm reminded of Christ Alexander's "Timeless Way of Building," an architecture book concerning mankind's search for the "quality without a name" and how this search expresses itself in art and architecture.
As if something touches you, then retreats into the stone slab, the blank page, or a set of lights, beckoning for you to give it shape.
