Guest Blogger: Henry Taylor

I'm still gathering my force to resume blogging at my typical rate. Things here have been swirling with guests, friends from Tossa/BCN and the usual have-to-do's, all integrated with the pressure to make art like an artesian well. Pretty tough at times, but no one on earth can complain about that.

So without further adieu, here's Henry Taylor to fill in a few blanks in the meantime:

anyway, you may or may not know but but the brothas in tulsa, oops the wrong fucking tulsa my black ass ain't never been to oklahoma but i have an aunt there and well yall know they did at one time drop bombs there on black folks but we'll save that for another time 'cause tossa's what really on my mind and my two kids noah and jade. anyway, i thought i'd speak specifically to black people 'cuz they tend to stray or stay away from water at times not necessarily because they can't swim but sometimes it has to do with their "DO", meaning hair-do. it might also have to do with the fact that there were blacks in the t.v series Seahunt, or diver dan, or even bay watch but fuck all that i say, blacks get in the ain't no cops down and you'll have so much fun you won't care about yo hair. but more than all that it is, "all that"! today i snorkeled for my first time, noah, jade you checking dennis's blog? did you hear what yo daddy just said, i went snorkeling! but you should of saw me this weekend when the beach was packed (& with rough seas -ed.) and i was embarrassed and had to come the shore, that day it was too rough for the brotha and i'm sure the white folks on the beach were saying, * in a dutch, portuguese, russian accent, "what , maria do ya see what's happening here, there's a black man getting in da wata', hell there's a black man in the motha-fucking whitehouse, too motha fucka! but again, we know that too doesn't really mean a dam thang either but back to my peeps, it 's really beautiful down there in the water, the ocean water and if you ever get the opportunity, go for it, by the way always go for it, but you already know that pimpin...actually, i was more concerned with sharing this experience with my son Noah who has a lot of fish and fish tanks and this is definitely on my list of things to do with you. jade, you heard me?!
