why the moon

why the moon?
even when I was alone.
I never felt lonely.
I knew that when I looked up
she was there.
somewhere.

I remember sitting in a hotel room
missing her so much.
but I knew the moon I saw out my window
saw her too.

I felt warm.

“Dear Father” painting and video

September 11th is my Dads birthday
Around 3 am instead of sleeping I I found myself writing a story in my head.
This isn’t something unusual for me.
99 times out of 100 though I’ll tell myself “I don’t need to write this down , I’ll remember it in the morning.
I never do .
This time though ,
I got up and wrote down my idea.
A “poem” to my father early in the morning on the day of his birth.
and an idea for the movie.
close to 24 hours later at 4 am on sept 12 this movie was finished.
and 12 hours later its uploaded to the interweb to share with everyone .

music by

song 1 – A silver Mt Zion

song 2 – For Stars

Wien Trees, Schiele Poem

egon-poem

I was really disappointed when I got this roll back from the lab ,
Everything turned red … but now it seems to work .
Yesterday I was reading a book of poems and letters by my favorite artist Egon Schiele.
He wrote :

I ENTER INTO THE REDDISH-BLACK
CATHEDRAL OF THE DENSE FIRWOODS
WHICH LIVE ABSENT OF NOISES AND
REGARD THEMSELVES
IN A FACIAL EXPRESSION
THE EYE-TRUNKS GRASPING EACH OTHER
TIGHTLY AND THE VISIBLE
WET AIR EXHALE
THE WELL-BEING EVERYTHING IS
LIVING DEAD .

-EGON SCHIELE

This photo was takin in the forest down the street from one of his studios in the 13th district of Vienna.

“I’d bring her the setting sun” painting and video

“I’d bring her the setting sun”
watercolor and pen on paper
aug 6th
tj schneider,

Dear love
I know you feel like
I left you behind
but I want you
to know I sit
here and think of
you, I remember
all the days you
would smile
all the times
you told me “I LOVE YOU”
How I miss your
photos
How I wish
this portrait
was me
how I wish we
had our child
and you would
take care of me
my babe
babe, I love you.
please come
home
please I need
my sun ….
( I can’t read the rest)
….
He swore
but I watched her
walk away
Perfect.
wishing as he wept
I swear I would have
brought you the setting sun
I would have ran it
back to that porch
where you’d be waiting
I’d tell you I love you
and show you the holes
in my heart
lost lover.
