"An Autumn Afternoon" by The Matchbooks 


The Matchbooks is the result of years of friendship. Musician Chris Grzan is one of my oldest friends. A few months ago, we started playing music together and it's been such a delightful and welcome surprise. "An Autumn Afternoon" is our first single - a sleepy, jazzy tune for a sleepy season - and we're quite proud of it.

"Windows to the Oneness" uses collage to juxtapose the truism "the eyes are the windows to the soul," with the mystic conviction that an inseparable oneness unifies all people, all matter, all consciousness.

Cut & Paste: Zen is a book of literary and visual collage. This 20-page work dismantles and distills to its core points the text of a speech given by Zen master D.T. Suzuki. Excerpts illustrated with collages of flower-headed human figures. 

A second book in the Cut & Paste Philosophy series is forthcoming, late 2021.
