Gregory K. H. Bryant – a remembrance.

June 8, 2019

Dear Readers,

Last Sunday I devoted my weekly Saved Post Sunday program* on FaceBook to celebrate Gregory K.H. Bryant’s life and art work. I encourage you to see it for yourself. Go to my FB page and then click on my timeline for June 2, 2019.

This is what I wrote in Part 1 of about 23 posts, to start.

“Part 1. This week on Saved Post Sunday, I’m going to dedicate all the posts to Gregory K. H. Bryant and his work. He passed away this week. But today it’s time for a celebration of his talent. He was gifted in many areas, writing, photography, art etc. etc. etc. etc. Please see my timeline for any posts you may have missed.
I never met him in person – but I knew of him through zines – a sort of network of writers with each publishing their own zine. I asked him to contribute to my zine, Musea in the 90s, and he sent many philosophical essays. I would print one in each issue. Later I published two small chapbooks of his work – both illustrated by him, ( “All About Nothing”, a collection of his philosophical essays, and “The Philosopher” about a wise philsopher mule! He and his wife Llori were friends on FB and I kept up with his work there, and he with mine.)

Here is what I wrote about his art work. I think he was one of our most talented contemporary artists.

“Part 3. Had there been an insightful art media, Gregory K. H. Bryant would have been one of the most celebrated artists of our time. What they failed to see, was that he did not pioneer a new ‘ism” like Matisse (fauvism) or Picasso and Braque (cubism). No his achievement was this: he painted and drew in every style from realism to abstraction, and in every style there are masterpieces!!!”

Start with this abstract and see what. A great colorist he was. Very powerful piece….”

Then I showcased photos of many of his art works, information on his ongoing sci-fi adventure story about Carter Ward, his 40 years working at the National Air and Space Museum, a few personal photos, etc.

Condolences to his wife and children. He will be missed by me and many many others.

Tom Hendricks,

No Door

May 21, 2019

No Door
(Inspired by Eeka Neeka, a poem by Walter de la Mare)

The deserted house
has roof and floors,
and walls and windows,
but no door.

And there”s no lock
upon that door
that isn’t there,
and there’s still more!

There is no key
to open the lock
to the door
not there anymore.

The question left
that beleaguers me
is can we solve
this mystery.

Can we enter
the deserted house
or forever be
kept without?

Hide and Seek (Who plays it best?)

Hide and Seek (Who plays it the best?)

The wind when it’s still,
spring in December,
the Moon when it’s new,
dew under the sun,
stars when it’s raining,
the shadow of a flame,
the tide when its low
the sun at night time.
