47: Stuff that Works

I don’t think of Painter romantically or sexually often but every now and then I hear something and the light brightens. Grief, remorse, and regret work on a dimmer switch, not an on-off switch.

Today, for a moment, a Guy Clark song turned up the dial.

I got a woman I love, she’s crazy, paints like God

She’s got a playground sense of justice, she won’t take odds

I got a tattoo with her name right through my soul

I think everything she touches turns to gold

Guy Clark

“Playground sense of justice.”

Ain’t that the truth!
