From 1977 until 1979, while living in Charneca da Caparica, Portugal, I created a portfolio of lino cuts. I did these lino cuts as morning and evening meditations. Along with the prints I wrote a series of Haiku poetry, in both English and Portuguese. The portfolio contains 6 lino cuts and 11 Haiku, 5 in Portuguese and 6 in English. The Portuguese Haiku are not translations of the English.
The portfolio is titled "Thoughts On A Passage."
On occasion, I will reproduce these prints and Haiku in the blog.
Por que espero, nao sei
Como as ávores
What is important
Places, things, remain behind
Thoughts on a passage
