Je ne sais pas

Some people think the most important phrases to learn in a new language are “Please,” “Thank you,” “Direct me to the washroom,” “I am in pain,” and “How much does this cost?”

Those are all very useful, but for me, what I most want to learn to say in any language is “I don’t know.”

Because I never do.

Right now I don’t know how many paintings I’ll have for my May show or how I’ll manage to bring the one on my easel right now to a satisfactory resolution.

I don’t know what the paintings will be “about” (and some one is bound to ask me that-ugh) or what I’ll title my show.

I’m tempted to call it “More Paintings about Rats and Balloons.”

Maybe I’ll resist that urge. Maybe not.

Maybe I just need a good night’s sleep.

I don’t know if that will be possible tonight.

Je ne sais pas.

  1. First, “Bon Chance” on yr May show.
    I think that yr efforts, the ones I’ve seen are amazing. C’est vrai!

    enjoyed you alluding to the Dylan review and especially
    the video, first time I’ve actually seen monsieur Brel, he’s compelling and gifted as all get out.
    Je pense..Sans Brel, Non Bowie.
    Keep on, G

  2. Merci beaucoup, Monsieur sans nom:)
