We are born weak, and most of us leave that way. I live with an interesting bird, I met him about six years ago. He didn't have a toothbrush, but he gave me a USB stick with his art on it.
Houses for the Atomic Age, Jay Fleming
Eccentric is the word. You don't often meet people who have created a new style of art. I thought, wow, great, this is something from God, now you're going to get famous for your art discovery from way back in 2005. Jay was photographed as a child by William Eggleston, who later became famous:
I brought Jay to Mexico with me, after a long debate with myself about what was the right thing to do. He doesn't speak any Spanish, but the alternative for him was worse, and I wasn't willing to stay in the U.S. - my gut was telling me every day, get the hell out of here. We left six months before the Rona hit. It's a compromise and a sacrifice, but even I am not so heartless as to abandon him to his fate alone. Frailty personified, and spotless before God.
