THERE ARE SECRETS IN MARFA

Chinati. Donald Judd. Flavin. As far as you can see.

There is a lot of this sentiment around here.

Oh, this is where Kyle Field gets his inspiration. West Texas style. A shaman wrote this. He was sitting in a jeep outside.

Flavin. (earlier we were cracking up saying 'flavin' flav')

Most people share a similar secret here in Marfa, Texas. They left city life and found a place with epic landscapes and a horizon that encourages good ideas. I'm presenting the Feist documentary tonite, on behalf of the people that I love, at the incredible Crowley theater tonite in Marfa. It might be the best place this film will ever see. I'm also continuing a tradition of my own, which involves playing last-minute shows using local musicians (and my brother-in-law on bass!). Tomorrow at the Marfa Book Company/Gallery at 9pm. I'm a bit rusty, like this horseshoe next to me on the table. Horseshoe's bring luck.
