With a tensile gesture we are moved from the icons of the 1960sÑJanis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and the playful insertion of Jim MorrisonÕs documented acronym of his own name, Mr. Mojo RisinÕÑto the cityscapes inherited by Generation X:

& our fathers like a cityscape, like a black & white photograph,
like a muted reflection, like a background of a lost era,
like a misplaced decade, like a shaky foundation which has shaped the minds of my own generation.

intermission is peopled with a richness of character and stories that move from one piece to the next. It is a still and revealing inquiry into the elastic sense of memory. Striking and astounding, this collection of work is a luminous reflection on lossÑthe loss of childhood, adolescence, relationship, and life.
