Dinner with David Daniels
(David Daniels is friend of Neil's)
David: My god! You are a living brush. The Chinese
calligraphers study years to move like you do.
Their goal is to hold the brush as still as a rock
and move it with their entire body.
When I saw you stand.... and then leap, no, fly ,
I knew I had seen that before. My god. You are a living brush.
Your hand is your entire heart and soul. The way you
move is directly from you. You can't hide it--you
is total expression. My god! I love it.
(We see a series of slides of Neil in a series of poses in a Japanese coat
which dissolve into Japanese Conji characters in the same shape as Neil's
