My Daughter – The Empty Canvas

When I tried to lure my daughter back into my life – she in hiding – she contended I had come on real strong to her mother in regards to sleeping with her at the Bankcroft House, where I asked Patrice to marry me. Heather accused me of being some kind of fiendish parasite trying to attach myself to her family.

In her letter to Dick, dated 3/19/2001, Patrice Hanson tells Dick of the good news about Heather finding her real father. At the bottom of the letter she says;

“He is coming to visit on Thursday. We are so excited. I guess the perfect outcome would be if we get married and had a daughter.”

This is most telling. This is a Stage Mother who kidnapped my unborn child sixteen years ago, and used her as her personal Empty Canvas, where upon only Patrice’s influence was put, proving, Patrice is a gifted and creative soul. She looks past my creative input – to the famous Rosamond – as if to say she is on par with this world famous artist, who could have been Patrice’s sister-in-law if I had not been such a coward, afraid of being murdered by the Fake Father, the famous Imposter. What a soap opera!

Heather was Patrice’s Play Doll, her toy, she making fairy costumes for our daughter to wear. But, she has recently lost her virginity, and Patrice is wanting for a fresh Baby Doll to dress up. She made covert plans to have me provide her another immaculate Conception via my male penis and her vagina, this time, verses the infamous succubus. Then – she would disapear on her broom – in the dead of night! We! We!

Above is a photo of Mark Gall and myself. Heather dismissed my good friend, a educated psychologist, as being able to evaluate my mental illness, tell me how truly sick I am, and then commit me to a mental hospital for the rest of my life, lest I spill the beans on her famous mother, being, she is not famous. Just like her husband was not famous. What a real asshole!

Perhaps Patrice had planned to sell my new baby girl to her sister, the wicked witch of the South West, so she could know what real wealth feels like. Of course – I feel nothing! Man – what a fairy tale!

I have compared my friendship with Mark to the psychatrist friends of Vincent Van Gough, and Antonin Artaud, the father of the modern theatre. In Rosemary’s film we may be beholding the doctor that told my mother she needed to come for an extended stay at the new Camareo State Hospital. Real famous mental illness comes down to us through my Rose Line, and not Patrice’s pedestrian nuttiness. What – psychiatry!

After I get my book contract I will ask Mark to evaluate Patrice Hanson for the epilogue. All’s well that ends well, they say -after some eletric shock in the infermary!

What I find very curious is Patrice made up Heather to look like the daughter of Merlin in the painting behind her. Merlin was a Foundling named Ambrosius which means ‘divine immortal’. Which is to say, my daughter is guaranteed to live forever, for she is the Amber Rose captured forever in the sap of my family tree.

There is no consensus on Vincent van Gogh’s health. His death in 1890 is generally accepted to have been a suicide. Many competing hypotheses have been put forward about possible medical conditions he had. These include epilepsy, bipolar disorder, sunstroke, acute intermittent porphyria, lead poisoning and Ménière’s disease.

Doctor Rey
According to Doiteau & Leroy, one day Van Gogh wanted to present a painting he had just finished to Dr. Rey. But the doctor refused the gift, so Van Gogh offered the painting to the pharmacist of the hospital just passing by, a Mr Rousseau. He, too, refused and so the next passer-by, the administrator of the hospital, was offered the painting – and he, a certain Mr Neuvière, is said to have accepted.[19] See also Hospital in Arles (Van Gogh series).

Rey later reminisced: “When I saw that he outlined my head entirely in green (he had only two main colors, red and green), that he painted my hair and my mustache–I really did not have red hair–in a blazing red on a biting green background, I was simply horrified …”[20]
