By a Thread

June 30, 2010

I’ve just lived the worst two or three months of my life. I believe I am on a good track of improvement, but some days still I’m not so sure. It wasn’t the flu, although it felt quite like it. Intense, immense body ache, foggy brain, and constant need for a nap. Soooo tired. Of [...]

A walk on the beach

May 25, 2010

Didn’t feel too energized for a walk, so Tiberio swung by and drove us to Golden Gardens, so we could just park and look out at the water. Ended up going for a little stroll anyway, talking about what do we want to be when we grow up. Middle-aged angst; you’ve heard of that, right? [...]

Downloading a Friendly Universe – baby needs some shoes

May 16, 2010

While the adage is “don’t judge a book by its cover” the thing is, we’ve got a book that is in need of a cover. And so Elke assembled the coven, and we went to work with scissors, paint, pastels–and even some  sprinkling of gold flakes–aiming for something just right to go on the outside [...]

D Jones, poet

May 12, 2010

I’m happy to be working on the website for my friend, David Jones. He has a powerful voice and so many worthwhile things to say. I’ve believed for quite awhile that he needs his own channel, his own modern soapbox. And now it’s coming true. After a few conversations with him to gather info and [...]

April 27, 2010

A name arrived this morning for my piece at SEAF: Caught in Gramma’s Notions. This is the piece that started out as a “wall treatment” and which has evolved to be an “installation.” And yes, I am excited about that.

September 10, 2008

I’m telling you, this man has an eye and a touch. See what he can do with humble carrots? He can work such magic on your portrait, too. Or, you could purchase one of the magnificent works he has already captured.

Katyn Massacre Memorial in Seattle, WA – Wiktor Szostalo, artist

August 22, 2008

In 1940, the Soviets executed over 20,000 Polish military officers, policemen and civilian prisoners of war. Today, artist Wiktor Szostalo delivered his latest sculpture–a memorial to those dead–to St. Margaret’s in Seattle. Szostalo worked from a photograph of the bound hands of an executed prisoner, and his steel sculpture is a compelling rendition of anguish. [...]

what now #6

July 25, 2008

Mask and Clown class with Arne Zaslove continues. Session number 4 will be next Monday. I am enjoying the adjunct benefits: getting more in touch with my body and my imagination. I find myself surrounded by friends who are clowns, (retired clowns), and mimes. I guess I lost track of this information. Kerry Robby Pellett [...]

I know you have been waiting breathlessly for pix from the big ReFirement party. Hope to have some Flicker links soon. In the meantime, this is what the transition looked like:
