The same art series that Lydia pointed out, a Wellington Street public art project of marble sculptures by Marcus Kucey-Jones and Ryan Lotecki.

To share the screen with the great...who the Blockbuster boy had never heard of but Invisible Cinema worker, off the top of his head could ring off what movies of hers they had, and didn't and who directed. Specialists vs. chain stores distinctions are obvious again.

Doing a movie-a-thon of 5 of her films.

Lady in a New Blue Hat

Lady in a New Blue Hat

As seen thru glass blocks. Picassoesque, yes?

I've been looking for a hat not too heavy, not too tight, just right and I may have finally done it so I have an option other than baseball cap.

My tripod fell over and the camera fell in the water. I dried it off. It worked, for a bit, then quit. I dried it more. It worked then quit. Not sure how this drama will end but for now I'm back to my old camera.

ArtsPark Poetry Factory

typing a poem

ArtsPark, annual since 2004, has art and craft booths, music, food, and poetry. The Arc Magazine Poetry Factory ran all day with different poets taking a turn at the manual typewriter doing instant poems on donation from passersby.

Here's a different point of view: a pic by hubby. And a post I did on the event here.

bought at 2 am because the grocery store's ice cream section was all blocked off.

Cheesecake imported from the U.S. seems a convoluted route for something simple.

This morning I had had more fingernails, but I nibbled.

The garnish of cilantro is from our planting boxes.

The newspaper is Muslim Link with a good article by Riad Saloojee.

landscape lettered with



typewriter poems are of the era when means of production was in the hands of anyone with accessible typewriters. computers don't have the same control of placing letters on page as typewriters and transfer letters. but to use the material of letters and hand, one can get access back from the pen.

Baby Things

baby things

The strawberry-blonde hair from my first haircut at at 2 years and 4 months. This would be the result of the second attempt. Apparently the first time I clamped my hands over my hat and there was no amount of sweet talk that would get me to take it off for the nice hairdresser.

In the other hand the cigar my dad bought when he found out he was the father of a healthy baby girl.

History's Figures

history figures

Time and space collapse and Big Joe Muffaraw meets the Samurai at the Tulip Festival.

There were 4 cut outs. Two females, Japanese and Dutch, in tight contained postures, and two males with large, here- I-am body language. The public is to literally get behind the ideas. The originals had flanges of wood to either side and steps so it could accommodate people of various widths and heights.

Teddy bear picnic

If you go into the woods today you'll have a big surprise...monkeys are allowed.

A moment before the creatures descend on the tomatoes, squash, bananas, cake, baklava, radishes...

They roll up the roads and fences at night

rusty fence rolled up and barbed wire

from the window my mom watched then came over with some caution to ask
- why are you filming yourself running back and forth across the barnyard with barbed wire?
- I'm not filming, I'm taking a photo.
- ah, then.

Inside Relativity

relative sizes

Feeling how large the world is relative to me.
Feeling how small I am relative to one tree-being in the world.

Election results are in

Would proportional representation help? Next 4 years are going to be Irish-blessing interesting.
