Nubby Filled Shark

 In a field of daisies...

Bring on the day!

Bald Mountain

Christopher took some beautiful pictures from a wintery Bald Mountain in Vt.

Winter, oh how you comfort me.

Axel Hoedt

I came across these images by Axel Hoedt yesterday while thumbing through some magazines in the Lyndon State library.

And some pictures from the campus

Abstraction of Henry Moore's Reclining Female.  Or at least that is my interpretation.  When I lived in Buffalo I spent a fair amount of time at the AGO in Toronto looking at the collection of Moore's work- the largest collection in the world- very overwhelmingly intense.  You should go sometime.

Everything is so inspiring.

Neko Case and Friends

What a magical night at LSC.... Neko Case and her band, along with some friends; Freakwater, Tony Fitzpatrick, and a puppet show by One Degree Off.  It was wonderful, wish you could have been there too!

Neko and her band

The event was the send off celebration of Lyndon State's 100 year anniversary as well as a benefit for Catamount Arts in St. Johnsbury, VT.

 Happy 100 LSC!

Thanks Neko!

I fell in love with Tony Fitzpatrick's art and bought his book, This Train - his illustrations of the Hobo Alphabet make me want to run off in my Vivienne Westwood pirate boots and jump on a freight train.

You'll find some of his wonderful images here
 The Apollo Moth
The Winter Tiger

Double happiness- total entertainment and I got to wear my pirate boots for the first time, I was just waiting for the perfect occasion.

Here is Neko again:

Now into the beautiful spiral of the rest of my day.  Namaste my friends.

While preparing my neuropsychology lecture....I got side tracked.

Dzama's Frankenstein and Smoking Rabbit

The conference in Tampa was eventful, I learned a couple of things, presented my research, saw some UB friends, and met some interesting people. However, I'm not sure it was worth all the effort and money it took to get there.  Doubtful I visit there again; just too flat for me.

Flying home.

Very happy to be back in the beautiful snowy and very cold Northeast Kingdom (-10 this morning).  Oh! How you were missed!

Buddha Breathes 3

A new Buddha Breathes by Christopher Rice (also referred to as Mac)


Washington Peace Rally February 15, 2003

This is a photo from the Washington DC Peace Rally on February 15, 2003.  The rally was part of a larger world wide series of peace rallies.  It was a bitterly cold day, but no one seemed to mind, we were focused on peace.  The police presence was overwhelming and the crowd was roped into a very small section of the Mall.  It was frightening how closed in I felt at times, although the crowd was calm and adapted- eventually the mass just busted down the fencing to make enough space for the people.

I've had this photo on my office door for some time-  the juxtaposition of the police on the roof in riot gear and the portrait of His Holiness The Dali Lama seems to illustrate the irony of that day.  We came together to rally for peace.  Peace.   Is peace more threatening than War?

Couple of New Things

More shrinky dink Dzama drawings mounted on scraps of material and quilted a bit.  I love making these!  Also a new stamp from Yellow Owl - a Christmas gift from Sarah and Eric.  Lucky me!  I plan to do a post of other wonderful gifts from my sisters very soon.
