The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

I saw this film yesterday without knowing anything about its content. I found it by turns horrifying, funny and beautiful. I reviewed it here.

I'm Baaaack!

Photo by SONY. I can't upload my digital camera photos yet ... don't see a port for the memory card. Tee by Osprey. I wore this shirt today to give me luck in choosing a laptop.

Short and (now) Sweet!

This is my triumphant return! I now have a laptop, so I can communicate no matter where I am, and I will, as you can imagine ....

Absence = Fondness?

Well, I hope so, because I will be gone for at least a few days, while my computer is undergoing open-case surgery. Pray for it!

Quiet Evening Redux

I got a sudden inspiration to rework this old painting titled "Quiet Evening" this evening, adding red, yellow orange and orange, and some touches of black. It brightened up considerably, proving its composition to be pleasing after all.

World Sink

My friend Esperanza gave me this hands-shaped soap dish after I admired hers. I found this loofah dish scrubber at the health food store. It swelled up with water and turned into a a sort of earth, and I thought it looked dear in the hands. I think of it as washing the earth when I am washing my dishes.

Next to it is my bar of Dr. Bronner's soap that has the imprint ALL-ONE! which definitely describes my feeling about humanity. That is the message I am trying to inscribe on my heart. All of us are ONE BEING. Sometimes I have trouble letting certain humans in, mentally, when they seem immature, chaotic and destructive, but I have to keep trying to include everyone in my image of Humanity.

Book Addicts Anonymous

When it comes to books, I am a hoarder, always thinking I will re-read them. I have often bought books in hardcover for that very reason. Today I dropped off 35 books at the local library, which sells books to help support the library, and then I came home and cleared out one entire bookcase.

The result was a back end book dump for my car. I just got it cleared out!
