hooray for green

growing in our garden: carrots, spring mix (which we've already eaten lots of) and sage, swiss chard, kale, and a load of parsley.

food for thought

i'm not a parent, but hope to be someday, and i find views like this very interesting, and inspiring, and awesome. and i pretty much agree wholeheartedly to these kinds of philosophies. i think it makes for more creative kids, and more intelligent ones. they are after all, people, who live in the real world with us.

lots and lots of paper

today we made a trip to clampitt paper, which was amazing, and a place that david told me about because he gets letterpress papers there. they were very nice about giving us some sample books...the ones below are from french paper company, which has very nice papers as well as some of the best graphic design i've seen. clampitt has a great creative center adjacent to the warehouse, where they have exhibits of neat letterpress and offset designs that have been printed on papers they sell.

before the paper store, we made a trip to trinity ceramic for some good tools we will use in the conservation lab. i used to work there, and my dad has been a customer for years and years. it's a great place to get anything having to do with ceramics, and where i buy all my clay and chemicals...that is, when i have a studio set up (which will hopefully happen again soon). i love their tag line..."play dirty".

la reunion tx

this place is amazing. i am excited to see it evolve into a great artist residency program. yesterday they held an open house to show off the results of the second annual tree carving, where trees tagged as non-native and overgrown were turned into interesting pieces of art...earthworks.

welcome home

tony must have seen something exciting out the front window, causing him to jump on the arm of the chair and flip it over. from the evidence, he must have jumped off just in time to avoid doing a face plant in the nearby cactus, or break everything in that corner.
