I love living in small towns where all the stoplights start flashing after midnight.

I got a puppy. His name is rudy.

"Go up the hill and down the hill and you are there."

I am about to leave for a long weekend in the woods on Saranac Lake, and these are the last bits of the directions I was given. So perfect. I'll see you in a few days, civilization...

pictures of words

Top image is mine. Sad Note is by Bas Jan Ader (found here).

I like the idea of writing notes, and instead of sending them, taking pictures of them...

Small write-up on Art&Education's Daily Digest

It looks like the people at Art&Education read The Bowdoin Orient... they did a small write-up about my recent appointment:

To Live in the Space of a Moment, and To Understand Eternity.

This is the title of a lecture I am going to give to faculty at Bowdoin about my work on October 20th.
(it's another quote from the book The Tracker, which is blowing my mind...)

A lost trail always extends beyond the evidence, and even trails we find are only fragments of the trails that lie beyond our comprehension.

thank heavens

I don't really believe in astrology, so to speak. And I guess by believe in, I mean rely on. But I like to read my horoscope sometimes, usually when I'm looking for confirmation about something that I already know in my gut. And that's the case with this week's horoscope from Free Will Astrology, for sure:

"Last May, riots in Santa Cruz, California trashed 18 buildings in the downtown area. But for one store owner, the mayhem brought unexpected blessings. She was able to tap into a city fund that not only paid for her broken front window, but also allowed her to make several improvements, like adding fresh paint, a new awning, and better lighting. "I never would have thought when I got that call at 1 in the morning that this was going to turn into such a wonderful thing for us," Diane Towns told the Santa Cruz Sentinel. I predict a similar progression for you, Aquarius. An event that seemed like bad luck at the time will ultimately lead to good luck."

Thank you, universe!

"New art professor added to Bowdoin community"

Bowdoin's school newspaper, The Bowdoin Orient, wrote a great little article about me! You can read it here.
