i am an unrequited astronomer, pretend patient, gentle adventurer, pedal enthusiast, recovering calligrapher, occasional thespian and unfinished poet living in portland, oregon. contacting me via email is usually a good idea.
i can't believe that letterforms make me all glowy. the exhibit was wonderful: it was a beautiful space with plenty of room. it was busy over by the demonstration table and i didn't get nearly enough time to look at the pieces. usually i try to sketch stuff i like, but i just forgot to even try. i cut up most of the "didn't make it into the show" pieces i had done to make into bookmarks, and taken out of context, the marks look even more exotic and abstract. i liked them mucho, but i think most everyone else preferred the fabulous pastepaper diane brought.
pamela brought me flowers! how cool was that? :D then jennifer stopped by with her mom in an attempt to keep her busy before taking her home to the surprise party. they're probably still celebrating. :) afterwards, driving home with the windows down and the cowboy junkies playing loudly, i saw a huge green-edged star fall swiftly to the earth. it left a trail behind it for several seconds.
but before i left, terrilynn stopped by near the end and invited me to dinner. she still has calendars to assemble! we had a nice evening talking about the show and glueing leaves & stars. it was nice to re-connect with her again after the holidays. brian sent me home with a bag of avocados from their tree and an extra handful of mint kisses.
