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.
* sven & i went to see bodyworlds at omsi. fascinating, but some political choices that made me angry, primarily about the role of the church in the history of science. but it was interesting to see his style progress from standard anataomical reference and historical references to deliberate artistic choices and the use of new materials. unlike some exhibits, i totally feel i got my $15 worth.
* met w/ michaelmas, kristen & todd to see the swifts swarm at chapman elementary. kristen and todd are going to italy next week, and will be in the EU at the same time i am. i leave oct03 to see the completion of expedition360, which i've been involved with for over eight years.
* went on a long walk on powell butte to celebrate the autumn equinox, where i found my favorite spot (in the orchard) and the -best- climbing tree i've ever met.
artist's way starts tomorrow morning. i had a large response for tuesday morning, and only one request for monday night, so i'm taking a writing class starting tonight instead.
wow! the 360 expedition is cool. I hadn't heard of it.
