Again, the sharp new moon blade. Again we walk a garden with the lily’s clever talking around us. Green satin no tailor sews, trees putting on their hats. A drumming begins, and we play along on the drums of our stomachs. The lake that was ice and iron is now ridged in the breeze like [...]

On a day like today, I change my tote bag from foundation manager to gallery director. My commute is shorter, but the intensity of the day is the same. I wake up early to exercise and listen to Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More. I’ve been singing that song for days… I hear our son tell [...]

I went to Socrates Sculpture Park and was glad to see their current exhibition entitled Vista. It was refreshing to find a clever group of sculptures/installations in one place. Three dimensional is my kind of place — especially if it welcomes public interaction (try to follow that arrow on a windy day) and includes a great view [...]
