"fuzzy" friday

this radiant man, the dali lama appears fuzzy- yet he was most clear as he communicated his message on compassion as the source of peace, at indiana university last fall. i was fortunate to take nate since he is attending school there. though our seats where far from the stage- his joyful energy reached us easily. i still reflect on the event often, and use it to remind myself of the value of drawing on my compassion when i am suffering. when i feel it for myself i can feel it for everyone with less effort.

photo friday-"what is that?"

for some reason i kept this shot of a sculpture-chair-thingie that was the focus of a small garden outside a home in chicago. it peaked my curiosity- it is a lounge chair on metal legs with leafy appendages coming out of the back.....i remember thinking "what is that?"

travel high

i'm deep in acquainting myself with the possibilities of what morocco could be. watching films, finding the art community, reading native authors, becoming intoxicated with the colors-patterns-and design. though it will be just 10 will allow me to experience the unfamiliar and open my mind to another reality. this "pre-trip" is a favorite time, my imagination takes off and it seems like i am more able to absorb cultural aspects of far off places.
