I do seem to pay attention to this topic of changing perspectives. (See here and here, for examples.) After all, that’s the purpose of this blog–learning to pay attention, learning what has been presented to me in my life to learn from and about. It’s true how much I see things differently after going to a … More changing perspectives
Very depressed about the world today. Very frightened of the future or the potential lack of it. I don’t get how the Iran deal is getting approved. Actually, I do get it. That’s where the irony comes in. And then all these other little things crept into the picture. Maybe a list should do it. … More irony abounds, it seems, today
Which was #3 on the list from the other day, in case it sounded familiar. But I’ve also explored that here. Maybe other places, too, but I’m about to do it some more now. Or maybe it’s how I get affected when viewing art. I began seeing beads and lace everywhere after going to Murano … More And how people tend to be attracted to the art according to how they are dressed. Or dress to be attracted to art?
I wrote about the Tzfat blue a while back here, including a mention of our present house color. Hopefully, I will write something about the colors of the houses in Murano, and our search for the Tzfat blue there. Maybe I’m looking for the blue because we are going to have to change the color in order … More in search of the familiar

I wouldn’t say overdoing as much as not sleeping as much as I would want. But back in my own bed, with quiet. And … More and now back to our irregularly scheduled programming
When I read about it in various different fora, I was intrigued with the idea of this form of public art, so we went to see the Echelman exhibit at the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston on Sunday. You can read more about it here at her site. It was much better than I expected! … More strings are always attached
With yesterday’s post, with me trying so hard to line everything up, in photos and in life, I left out many photos that show how important it is to let go, every once in a while. Let nature show itself. But then, we do interact with nature, don’t we? And then, we don’t do … More natural perspective; a follow-up
but what perspective should we be taking? I’ve found that more than usual, I’ve been aware of all the lines that I’ve had to straighten in my photos. I know that I tend to skew lopsided when holding my camera; that’s what happens when the camera is hefty and I don’t use a tripod. So post-production, … More it’s all about perspective
Jazz is. At least the jazz where you have different members of the unit play off of each other and then take turns playing solo, or at least being featured. What makes it for you, the music? Last night, we went to the bluewhale, (that’s how they spell it) downtown LA, to listen to East-West JazzScene … More Like an elimination diet
She was an artist herself, so what did she mean? We had walked into her gallery in Laguna Beach. It was, as it turned out, a cooperative of local artists. ISHI wanted to see a picture from that gallery that had been featured in one of those local magazines that featured various artists and many more … More “You look like an artist”, she said.
