An Education

Really looking forward to seeing this film. So many good reviews. I hope I can catch it this weekend.

My daily walks with Butter have been so colorful lately. Here are just a few shots from around the neighborhood.

Wanting to get a nice pair of boots this winter. I've got my eye on a few pairs. Though I probably wont get either of them due to the fact that I have no money. A girl can wish though...

And if I were a rich lady, I'd get these beauties...

Masao Yamamoto

On this rainy afternoon I find myself staring at my computer screen searching for the right words to start my artist's statement. I'm hoping these magical words will kick start the 140 or so words that need to follow to complete my statement. My mind is blank. This cannot be a good sign. So, I've turned to the internet...reading statements by various artists I admire. Again and again I turn to Yamamoto. Each time I see his work I am in awe of his talent, his way of being, his world. His photographs stir something inside of me that I can't completely identify. Maybe I see myself in them. Perhaps my family, a memory I have, or a dream...

Here's a video I found of Yamamoto describing his work and little about his process.

Mameshiba...not quite a bean, nor a dog but perhaps a hybrid of both. They love to appear out of nowhere and offer random bits of trivia whether you asked for it or not...

Here are some scenes from the car. Chaz and I took a little road trip up to the northern part of the state over the weekend. I was amazed by all the colors. It was like patchwork. So vibrant even on a grey day.

A Nice Visit


Last week my friend Chris visited from Birmingham. We had a good time eating lots of food, finding treasures at the flea market, and goofing around. I made Japanese food for everyone. My most successful attempt at making gyoza. Next time it'll be even better, I hope. The first time I tried I was so excited I forgot to add any kind of seasoning like salt, pepper, soy sauce, ginger. Needless to say, they were pretty bland. This time I made sure to add all the ingredients. We feasted like kings. It was nice having a visitor. I sure do miss my friends that have moved or live far away.
