This was such a good month. I am preparing for a gallery showing of my paintings, and really I think I have more than I need to fill the space. Remember, Friday night only, for Gallery Night at Studio b you can see some new paintings. Here is a sneak peak:
Oh, if only I knew how to knit. I just imagine sitting in the living room with a glass of iced tea to watch Sense and Sensibility while a beautiful dress forms in my lap. Maybe someday…
Meanwhile, would anyone like to trade artwork for a handknitted dress with linen skirt?
Right now I am preparing artwork for a display at Studio B. October 3rd is Gallery Night in Pensacola, and all the galleries downtown stay open late for a block party with art, music, and hors d’oeuvres. Please plan to come visit Studio B located at:
- 208 S. Alcaniz Street
- Historic Downtown Pensacola
This is the last 2 lines from a recent Wendell Berry interview in The Sun:
Fearnside: The Buddhists try to follow a path of “right livelihood,” which means that a person should not engage in work that brings harm to others, either directly or indirectly.
Berry: Right livelihood would prohibit strip mining and building warplanes. And so would “Love one another,” if anybody took it seriously.
I would just like to say thank you to the Barnes family for treating us to a wonderful day on the water.

One evening, Jonathan and I were watching an episode of Independent Lens dedicated to Asperger’s Disease. The director focused the entire show on her younger brother who was about 21 but because of his Asperger’s he acted 7 or 8 years old. The show began at his birthday party. He screamed with delight as each guest arrived ringing the doorbell. It reminded me of Miles who is 3.
Later in the show, after having trouble in his new job, the young man lays down in his room to watch Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. He says that the world is a little less crazy because of Fred Rogers. I agree.
We were expecting Rogers (that is what Miles calls him) to be back when the day was new with ideas for us, but PBS pulled the plug on the show. Some are trying to save Mr. Rogers, but as of this week there has been no neighborhood of make believe in our home, no MR. McFeely, and no visits to the factories (those were our favorite parts). We miss Mr. Rogers already. Appearantly, the show will be on during the weekend. I guess that is better than nothing. I am going to write to our local PBS station and ask to replace Dragontales with Mr. Rogers.
