Often, my work is in a show too far away for me to see it there. But this time, my wonderful New York friends Janet and Jack drove up to Rockland County to see “Flowers, Follies, and Other Rites of Spring”, at the Rockland center for the Arts. They were my eyes, and sent me […]
I found this little wing at the front door this morning. It used to be one of four. The Halloween Pennant dragonflies are swarming everywhere right now, it must be March. She went as far as she could go, I guess. I still can’t quite understand how intricately amazing this transient world can be. This […]
Spring here is like a tree explosion, sometimes you can’t believe the intensity against all that cobalt blue Florida sky. Sometimes I think I can see colors best when they’re trapped in a photo-I have trouble believing them when I see them in real time. The trees here will challenge that for the next three […]

It’s all about long sleeps, soft sofas, tolerating your frenemy. You know, […]
We collect, sometimes beyond the point of reason. And there are multiple reasons why. But the root cause, I think, is pretty basic – I’m sure I’m repeating myself, but here I go again – we need to gather things together that help explain the world to ourselves, and explain ourselves to the world. I’m […]
