Better late than never (I guess) 2015’s Halloween video offers my take on the classic creepy doll theme.

I am not a fan of musical theater. The only time I want someone singing dialog at me is in an opera being sung in a language I don’t understand. That way the human voice becomes another musical instrument, and I don’t have to try to process the cringe-worthy lyrics. However, I saw the very smart and funny The Story Of A Story last night. You want to go to there!

Once again, a daily painting that took five days. Nuff said.

Walking along the lakefront on a nice fall day, I saw the TSNY Chicago school at Belmont Harbor and couldn’t resist. Thanks to excellent instruction from Birgit, Annie and Jason, I managed to eke out a back flip and a catch and release (yeah, like a fish) at the first class. High-flyin’ fun!

My one and only scifi story, “The Wind,” is in the latest issue of Bards and Sages Quarterly.

I ran across an inspirational book at the National Gallery this summer, “Daily Painting” by Carol Marine. She finishes one small painting a day. It’s a great way to train your eye and develop technique (just like in tai chi). Here’s my first daily painting, and it only took me five days!

Here’s our get well pic for our friend Matt Hampton. There are a few students missing from the photo, but we hope our smiling faces will let Matt know that we’re rooting for his speedy recovery.
