Sunlight across a table

There are moments when the pause is instinctive, noticing light or shadow.

Other times you have to work for it.

Autumn, still happening

Sunset in Northside Ohio

Let’s fast forward to now.

A new president was elected.

COVID rates are spiking across the country.

The old president won’t concede.

He’s spreading chaos.

I know people that thrive on chaos.

It adds to isolation.

I’ve continued to be as safe and productive as possible.

It is wearisome.

But alas.

I wake up, scroll a bit, grab coffee and shift to job mode.

I am lucky.

I get to conference with friends and work together to design solutions.

It’s almost like normal in some weird parallel universe.

But it’s not.

And it’s also ok enough.

I guess?

Yet I worry.

Next goals:

– Minimize phone
– Avoid Chaos
– Find beauty

Out the window

Been watching my brother’s dog during the day. Took a while to gain her trust but now she’s always by my side and on the lookout.

Previously out the window.

Gloves are prudent

6 feet apart

The greenery keeps going

Three months later, and there’s still a sprig of this greenery that keeps on bringing a little sliver of joy.

Reform America

Monday, June 8, 2020

With the Public Service Artists, we covered the front of Wave Pool gallery with our latest message: Reform America. We’re asking folks what they think are the most pressing issues facing our country today and the responses keep coming in:

  • Racial injustice
  • Universal healthcare
  • Special interest money
  • Stabilize and reset environmental regulations
  • Police reform
  • Homelessness
  • The Electoral College
  • Empathy
  • Immigration reform
  • Education

The list goes on and on. We’re using these responses to form our next project. You can share your thoughts with this simple form.

Celebrating Paula

I got a reprint of the book celebrating Mom’s life to see how the hardcover version looked (from Blurb). It’s quite lovely. I have been sitting on a long draft documenting the project, but it’s not ready for primetime yet. Getting closer, I want it to be just right.
