Vacuuming Our Cat

Conrad the Kat, also known as “Beast” and “Animaux Sauvage,” is a total fur factory. He generates more fur than any critter alive. He sheds everywhere. Enormous fur bunnies lie in his wake as he saunters around his lair. I’ve given up the idea of having fur-free dark clothes. A colleague told me she vacuums here cat and that her… Continue reading

Two [click, click] in One!

So here are some photos… Continue reading

We Used to Wait

Cover of The Suburbs I recently was at a conference for and by artists:  dancers, visual arts, musical arts, and educators.  Naturally, such an eclectic group is a tremendously fun energy.  One of the ladies shared an unusual web site, an interactive film based on the address at which you lived as a child, called, “The Wilderness Downtown.”  She just… Continue reading
