This could be your miracle of the day. It is mine. Honesty, advice, inspiration in a world of ENTITLEMENT. 

While quite saddened by the removal and loss of our Apricot tree to a deadly disease and bracket conk fungus, this opened my eyes to a view with endless possibilities!

The presence of absence is a double edged sword; it both ignites the fire within the soul and paralyzes the pen in hand.

Bulls-eye:
(Driving home from dinner)
Husband: Drop me off at Target. I need to pick a few things up from the store and then I will walk home.
Wife  to son: Drop me off with your dad and we’ll walk home together.
21 year old son: I don’t have anything going on tonight. I’ll go with the two of you.
(2 hours later, son foraging in the kitchen): It’s great when the family can have such good fun just shopping together at Target.

So if you really want to impress your friends, art lovers and movie critics, put this one on your radar, but do your homework first.

A Francesco Vezzoli exhibit will be coming to LA in 2014. LA MOCA is “organizing” but not hosting this show. This 43 year old Italian born artist and filmmaker has always been edgy and even bordering on a razor’s edge. But don’t take my word. Check him out.

At any rate vintage UA theatre in downtown LA will serve as the backdrop for Vezzoli’s exhibition and will be spread over most of this building including the lobby.

Cinema Vezzoli may be worth your time. Exploring Vezzoli’s works,  the movies and subjects he recreates may  be considered a twisted twist on the twisted.

Jumping for Koi, Anna Campbell
To understand this 87 year old Utah-based artist, architect, is to fully understand her quote: “I think of myself as an explorer of the visual world, seeking to make connections between poetry and mathematics, nature and the constructed environment.”  She brilliantly collaborates with numeric systems, geometry, calligraphy, architecture, photography and the computer. “Mathematics,” Ms. Bliss adds, “is part of everything I do-it’s a way of thiking!”
