Trip to Ithaca NY for meeting and lunch at Moosewood. Naturally, the best!

The objects and piles of things in the new space
look strangely beautiful early in the morning.
The sculpture is of my father. My handmade paper is
framed on the wall. The light will be most welcome here.

Also, you can now see my "news" on Squint. This is the blog for
the University of Hartford Limited Residency MFA Illustration
program directed by the famous Murray Tinkleman. Our faculty
includes "Amazing Greats"such as Nancy Stahl, Gary Kelly, CF Payne,
Alice Carter, Ted Lewin, Betsy Lewin, and now Zina Saunders!
