01/23/2006: "Secretly watch me dissect something"
I was helping an older student in the library and she asked me what I do outside of work so I showed her this website. She said with some surprise: "girl, you're a shining star! Do you know how bright you shine?" Why no, says I. Please, do tell...
Seriously though, I've had a string of rather positive encounters lately...it was snowing out today and I was on a walk when a group of jr. high boys came towards me. I felt uneasy but then one of them gave me a big smile and offered me a donut.
I got an email from a stranger last night who said he thought my paintings were inspired by "benevolent celestial beings” (cool)
I received 3 long-distance calls this past weekend from different college friends I hadn't spoken with in awhile plus I got two *actual letters* through the USPS as well as a $50 rebate check from Costco!
I've been going through a tough time lately with some serious family problems but it seems like whenever I start to feel really bad, someone will give me a little gift, or say something crazy nice...whatever...but as my friend Ann wrote on her site, small sweet gestures can make a big difference.
btw, voyuer and necropsy made my list of top 20 search strings for Jan. (how many others of you obsess over your web stats?) and sure, I misspelled voyeur but so did 1,360,000 other people.
This was the piece titled Voyeur that images searches were bringing up.
i did this a loooooooong time ago! It was for a show I did with Rick called "Penetrated Structures" but I never ended up exhibiting it. God knows where it is today. (Do you ever wondered about what happened to all of your early work that you gave away and worry that it may resurface someday?)
