2 skiffs to celebrate the 2 overnights we just spent with Rick & Donna at their delightful cottage @the Jersey Shore - situated within one square mile of heaven - lovely, quaint "Ocean Grove".

Wish I were still sitting in the rocking chair on their front porch! What a glorious way to relax on Memorial Day!

I saw Marcia in Seattle last week. Remember Marcia? She flew east to work along side of me in my studio for a week back in March.

Mentoring, teaching & encouraging other artists - this is a role I find myself in more & more. Specifically these are artists, who have a similar passion to mine - using their art cross-culturally.

Marcia was a star student who soaked everything up like a sponge! Within days of leaving my place, she flew on to Nicaragua with her accordion books, creative tags & collages ready to put into practice what she learned.

More of Marcia, the 'going cross-culture artist', in Nic later this week.

Just returned from Seattle.

Great fish photography @Pikes Place Market!

Seattle in coming posts

Saw Marcia in Seattle - time to share her Nicaragua experience.

Met Brian @Finishers Forum workshop Using Art Cross-culturally. We'll partner in creating an accordion book for his friend in Uganda.

Looking for 'crosses' around Pikes Place for Gerda's 365 - Cross a day photo project.

Story ropes in Japan? Maybe.

I returned from Boston. Gave seminar to a really great group. Mixture of cultures, backgrounds & interests in taking the visual arts to other cultures.

Loved presenting in Boston!
