and the last of what I was able to cross off the list. because today is the day, you know. that's all I'm going to say.
number 22 and slides are magic. especially this one.
number 12 and have I ever told you how much I love anna halprin's work?
especially as seen through the eyes of one very wide-eyed ava.
I believe in work like the city dance of lawrence and anna halprin. passionately, emphatically, I believe in the power of work like this.
number 24 and how did I pull off three whole hours alone at the portland art museum? mother's day, that's how.
I spent a good deal of time dodging museum security. they had it in for me and my harmless little camera. ah but they couldn't catch me, friends. because I'm slippery like that. I'm surprisingly stealthy. for the record, there's a rauschenberg piece there that's probably worth going to jail for.
number 35 and we almost missed the strawberries. but we made it up for it with loads and loads of blueberries and raspberries. we were swimming in berries by the time it was all said and done.
number 29 and it probably shouldn't count, seeing as how it was at amy's house and not mine. but this past summer we decided to throw a girly party together and can I help it if her garden is the most amazing garden in the history of the world? no, I cannot.
my specialty: chocolate-dipped strawberries.
oh, the frocks. pretty pretty girls.
p.s. number 11 and I love books. one new author (thank you jen lee) and one not so new. done and done.
p.p.s. roughly nineteen items officially crossed off the list. well, okay then. okay. but I really don't want to talk about what didn't get crossed off the list. not today I don't. there's one undone item in particular that's really eating at me but I'm letting it go today. because today is a day for new lists. today is shiny and new.
