Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

Nolite te bastardes carburundorum!

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Hanging Myself

But first - those of you currently living under the onslaught of snow, ice, and general Winter weather follies, I hope you're snug, warm, fed, and safe!

OK, on with the show.

I'm spending the day at the gallery, hanging myself.

Well...hanging my pictures, anyway. The show opens Sunday, and between now and then I will finish mounting the extra prints for sale, printing the stories that go with the pictures, and probably pulling my hair out because I will stress over every detail, even as I let go of my need for perfection and control.

Realistically, I can't expect to sell everything, or even anything- it's a small gallery in a remote (albeit lovely) location..but I can hope.

Meanwhile, I had an idea...a narcissistic idea, to be sure...but an idea nonetheless.

I have been blathering about this show for a month, and it seems unfair that I don't inflict on you you don't get to see it...so what if I put it here, too? I'm thinking that maybe I'll "hang" different photos or groupings and their descriptions here as blog posts. They won't be mounted, matted or framed (unless I figure out how to do that electronically in the next few days...don't hold your breath), but it'd be better than nothing...or would it? I could also post photos of the pieces my friends have done - K's paintings and S's sculptures, which are all awesome.

What do you think? Are you interested?
