Burst of inspiration this week as the sleeping giant inside of me rears it’s head and kicks me in the ass. Need to get to the studio get get some of it out on the table and allow it to dance.
Having said that, I didn’t leave the house this weekend. Enjoying the warmth against the -5 degree spanking I would have endured stepping out. Not counting wind chill of course. Wind chill is like subtracting 2 hours for California time. A much needed winter factor for surviving upper midwest winters. Not that I’m opposed to the frigid temps or fearful, I just needed to bask in the womb of home.
I finished the novel “Loving Frank” by Nancy Horan this weekend. Poured through the entire book in 4 days. Read it! It’s wonderfully written dialogue keeps an amazing pace that keeps my interest and teaching me some history. Growing up in Chicago a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright and his Oak Park creations, a vivid picture was painted of what life might have been like for him (and the people in his life) and his world in the late 1800’s early 1900’s. Great read! Kudos Nancy Horan! Well done! I’m a memoir/history junkie. She not only painted a picture, there were plenty of thoughful, profound lessons and insights for the reader to be gleaned from it. If you don’t know the historical story of Mamah Cheney and Frank Lloyd Wright don’t read the news archives or reviews of the book that may spoil the ending! The excitement of what may happen is part of the pace of the book. Wow! What a ride!
I watched the ENTIRE last season of Weeds followed by last seasons Dexter. Thank you Comcast Showtime on Demand. I just discovered it and I’m now addicted. It’s the best thing since…well I don’t eat much sliced bread anymore….
More importantly, I didn’t have to watch all this political crap spun like a bad movie by the desperate media, all weekend. Hillary still has my vote. Go Hillary. Life is good.
