Mourning & Gratitude from Where Art & Life Meet

Every now and then it hits me. She’s gone. I will never see her again. I will never hold her hand with those arthritic knuckles that made them resemble gnarled tree branches, misshapen and yet beautiful. I will never get another email from her containing silly videos or stories or photos and it is during […]

This is Grief, I’m Told from Where Art & Life Meet

There are moments that feel impossible and others that fly by unnoticed. Mostly I’m exhausted almost constantly, as though a perpetual scrim has enveloped me, making everything feel heavier, cloudier, more difficult to sort through. It’s not terrible, just different. This is grief, I’m told. This morning is one of those heavier moments. Maybe it’s […]

Thoughts on Feeling Blue & Radical Self Care from Where Art & Life Meet

So I shot a video yesterday because I was feeling a little down and wanted to try and jolt myself out of it. I also went to the gym, rode a bike for a half an hour and then decided it would be a great idea to sprint on the tread mill for a few […]

 It's mostly my fantasy, but partly influenced by the mind-boggling Guangzou Circle Building in China, designed by Italian architect Joseph di Pasquale. I figured if di Pasquale could make a coin-like circle stand on its edge to serve as a useful building, I could do the same with ...

On Perspective from Terificreations's Weblog

I’ve been friends with, the quilter for, and an admirer of Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero’s for years, since we met on the set of Quilting Arts TV. In recent years she’s taken up photography, working on honing that skill in a way that’s truly informed her fabric design. Jeanie participates in a weekly photo challenge which includes… Continue reading On Perspective

Life’s Little Road Blocks & A Bike Ride Along the Hudson River from Where Art & Life Meet

These past five days have been plagued with technical difficulties. Glitchy websites, my business email suddenly stopped working, endless calls with well meaning tech people, blacklisted IP addresses, hours upon hours (more than 25 over the last five days) trying to figure these issues out and resolve them, with, alas, no resolution in sight. Just… Continue reading Life’s Little Road Blocks & A Bike Ride Along the Hudson River

Sh*t My Mother Sends Me and So Much More from Where Art & Life Meet

The image above has nothing to do with anything that I’m writing about today. I need you to know that right off the bat. But I love the photograph as it features two things that bring me joy, the ocean and flowers. We begin with a little something to make you smile, or if you’re… Continue reading Sh*t My Mother Sends Me and So Much More
