Sorry it’s been awhile. I was away for a bit but I pinky swear that posting resumes. I have some great new photos and drawings that I’ve been toiling over and some news to share. For my first bit back here’s a link to a lovely interview with one of my favorite authors and illustrators, Maurice Sendak.It is 20 minutes of humor, sadness, and inspiration.

Weekend Reading

Off for a weekend trip and trying to figure out how to pack for this weather. Hasselblad, disposable camera, New Yorker, The Sentimental Education by Flaubert, scarf, and this article written by William¬†Deresiewicz about the loss of solitude in contemporary society.
