Armed men stood in a balcony overlooking Michigan state legislators. Their pictures were all over the news this past weekend and yet I wonder what would have happened if they were all people of color doing this. How many charges would have been brought against them, even though they’d have claimed that it was their […]

I remember when I was a student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, finding out that the reason Hokusai was so prolific was that he had slaves to do the manual labor. As it turns out my instructor had it wrong. Slavery was eliminated in Japan, two centuries earlier. Who Hokusai had working […]

Happy Birthday Bethany!  So many years ago and yet I still miss you as much as I did then.  I’ll love you forever.

Yesterday I received two messages.  One via email and one by snail mail.  Both affected me, yet in vastly different ways.  I’ll start with the easier one, the postcard, first.   My immediate response when seeing the postcard that said,”PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CORONAVIRUS GUIDELINES FOR AMERICA” was NOW THAT’S FAKE NEWS!  Did those responsible for printing […]

We’re now asked to stay home unless it’s absolutely necessary to go out for groceries, medications or doctor’s appointments, etc.  Eventually we may be required to shelter in place and I realized that for part of the year for the past ten years that’s exactly what I did at my cabin in WV.  I was […]

Since this is an art website; it’s time I wrote about art and things artistic.    One unexpected outcome from my dismantling my West Virginia studio was finding an unfinished painting from my time at the Grand Canyon in 2007.  When I brought it to the cabin ten years ago, I fully expected to work […]

Okay, I decided to watch yet another democratic debate earlier tonight and I’m glad I did. My main take-away is that the men are way too emotional! They just had to have the food fight that the press was hoping for, so that they could then criticize them for having it. Don’t get me wrong, […]

When I think back to the over twenty years that I worked at the polls, neither I nor most of my fellow volunteers ever cared about what happened in the early caucus states.  We barely paid attention to the candidates’ standing until the primary states that voted closer to Pennsylvania’s date had their results.  But […]

Bravo Sen. Mitt Romney for your courageous vote and for your sincere and powerful speech. I doubt history will view your fellow republican senators’ votes in a positive way.

“History is being made and recorded now.”  I wrote on my last blog about this impeachment trial.  So today we’re having senator statements and those by republican senators are attempting to justify why they will vote to absolve this president.  As if any statement can change their lack of courage to follow the facts and […]
