Good Things

Some days, it seems appropriate to take time to acknowledge some of the good things in life:

- the beautiful poster Thomas brought me from his road trip last week to speak at a symposium for graphic designers in Cincinnati. Last year a bunch of us went to Splendors of China’s Forbidden City: The Glorious Reign of Emperor Qianlong, and Thomas acted as our impromptu docent. However, we quickly realized that other visitors thought he worked there, and began moving along with us. I would have loved the exhibit regardless, but having Thomas walk us through the art and design made the experience so much more. Anyway, this poster it the one Thomas chose, and for those of us who made the Dallas exhibition it has multiple meanings - design, content, and memories.

- Another haiku on a bill board by local poet, Nan Dozier--

Mixed forecast:
Wool socks
and sandals.

- The novel The Icarus Girl by Helen Oyeyemi.

- First steps in cleaning out and organizing garage. Looks so much better, even if there is still so much to do.

- Gardening. Dividing perennials that have been neglected is work, but work with promise.


  1. Hi Jen,

    I tried finding all the books you recommended back in January in cd format, but none are audio published.

    Guess i'm missing all the good ones because I'm too lazy to read.

  2. Mary- Well, they aren't all good. The fact that I enjoy a lot of them doesn't mean they are good...I'm just an escape artist, and not a very particular one. I really should try audio, though. Easier on the eyes and leaves your hands free!!


Good to hear from you!
