“If ever there were a spring day so perfect,
so uplifted by a warm intermittent breeze that it made you want to throw
open all the windows in the house and unlatch the door to the canary’s cage,
indeed, rip the little door from its jamb, a day when the cool brick paths
and the garden bursting with peonies seemed so etched in sunlight
that you felt like taking a hammer to the glass paperweight
on the living room end table, releasing the inhabitants
from their snow-covered cottage so they could walk out,
holding hands and squinting into this larger dome of blue and white,
well, today is just that kind of day.”
“You are so beautiful and I am a fool
to be in love with you
is a theme that keeps coming up
in songs and poems.
There seems to be no room for variation.
I have never heard anyone sing
I am so beautiful
and you are a fool to be in love with me,
even though this notion has surely
crossed the minds of women and men alike.
You are so beautiful, too bad you are a fool
is another one you don’t hear.
Or, you are a fool to consider me beautiful.
That one you will never hear, guaranteed.”
Excerpt from Billy Collins’ poem Nightclub.

The US Navy has military dolphins that look for mines and military seals that look for intruders. So we literally have Navy seals. Hahaha.

Self-Portrait by Chuck Close
Seen at the Museum of Arts and Design’s Out of Hand exhibit.
At first I thought this was paint on fabric, and that the “digital” theme of the exhibit had to do with how the paint was applied. But actually the whole thing is FABRIC. It’s an example of digital weaving. The entire image is made from weaving different colors of thread together. Not a drop of paint anywhere. Wow!
