one more

can't sleep. must be time to blog....received a package of wonderful postcards for the UNCERTAIN TERRITORY: LOSING LOUISIANA exhibit that opens in New Orleans on Thursday October 4, at Isaac Delgado Fine Arts Gallery. It's an invitational exhibit and should be a really powerful group of work. Heck even the postcard is powerful; it's huge and graphic:

and this is the text underneath:

"addresses the serious landscape issues facing Louisiana. However, this issue is not limited to our immediate environment, but bleeds across state boundaries and beyond. It is globally connected. There's no question that culture comes from the land. Sadly, much of our natural world is infected, deformed and quietly disapperaing because of lack of leadership or understanding about it. When all else fails, perhaps an aesthetic approach to communicating coastal wetlands loss is necessary, This exhibition is meant to do just that." Jacqueline Bishop

If any of you are in the area please stop by! I'd love to see you. If you need more info, drop me a line..

Wish I could come see it.

I spent much time yesterday watching fat black and yellow bees and red wasps working over a small flowering weed of some kind clambering over the pool fence. There were a handful of little green lizards in there preying on the bees too. It's a comfort to me to know that when humans are no longer in the picture, nature will prevail, no matter what.
