Thursday, October 8, 2009—Digging in on revisions and additions to a kids’ poetry collection I’ve been working on. Listening to the pages to help me triage which poems to jettison or put away for a spell, which ones to keep on with. Listening to lots of music and paying attention to rhythms. Mumbling a lot. Reading. Not blogging so much. Dog training, freelance work, family activities all in the mix. Keeping the flow of inspiration going. Now back to it.

Thursday, October 1, 2009—Anyone able to get to South Boston before Oct. 16 should go see Virginia Fitzgerald’s art installation “this comes from within” at Medicine Wheel Productions. The focal point as you first walk in is a majestic, illuminated dress, built of eggshells and papier-mache and presiding over shattered glass. The dress alone is amazing, but look around, and you’ll notice the gorgeous imagery on the walls—of nurturance, life, and flight; mythology and dreams—and an interior red chamber, revealed through the outline of a dress, celebrating the spirit and body of the feminine creative. Oh, but I’m not doing it justice here! What you really should do is go see it!! Better yet, go to the installation and …
If you can’t make it Sunday, check out the installation during gallery hours, Monday through Friday, 10-4, or by appointment until October 16.
