There were actually other things going on between the last 2 posts….some being particularly inspiring.
Number 1: Stephen Shore at Strand
It was great having my copy of American Surfaces signed, and to enjoy the culture break in the middle of franticness. I also realized that the way I take photos on vacation is obviously directly influenced by Stephen Shore. Anyone who’s ever traveled with me knows that they will receive hundreds of photos documenting everything from their backs as we walk through a scenic location to the hostel breakfast. That’s just the way I roll.
Number 2: Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor
What happens when a brain scientist starts to have a stroke? She says, “Wow, this is so cool!” And then she makes a full recovery and starts crafting 2-D brains out of stained glass. Duh.
