Topic of the Week:
New Orleans Loved

Last week we were devastated by what happened to New Orleans, and most of us were angry at our government's inconceivable failure to respond with anything like adequacy. But having expressed that anger, loudly and with despair, we need to focus a loving orientation on New Orleans as we go on to reconstruct our world and our selves. By midweek I began to envision Matisse's dancers. I had been looking for them last week, but was distracted by Snow White's Magic Numbers.

I imagined the dancers floating over New Orleans, as I had earlier envisioned the victims. This week's painting was my response. Little time to play with it, but some of you might want to take it further.

love and peace, jeanne

  • Letters of Recommendation:

    • Letters of Recommendation: How to get me to respond to your request. Many of you need letters. If you will follow this format, I can do them quickly and make them good.
    • Dog Letters If you do not give me adequate information, but do manage to get my attention, you may end up with a dog letter. That is a letter that says that you work well with people, that you are enthusiastic, that you persist at getting things done, and that everyone likes you. Of course, my dog gets along well with people, brings his ball to them, is enthusiastic, and persists at getting them to take his ball. Everyone likes my dog. That's a dog letter. It's so general it could be about my dog. jeanne

  • Career Options You Might Not Have Considered

    • visual media and their interdependence with other means of knowing to understand that we are not totally rational creatures deciding things apart from our feelings and values. Wolfowitz (new President of the World Bank to aid developing countries AND principle advocate of the Iraq War) might feel very differently when he is exposed to visual and aural images of the poor developing countries that have not before been his primary concern. So we want to know how best to present those developing countries visually. And we might find that we can have a career doing that sort of thing, so it does reflect on us as individuals.

That Was Fun! Sneaky Strokes and Flying Good Dogs

Flying Dog is also a painting by Zhang Kai. Best I've ever come across to illustrate our site with magic numbers and unicorns and whipped cream cats and now, flying dogs:
