Some of my students' work from my Candy Tin Assemblage class that took place last night. These photos show various stages of progress throughout the evening. My students were mostly teachers (middle and high school), and artists. I felt like I was in very good company. Teaching this class was a very rewarding experience!
A creative friend emailed this article to me, written by Danielle LaPorte. After I read this fabulous article, I went on to read a few more, all very compelling...
These photos were taken during my trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, in 2007. Every year in late October and early November, the Mexican people (families) celebrate and honor their departed loved ones. This is truly one of the most beautiful celebrations I've ever witnessed. To see more photos of this trip, please visit my Flickr site.

How can there be such a feeling of utter exhaustion after nine days of relaxation? I'm still trying to locate my conscious brain this morning...where did I leave it? I believe it may still be floating above the exquisite coral 'gardens' at Ka'anapali Beach in Maui, perhaps even wondering where the rest of my body is?
More photos to come...thank you to Patricia Green for this one (from the Morgue file).
