We are all trying to find a way forward through problems we can only solve together—the COVID 19 pandemic, the racism pandemic, the violence pandemic, the climate pandemic. As a mother, and especially as a mother of two young men of color, I feel overwhelmed. Making art and writing poetry is how I process these feelings.
Like everyone else my life has become Zoom-centric. I watch my favorite comic relief on Zoom, listen or read to poetry on Zoom, and consulting and teaching using Zoom. I just want to zoom ahead to future normal. Here are a few of the non-zoom projects I’m working on.
I hope you and your loved ones are all in good health. Let me share a little distraction from the bad news—here are some updates on ongoing creative projects that are keeping me sane during this crisis.
Join Ghostwolf Gallery in celebrating women in the fourth annual Women’s Work exhibition, celebrate the launch of the mural at Little Bird de Papel, and learn about New Mexico Suffragists!
A Roman fertility feast, a Christian martyr losing his life by defying an emperor to secretly marry soldiers to their beloveds,
a Celtic legend about birds mating on February 14th? No matter why February 14 became the day to celebrate love,
we humans have always loved who we love “to the Moon and back again” no matter the obstacles.
This time of year we all spend time looking back and looking forward. Entering 2020 and a new decade, our direction as a country and a planet seem more urgent than ever. And I am reminded that we each only have NOW.
A very beary holiday at Ghostwolf Gallery this December and don’t miss Tortuga Gallery’s Creative Art Fair, December 6-8.
Grateful this month for all the different kinds of connections.
Have you ever noticed how many idioms and characters in folklore use the name Jack? This month Jack and His Legendary Bones, makes his Ghostwolf Gallery debut at the October 4, 5-8pm opening.
September arrives and its time to get serious. Just as it comes up to two years from my sister’s end-stage cancer diagnosis and the recent news that another friend has developed cancer, I am honored to be showing at the Gallery with a Cause at the New Mexico Cancer Center. It opens on Friday, September 6, 6-8:30pm.
