6 word memoirs

“morning coffee, hot shower, good day.”

“Big dreams, various hurdles, getting there.”

“Awkwardly waltzing through life’s masquerade ball.”

and other good 6 word memoirs from SMITH Magazine. It’s almost like the modern age haiku.

bobulate is cool

Especially this post on writing in the margins of books… *note: she mentions the used bookstore on Craig St. in Pittsburgh. Glad its still there.

Also, love that her blog changes color according to the time of day. This is the “evening edition” bg color

keigwin + company

I saw KEIGWIN+COMPANY a few years ago at a Fall for Dance festival and still get worked up over their unique combination of choreography and drama. Sadly I can’t find any videos of the work with the 3 sets of couples who danced these beautiful conversations with their bodies. Hopefully they’ll perform it again in nyc one day.

a pottery project

Beth DiCara’s vintage stamp set was so cool, so I ended up going for an anthropological dig kind of feel and got some ceramic fun into my day.
