…..I keep thinking of new ways to nearly strangle myself. I keep thinking that I have hung up the oxygen tubing on every possible thing I could hang it up on. But no, this was a new one. At least with this one I did not lock my car keys in the car. And even if I did, I can take the nasal cannula off. There is that moment of panic: AUGH I AM TRAPPED, but I am not really.
Today’s blog is especially for B who is not trapped.
Have a wonderful Saturday.

My parents’ time warp Beatnik household, 1978, before I went to be an exchange student in Denmark.
We had a German exchange student living with us. She had been placed with a couple with no children, a military family, and was unhappy. My parents agreed that she could move in with us for the rest of her year. I decided to apply as an exchange student. I have not heard from her in years. Blessings, where ever she is.

I put the lights on my fence two days ago, for a friend who has cancer.
The neighborhood is probably puzzled. Heart and f? What does that mean? He fart?
Anyhow, I am thinking of her.
Now I need a timer, because I don’t like leaving it on all night and I currently fall asleep at 8 pm most of the time.

I took photos over the Thanksgiving holiday. With this one I had the camera sitting on the table and was just tilting it up to take photos. People pose less if I don’t hold it in front of my face!

The opening of a nest is a door, isn’t it? Two nests decorate a friend’s exquisite garden, with flowers galore. Patches of glorious color.
Someday maybe I will have more gardening time!
Meanwhile, their garden is a door into beauty.

My photographs and posts last week were from Maryland and the art is from the National Museum of Women in the Arts:
https://nmwa.org/, in Washington, DC.
Today I am going to start reposting the art, along with photographs of the names of the artists and titles of the work. The current show is titled “Magnetic Fields”, after the above work by Mildred Thompson, and is about black women abstract artists.
So let’s go through them one by one:
I did not capture the explanations. But the piece on the right is by Judy Chicago.
This one I did:

This is a fabulous and gorgeous museum. I enjoyed exploring it with my family and thought that my mother, an artist, would be very pleased.
