Of A Friday

Enjoying these things:

I Let Go by Erica J. Schmidt.  When I gave Erica, aka the Exuberant Bodhisattva, a Liebster Award a while back, she generously sent me a copy of her new book, I Let Go.  It is available on Amazon.com for the very low, low price of $2.00.  It says Kindle edition, but you can get it both for an e-reader and just as a pdf file.  It is less than the cost of a subway ride but it is much more fun and it smells way better.  Update:  According to Erica, "The PDF file isn't actually for sale, but if people don't have e-readers, they can still read the Amazon version by downloading a free kindle app."

Henri the Cat



My friend who teaches French at Columbia says he needs a French tutor.  Alors, just one more of life's indignities.


This is one of Finnian's drawings from his life drawing class at the New York Studio School.  He has been making some beautiful drawings.  It has been very exciting to witness his development, even just how he has dealt with drawing naked people each week.  I wasn't so sure how it would be, as a 15 year old boy.  This one made me laugh:  here he is confronted with a very large, nude woman, laying on a platform.  His chosen point of focus?  Her iPhone.  It's all about priorities, I guess.


And some yarn.  Chain-plied merino from a hand painted fleece from Widdershin Woolworks that was, oh, I don't know, picked up on a little jaunt to Taos.  You know how it is....

Hey Robyn!
Thanks for posting about me. HOpe you're well. I was just going to email you! The PDF file isn't actually for sale, but if people don't have e-readers, they can still read the Amazon version by downloading a free kindle app. Happy Friday the 13th! ;)

I so agree Shawn - his drawings have been getting better and better. And they are so much his own - they don't look like mine nor Dan's, which is really the coolest thing...like he is his own person, if you can imagine!

Finn's drawing is wonderful! I saw few drawings of such caliber in all my years at art school...Finn, you rock!

The cat video had me laughing out loud...existential angst from a cat's view. LOVE IT. Thanks .

I'm also very impressed with Finn's artistic talent. Wish you'd been my mom and I could have gone to art classes! Merci beaucoup por Henri! I am in love and will now be a devoted follower. I've been meaning to brush up on my French, anyway...
