A year later.......

TAURUS-Here's one of the best things you can do for
your mental and physical health: Withdraw your attention from the life
that lies behind you, and be excited about the life that stretches ahead of
you. Forget about the past, and get wildly inventive as you imagine the
interesting future you will create for yourself. Forgive everyone who has
offended you, and fantasize about the fun adventures you'll go on, the
inspiring plans you'll carry out, and the invigorating lessons you hope to
learn.



It's been a long reparation year, have had a show! at the Nave Gallery, and I'm working still; interested in sheds and embroidery.

I am ready to play!

Taurus:  The Icelandic word *hoppĂ­polla* means
"jumping into puddles." I'd love to make that one of your themes in the
coming weeks. It would be in sweet accordance with the astrological
omens. You are overdue for an extended reign of freelance play . . . for a
time of high amusement mixed with deep fun and a wandering
imagination. See if you can arrange to not only leap into the mud, but also
roll down a hill and kiss the sky and sing hymns to the sun. For extra
credit, consider adding the Bantu term *mbuki-mvuki* to your repertoire.
It refers to the act of stripping off your clothes and dancing with crazy
joy.

Strongly influenced by my horoscope, I take on the challenges and head out to jump me some puddles. I want to play!

moving on?


"Above all Michele stands ready to jump. Michele has ended the semester on a strong note demonstrated by the  work that communicates with a clearer and more confident voice, as well as, strengthened visuals that exude a more complex emotional component."  Amy Podmore, RSA 2014

creative, brave, and courageous.

For the [creative person], what's going on outside is trivial compared to what is going on inside… Don't try to change the structure of the outside world [hoping that] then you'll be fine, then you'll be creative and then you'll be brave. No. First, figure out how to be creative and brave and courageous, and the outside world will change on your behalf…
It's always the same case – it's always the case of you're a human, trying to connect to another human. And if you just pick one human that you can change for the better, with work that might not work – that's what art is.

getting ready!


TAURUS : You remind me of a garden plot that has
recently been plowed and rained on. Now the sun is out. The air is warm.
Your dirt is wet and fertile. The feeling is a bit unsettled because the stuff
that was below ground got churned up to the top. Instead of a flat
surface, you've got furrows. But the overall mood is expectant. Blithe
magic is in the air. Soon it will be time to grow new life. Oh, but just one
thing is missing: The seeds have yet to be sown. That's going to happen
very soon. Right?

Getting ready for the mfa defense in two weeks. The work is near complete, videos are pleasing, frosting cubes and hoops are just about perfect. Now I need to figure out how to transport them, and get my show up to Maine! IT's ALMOST HERE!
