Grains of sand are still finding their way onto my desk. Here’s the only photo I took during the long weekend during a tech timeout. I am about 100 pages into The Overstory and it is delivering – thank you to @foshee07 & @julienaslund5866 for bringing this book to our close attention. I thought about
Just found out there’s an exhibit of 5 pieces of her work at the Nasher Sculpture Center. I’ve followed her work at local art galleries and museums since the 90’s.
