In Summary and in Clothing

Today I am looking at tennis dresses. Stella McCartney has done some beautiful things for ADIDAS often in black. Tennis Warehouse has a great skort by Lucky in Love.

Hello, Vernal Equinox 2016

Monday I went to the opening of the Socially Relevant Film Festival at Albertine Books to think about adapting novels into films. I met some young filmmakers and some writers. Including Amitabh Joshi who has studied at SVA. Here is a sample of his work.  And I met another SVA graduate, (Victor?) who made the film Two and Twenty Troubles.

Here is a nice trailer of the film festival:  SRFF 2016. Here are my notes from the talk:

Muppets, Earth Day, Human Highway, Schubert

Muppets, Earth Day, Human Highway, Schubert

This past week has been busy with meetings. Tuesday, I met with Janelle, my case worker at Institute for Community Living, then saw Linda Montano at the Fales Library. Wednesday, I met with Katie, my caseworker at Coalition for the Homeless. Thursday, I joined the CAP program at CFTH. Friday, I was supposed to meet Rich, from Strandbooks at The Met Museum, but ended up watching little league baseball in the park and seeing the printmaking show at ASL. Outside the show I met Lance Owen AF Vet Medical Assistant seeking help to open a small adult day care and thrift store while simultaniously advertising for bicycle rentals. Saturday, I went to Washington Square Park to “table” with Florindo for Peace Action Manhattan. (I met Florindo a few years ago when I rode up to Albany with MetCouncil On Housing.) Then, I met Michael, who I know from Foundation Center to watch Human Highway at the IFC.


Human Highway is very perfect, especially for Peace and Planet. IFC has pre-view for a Documentary called, I Am Big Bird, the Caroll Spinney Story which inspired me to watch this other Sesame Street Documentary.

The Wright Height

Last month, I went to Florida to visit my mother. The first week, we took the one hour drive to Florida Southern College to see the Frank Lloyd Wright campus and tour the new Usonian House. The campus seems to be built for short people, but I was assured that FLW (5'9") did not intend to exclude tall people from using the buildings and covered walkways...only to cause a feeling of reverence. The campus is undergoing a much needed renovation.
