Happy International Dance Day

A photo I took last week at Alabama Ballet of Southern Dance Works Dancers in rehearsal for their spring show! I have been really leaning on dance recently to stay sane...and it works that way for so many of us! Really enjoyed on Tuesday the Twitter #whydancematters and all the beautiful things people shared all day long. Go to twitter and search #whydancematters to see all the beautiful things said.

Bucky's Dome

I crashed a party yesterday. I love crashing parties, but that's besides the point. The party was in Carbondale on the corner of Forest and Cherry Streets at what was once the residence of R. Buckminster Fuller.  You've seen his designs and inventions, even if you've never realized it before.  His most recognizable contribution is the geodesic dome, which is the design of this house where he lived from 1960-1972.  This week marked the 50th anniversary of the house, and many events around town centered on it. I noticed a reception at the house yesterday, so I thought I'd poke my head in. This view is the living room and loft of the house. As you can see, its still undergoing some renovation.

Grey Gardens

Sometimes everything feels like Grey Gardens (ya know two old crazy ladies living together by themselves with a bunch of cats...) hoping that feeling wears off soon. In the meantime I am going to see Dane Peterson's production of Grey Gardens when it opens next week and I was so honored to be asked to photograph the cast. So here it is...Big Edie and Little Edie.

Bald Knob

Its certainly been a while, but it feels good to post a new picture!  I'll be in Southern Illinois for another three weeks before going back to Western Massachusetts for the summer. One of the many secret places in S.I. is Bald Knob, and top of this hill is a 111-foot-tall cross. It was once completely covered by white porcelain tiles, those have since been removed and the cross is undergoing restoration. I decided I should go see it before I leave.
