    ... in my reading.

    I'm plowing through Antonio Damasio's The Feeling of What Happens for many reasons -- one of which is that my colleague in Amsterdam utilizes Damasio's insights about Neuron Science in her Dance workshops. (She's on a first-name basis with him.)

    It's nourishing to my mind -- like carrots, celery, broccoli, and all those other things you'll see uneaten at the party table.

    If I wasn't such a lazy slug, I could share insights into how we process the kinds of events that shape our lives from his studies, and why we put up with horrifying literary scenarios like Bookgirl described in her brilliant diary earlier this week (see CFK's rec' list) -- made me wanna go gargle bleach to feel better.

    Recently, most of my time has been spent on my own (collaborative) art projects. If anybody's interested in what I'm doing, here's one of my pretty pictures, followed by a link to my ten-minute "film" from whence it came:

    San Francisco April 5, 2013

    Our local Film Society ran it on May 1st on the same big screen where I saw Woodstock when it was new. I won no prizes, but the Film Society immediately asked me for more Dance vids when I get back from Amsterdam in the fall.
    They chose to play it second-to-last, as a bridge between two of the prize-winners that night -- the audience, mostly film-makers, responded very well to this "break," kinda like a cartoon (my image), but I could happily make these type of cartoons for the rest of my life!
