Solar cookery or art

Reminded me of an annual hchs Eco student project. In this case it is
art first, cooker second.

Your budget is no excuse for not making art

This is a modular madness project requiring students to work with 100
or more of the same item. This item...nail clippings! YES!

Truck and trailer loaded

Women & Their Work exhibition:
treading where no one hears
the echo of her foot fall

Two days to load,
two days to install,
two hours to disassemble,
1 to hour load....
several days to figure out how
and to actually store it.

Some things will grow anywhere

unfold (Rainer Maria Rilke)

I want to unfold.
Let no place in me hold itself closed,
for where I am closed, I am false.
I want to stay clear in your sight.

(Rainer Maria Rilke, trans. by Anita Barrows and Joanna Macy)

compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience

Col. 3:12-14 - "... clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity"

Ok. i will continue to work toward this...

Luke 6: 27"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.29If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. 30Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31Do to others as you would have them do to you.
 32"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? ... 33And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? ...34And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you?...' expecting to be repaid in full. 35But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
37"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
 39He also told them this parable: "Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? 40A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.
 41"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 42How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye..."

ok. i will continue to work toward these as well.

And I am such a girl.
