Thank You

Thank You RC Sayler, for sending me this picture of
Étant Donnés, semi installed:

Thank You Michael Jones McKean, for inspiring me and getting me through a one-day sculpture,

And Thank you to Gilbert and George, who though this single work shown in Venice this summer, created seven years before I was, make me feel good about making art, and right in my ways.

Arlo and Me and The Endless Providence Rain

My wanna-be boyfriend. He is trying to teach me how to relax.

This weekend was a bit overwhelming, but thanks to a professional massage, I spent two hours thinking about the difference between "relaxing" and "resting." Resting is what you do in front of a television, or while lying in bed trying to go to sleep and not think about all your worries. Relaxing, on the other hand, seems to me to be involving yourself in an activity that actually RELIEVES stress, and allows you to feel peaceful and let go. This is much harder to accomplish.

While we're on the subject or stress relief, may I recommend the ridiculous and indulgent website disapproving rabbits... I can't believe there is a whole blog about this. Or how much time I spent looking at it.
