April 25, 2005I can't seem to catch up
This past weekend I watched 2 movies, worked on Christmas Contest video, fed Lyla and Tracy's cats while they were out of town and went to a going away party for one of my ballet teachers. Miya is moving to Sausalito, CA. I will miss her. I found her style of ballet more comfortable than others. I am a modern dancer not a "bun head" and her movement seemed a bit more natural to me. We became friends over the years and she even paid me to sew costumes for her. I took pictures and film at her party but you will have to wait for that. I just now finished the picture page of the Japanese Embassy event (see April 18th entry).
April 18, 2005Mysterious Woman in White
Last weekend the cherry blossoms were in full bloom and Dana performed at the Japanese Embassy. It was a strange but nice little event - invitatation only performance and sushi reception attended by critics and dance company funders. 3 of the 4 dance pieces were choreographed by Japanese choreographer Michio Ito who influenced many American choreographers including Martha Graham. It was a beautiful setting for the performance and the reception. One odd thing was a mysterious woman whom no one knew and who seemed to be alternately sad and angry. By the end of the reception she was on the phone and stomping her foot a lot. It turned out she was a guest of the embassy liaison who acted as host, a very outgoing windsurfing champion named Katsuro (nicknamed Kurt). I'll have pictures up soon. In the meantime here's a little digital camera movie (Quicktime 3.3MB) taken on the embassy grounds. Watch carefully for the foot stomps.
April 3, 2005Visionary Art Museum
I added the Latvian food page!
My parents and Lynda visited from South Carolina this past weekend and Lynda and I met my aunt Zita at one of my favorite museums, the Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. Great new exhibits and it was nice to revisit the old ones. Lenore had sent me an article from the Chicago Tribune about the owner of a great store in Chicago called Uncle Fun who is now running the new expanded gift shop at the Visionary Art Museum. It was definitely new and improved. And we met Uncle Fun!
