doing, undoing, redoing

been reading about louise bourgeois in preparation for writing my review of the spider, the mistress and the tangerine. a fascinating woman. i don't always understand her work, but i am beginning to understand where it was coming from. i think i will focus my review on the idea of art as souvenir, rather than metaphor, re-creation rather than symbolism.

even with my energies focused on one thing, now that the haverford workshop and arcadia exhibit have passed and the portrait of joan's daughter gets perpetually bumped back, the reading is hard-going. read 100 pages of her writings last night, plus a wonderful book called runaway girl, which was more or less a storybook about her life. tonight i was aiming for another hundred, but i was starting to lose focus and tricking myself into being productive by reading from back to front and putting lots of bookmarks in the pages. i think i might call it quits for the evening.

high on the heavens you soar

luca's concert is tonight! and then dexter premiere tomorrow night!
much to do in the waiting.

my priorities for today are as follows:

1) clean up the kitchen
2) go through mail and junk in the dining room
3) pick up luca's suit from the cleaners and get money from bank
4) pre-natal yoga
5) work on samara's room
6) tidy up for parental visit

painting, movie reviewing, getting books from the library and reading harry potter will have to wait.

here's to a full house tonight!
