Here is another artist whose work I really like. His name is Kit Malo. Or her? I don't really know. Does it matter? Not really. I love this image--it is so emotional and lovely. You can get some of her/his work on Blueflip Art. Very reasonable, too, besides being just gorgeous. This print is called "Entre le Loup et le Chien."

Wow. Katrine does it again, with a beautiful, mystical piece of art entitled "I do not know you." I can't really articulate or even describe how much I love this piece. I love the way the figure on the right is looking at the woman on the left--and how she is spurning him, just a little bit.

Katrine will be showing some of her work this spring in Hollywood, California, at a gallery called Tinlark. The show will be from April 12 to May 10. Go, Katrine!

Marcy enjoying the view from my Mom's window.

Here's my mom's birdbath, full of lovely fall leaves.

Here's some salvia I planted in my mother's backyard in Burbank, California, two summers ago. She's not a big fan of these plants, but I love them, especially when they're blooming. I took the picture last summer.

feminist motivations . . . (these are from a talk I gave recently to college students)

don't do your boyfriend's (girlfriend's) homework. or write their papers. ever.

don't go out with anyone who makes you feel bad about yourself--even a little bit.

do spend time with people you love--and the people who love you.

don't ever have sex unless you really, truly want to. seriously.

it's okay to ask for pleasure! if the person you're intimate with doesn't or won't reciprocate, dump them. seriously.

don't spend a lot of time looking in the mirror. don't stress about how you look. you look great, believe me.

do love your body. I mean really love it. it's a fabulous, amazing machine--take good care of it, feed it well, use it well, love it.

get to know your body--what makes it happy, what gives it pleasure. boys know this already. but who tells girls its important to know this? I'm telling you now. you need to know how to make yourself happy before anyone else can do it.

don't ever criticize other women for how they look, dress, how much they weigh. criticism of women's appearance perpetuates devaluing women and reinforcing the wrong idea that women are primarily valued for how they look.

realize that everything is political. the personal, in particular, is political. each and every action we take is a kind of political moment. what you put or don't put into your vagina is political. think about this: if your husband beats the shit out of you they used to say "that's a domestic matter--between the husband and his wife."

Stephen Colbert is sexy. He is very smart. Smart is sexy, no? I realized last night that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have made it a little more bearable to live in a world that looks to Dick Cheney and George Bush for leadership. Thank you, guys, for your scathing sarcasm and withering insight into our pathetic administration.

Here is a little photo tribute to the love of my life, Marcy Keeton Younger.
