my grandmother is in a box that looks like the cell phone we gave her when she moved to the nursing home. picked it frosted pink with silver trim. filled it with phone numbers of her family. set it next to her bed. pink for breast cancer and crocheted hats and mary kay samples, lipstick and blush on paper cards. drugstore diamonds I never thanked her for and I never called and I think she was gone too far anyway. and so instead this matching box, these flower arrangements, these photos of her in yellow cap and gown, smiling with dark hair, looking like my sister.


Review of Tinderbox Lawn

my review of Tinderbox Lawn by Carol Guess is up at Dusie.


since I last wrote, my lovely boy has gotten his own blog going. he has lots of good updates on art walks and events in our funny little city, and some great photos of public art in Tucson. go read him!


I hope to see a revival of the Pillbox project someday soon. winter and working full time is hard.
