Katie performed, Katherine read, and Eden rolled around in dirt and fire. Everything pretty much came together in the moment and on the spot. It was a really good evening. (Thanks so much to Aaron Hawn for all of the great photos!)
I drove up to Hinkley, for an open house at the Center for Land Use Interpretation’s Desert Research Center, and to check out a new work by Leroy Stevens. Leroy’s project is an underground sound piece that has to be activated by running over buried metal rods with a metal detector. I don’t have good pictures of the work, but found is a nice description on his site. And I’m always struck by the quiet genius of Matt Coolidge and the Center. Here are some signs from their new interpretive trail…
I know it is time to reorganize my shelves when I can’t find Emmett! (All of the boxes are being stockpiled for a project we will be starting soon for the Palm Springs Museum’s new Architecture and Design Center)
Work is progressing on the Secret Spot and the cabin now has a view! The original porch of the cabin was all boarded up – so we took off the siding and now new windows have been framed in. I’ll eventually have two long tables set up in this front room, it will be such a good space for reading, writing and drawing.
