Jason Gamrath at The Phipps Conservatory

This summer is special at the Phipps Conservatory because there is a special exhibition of the fine art glass sculptures of Jason Gamrath.There are always a few glass sculptures in the eight rooms of the conservatory but this year the exhibition adds over 80 works from the brilliant young artist. Each room is dramatically changed by the addition of his artwork. The show is not to be missed and runs throughout the summer.

Brilliant Glass at The Phipps Conservatory

I love having a membership at the Phipps because we can visited each season and see an entirely different garden. This summer is special though because there is a special exhibition of the fine art glass sculptures of Jason Gamrath.There are always a few glass sculptures in the eight rooms of the conservatory but this year the exhibition adds over 80 works from the brilliant young artist.

Remembering The Grateful Dead–Phil Lesh

Trying to avoid politics at all cost on Father’s Day we watched The Grateful Dead Movie which I haven’t scene for a long time. I was taken by one scene when during a sound check Phil was talking to a cameraman. He became aware that the camera was causing feedback. He looked like a little kid as he made the camera move closer and farther to play with the feedback. They seemed so happy when they played back then.

A Salute to Fathers

I know Father’s Day is a uniquely American holiday probably created by the greeting card companies or Craftsman tools. But fathers are important in the development of societal norms and in fostering the growth of children. We don’t go through the pain and sacrifice that mothers do and for that reason are sometimes overlooked as being important in a child’s development. However children need two parents and I salute all fathers today who have stayed with their family and provided protection,sustenance and leadership for their children and love them in spite of their flaws.

Short Sabbatical

I am taking a short sabbatical from posting while I perform the second edit of our new DreamMap Novel entitled Worlds Apart. You may recall in the epilogue of DreamMap Jake and Rose teleport out with Stan who needs help with a problem. The second book starts in Dublin on Earth Prime immediately after they teleport. It is much darker than the first novel and ends with a series of twists and major cliffhanger pointing to the third book in the series.

I hope to be back soon with more images and posts but until then I will be off in a parallel world.

Beach Ride

The beaches near Tulum and shielded by a barrier reef. The Caribbean waves here are gentle and perfect for snorkeling,swimming, sand castles and when the tide is out, a beach bike ride, with a friend.

Tulum Panorama

Last year I published some images from Tulum. Tulum is the last Mayan city constructed before the Spanish invasion and conquest of Mexico. It was constructed on the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in what is now the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.

The city was constructed along the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean and served as a port for other Mayan cities like Coba which was the de facto capital of the Mayan Empire. The ruins are fun to visit because afterwards you can swim in the mild Caribbean waters sheltered by a large reef providing gentle waves and pure white sand. It is not as large a site as Chicha Itsa but maybe more beautiful because of the sea.
