Being used to the Stockholm subway, I never thought about it before I saw those photos... it's rather clean, isn't it? They weren't photoshopped, it looks like that.

An event held four times a year in downtown.

Really, it's about the people who are doing the art.

Not that UCM is a sponsor or a partner of the Merced Art Hop, but the UCM students seem to really appreciate our interest in the arts, and they support our downtown businesses efforts to encourage them...

Who could ask for more?

It's early days, you may still have a chance at it. It was just hung yesterday in the window to show with two others of hers.

You might like to hang it thus.

When out walking on a tour of town yesterday I went into see Miss Ann at the Merced Montessori School. Bevin, my daughter, attended there and then went to her mom's to K-thru-the-rest.

I had been thinking of going in there for years, in fact, and I found her in, she had a brief moment, and I told her of her student's success as a female lawyer, etc. Bragging is good if it makes each of us feel good about the person of whom we are speaking.

Miss Ann has a grip like a teacher!

I also took time, since I was in the neighborhood, to knock on Dudley's door. He and Boomer played golf every Wednesday afternoon with two other of their friends for decades. He was a lawyer, and he handled the affair of my lost thumb in the sixties.

He had a fall recently, went into rehab, and just got out. He sat and listened to my adventures a bit, then we discussed a matter, with me explaining how I needed his good advice as Dad's old buddy, a thinker, a planner. He was only to happy to comply. It felt good to be able to look at him and recall our own times together on golf courses and in Wawona, especially, where my late wife and I spent our honeymoon in 2990.

It's good to visit older folks, even just a few minutes gets you into the Age of Before and you think how you never knew till you heard the guy spiel...

Those wee the high lights of the day, for me. I hope it was the same for Miss Ann and for Dudley.

I blame Art for freeing me to do things not conventional, not the norm, not the quotidian. I'm no Pollock, but it's a crazy world, and to try to make sense of it, a sense of continuity is sometimes more needed than outrageeous nouveau chic of the month. Dudley has some nice work at his place in Wawona. I wanna go there to see it and judge it again after all that time away.

hey there, say, mouse... wow, this is an absolutely abSOULutly wonderful
post! yes, the older folks and their 'art of learned skills' ALONG with their art, is to be treasured by us!

art and artwork, does that to us... it helps us to SEE more beauty than many folks ever get to realize is 'hiding completely insight' ...

:)

turning see that WE SEE into neat art, is so fun, yet--we DO have to 'see' it first, or: we could pass it by...

passing it by, means, we lose the live art of it...
and we lose the 'new staged-in-paint' art of it, later, as well...

thanks for inspiring us!!!
