Re: “My Heart Can’t Even Believe It

I have worked with children for over 20 yrs. but only once with a child diagnosed with Down Syndrome and he was also profoundly mentally retarded so I am very eager to read about Safie. I did once go bowling with an aquaintance and her 21 yr old brother who was, more than anything, very bossy. He was a completely different example of Down Syndrome. Like all of us, the diagnosis does not make the unique individual who carries it any different deep down. This story will be about Safie who has Down Syndrome, not Down syndrome that has Sofie. I want to learn about DS but even moree I want to get to know Sofie and her family.

Re: “Art About Town

I really appreciate being able to visit artists in their workspaces and some even in their homes to view their artwork and talk to them about it, making that personal connection.

Re: “Epic Musical

Thanks for caring, Pasquale. As you may have noticed, I've been invited to give a talk about YOU, FASCINATING YOU at a yacht club in Naples, Florida. Interest in the novel and musical continues to build.

Re: “Epic Musical

I don't know what happened to my old friend Jim Hatch that I told you I would get you in touch with 3-4 weeks ago. He never got back to me, but I m sure I will hear from him one of these days. Good luck with Margit & Pasquale.

Re: “Famous And Heinous

A few years back my life had no meaning, it was like i was struggling to exist but not for long. On my way home one evening i met a very successful friend of mine. We talked about so many things and i opened up to him on how my life was a constant bed of struggles. He told me he would help me. He told me all about the Illuminati and gave me an email address ( ) that i could use to contact them. I contacted the Illuminati immediately through the email address given to me by my friend. Membership was easy. After i requested for membership into the Illuminati through the above email address, i was initiated into the Illuminati. Three days after initiation, $9 000 000 was sent to my bank account by the Illuminati, i was asked what i wanted to do with my life and i said i wanted to go into construction business. The Illuminati guided me all the way and today my business is worth hundreds of millions of dollars I was a man who had nothing before but now i'm a man of wealth, fame and power. I oblige you to take this seriously and i assure you, you'll be glad you did. Contact ( ) so that you too can become all you've ever wanted.

Re: “Magic in the Night

Great exhibit, don't forget Kevin Lucero Less' Hollywood Nocturne 8:45, moody - menacing - and ethereal.

Re: “The Philosopher’s Stone

We saw it about a week ago with agnostic friends and found it to be quite boring. We quipped on leaving that it was without intermission to prevent the audience from leaving at half time. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Re: “Earth Views

The Etherton Gallery is a wonderful resource for photographic art. Fortunately, while the University of Arizona Library system's horribly mismanaged Center for Creative Photography continues downward in a "death spiral", we still have the Etherton Gallery!

Re: “Keeping Tucson Tucson

I love TCPS and it's become one of my favorite communities of folks in Tucson after taking just a few woodblock printing classes with Joe. Love the spirit and goals of the printshop and have hopes that they will continue to adapt and grow into the printshop Tucson needs. If you haven't been before just stop by and check out the art being created there! You're bound to walk away with at least a sticker.

Re: “Keeping Tucson Tucson

I stopped going to Tanline because the owner is hard to deal with not because print making is frustrating and i dont think other tucsonans "lack some combination of time, money and desire to prioritize an esoteric craft" I think some of them felt uncomfortable dealing with him and other people there too. I I just dont want people trying to start community print shops to be discouraged by Jakes failure because Id be willing to go and print again

Re: “Keeping Tucson Tucson

When my wife and I visited Tucson in 2007 we liked the town but were put off by the fact that there was little in the way of a downtown. In Madison WI where we currently live as well as in other places we visited we were used to being able to 'go downtown' and find something going, arts, restaurants and bars, etc. We had heard that there was a 'new' downtown before we returned to Tucson last year and we liked what we saw and experienced. The activities available were quite a our opinion for the positive. We still find Tucson to be very affordable.
We bought a home on the east side of Tucson and are moving there next week!

Re: “Abstraction and Reality

I truly enjoyed the Estenger mid career survey! To view his extraordinary work in this beautiful space is a great experience. I look forward to seeing more from him!

Re: “Epic Musical

Thank you, Pasquale. I would like to think that your namesake in the above-referenced musical is singing in his grave. The producer is on-board!

Be well,

Re: “Pilobolus Pounces

Jordan's the real deal. A year or two ago, I had the pleasure of seeing Pilobolus in Scottsdale. The show was amazing.
