November Day in DC

Yep, we are still back in November, and pretending it’s fall – and also unseasonably warm – not a whole lot different from today, actually. I was wearing a winter coat two days ago, and it’s 76F now. After the artist event, aside from going out for an exhausted celebratory dinner with Doug, and our guest, Susan, I took the … Continue Reading →


Artist Event

The following is an event I organized that turned into a massive project, that has turned into one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. I posted about our having a media day for JWST back in November. We also wanted to have a social media component to it, but we’re always trying to come up with ways to … Continue Reading →

Onwards through October. Some pretty color at Allen Pond: We checked out this cute kids garden at Watkins Park. Anniversary dinner at Bonefish Grill.

2016 Year in Review – costumes

I had another personally busy year so I focused mostly on small projects, accessorizing things I already had, wearing things I hadn’t yet worn, repairing things I wore once (ie, taking them in), and trying to finish things I started last year. I was largely successful at that. I wasn’t successful at much else. Small things: – I sewed a … Continue Reading →


Bok Tower

It’s not Thursday, but I’m throwing back, since I posted these photos back in 2009 – and I still think this was a really cool place, and I’m glad to have visited! It’s Bok Tower, in central Florida, which is a beautiful big garden, designed by Frederick Olmstead, with a “Singing Tower,” which has carillon bells. I highly recommend a … Continue Reading →


New song

My band is working on finishing up a few more original tunes for our second album. Here’s our latest. I’m pretty in love with the resonator guitar we used on it.


JWST Media Day

We had a big media day for JWST in early November – the planning for it was totally intense, but it definitely paid off. I helped out where I could, but my big contribution to the day came in the afternoon, when we had an event for artists. I’ll get into that for another post though. :-) The media portion … Continue Reading →


Band gig!

My band used to gig relatively regularly, especially when Kevin, our bass player, was working on the last Hubble servicing mission. He worked for a guy that liked to throw parties (on his own dime), and we played a bunch of them. But after that, two band members started work on a mission where they were in Japan a lot … Continue Reading →
