My Show ' Magic" opening on May 5th in Seattle !

Magicians come to us in two ways.
The kinds that are conjurers, who create an illusion with skilled tricks
And the kind that are teachers who let us understand real magic.
The kind of magic that is around us every day if we only open our senses to it.
The beauty of getting older for me, is that I've gotten more and more attuned to the latter kind of magic
I am exploring deeper every day and night into its mysteries.

RECEPTION 5:30-8:30pm

Tue-Sat: 11:00-6:00 / 1201 Western Avenue, Seattle, WA 98101 / 206.622.7243

Spend three short days with my wonderful friend Jill and her son Evander and my daughter on Whidbey Island. We always rent the same place. Both Jill and I love time on the beach or in the woods, lookign for rocks,  lichen, mushrooms, spending hours crouching low to the ground and using our macro lenses to take the "same" picture.
We also both don't mind eating our meals , literally squeezing our plates between whatever project we brought along to keep our hands busy. This year we are fully engrossed in working in clay.
 It's always blissful out there and always too short.

Mary Oliver and some new images


Every day I see or hear something that more or less

kills me with delight, that leaves me like a needle

in the haystack of light. It was what I was born for - to look, to listen,

to lose myself inside this soft world - to instruct myself over and over

in joy, and acclamation. Nor am I talking about the exceptional,

the fearful, the dreadful, the very extravagant - but of the ordinary, the common, the very drab,

the daily presentations. Oh, good scholar, I say to myself, how can you help

but grow wise with such teachings as these - the untrimmable light

of the world, the ocean's shine, the prayers that are made out of grass?
