So the light travels from the surface of the sun (behind building on left) 93 million miles to the shiny building on the right, bounces off that onto the building on the left, then bounces off that through the camera's lenses and onto the CCD. Then it gets processed and sent to flickr, where it ends up on your screen. The light goes from the screen into your eye, and after more processing finds its way to your brain. The end.

9/17 Lm for Dr Davis. Please call.
Heard back from Dr Davis. She might have gotten the release I sent. Hasn't seen cl in a while. Says that she sent info to SSA. Will not send records to me.

Left home with a bag of yarn but no crochet hook today. Luckily, I work in an office, so there was a pencil that I could requisition and whittle into a makeshift hook during Case Conference. Was then able to proceed with manufacture of Convict Hand Puppet for Prison/Induxstrial-Complex Puppet Theater.
I think that my dad was able to perform an emergency tracheotomy using a razorblade and a ball-point pen. Really amounts to pretty much the same thing, nu?

Do you like bats? I do. This bat's for Mary.
People will tell you, "Oh, you needn't be afraid of bats--they're more afraid of you than you are of them." Well, that's bullshit! This one's not afraid of you or the cats. This bat wants to make a high-pitched squeeky-noise and get all tangled up in you hair. And give you rabies, which the only way they can treat it is to cut off your head! So you'd best look out for bats, if you know what's good for you.

Yesterday was all burny in the hot oil sloshing out of the skillet sense. I'd like to thank Mary for always keeping aloe in the fridge, and Cathy for stocking our freezer with frozen strawberries and rhubarb. Quite therapeutic.
Good lentils through adversity, though.

Process shot of the back of the batwings. Paper coated with acrylic gel in preparation for a collaged layer of iridescent charcoal grey acetate fabric. For anatomy & proportions, I'm using this fine photograph. Nice shot, Isadore Berg!
On the other side of the paper, I've constructed a skeletal wing structure of almond colored silicone sealant.
