by the glow of the monitor...

Some of you are wondering where the geeky chick is.

She thinks that February has been a month full of crap and is lying in wait for March. Really... is it March yet?

I am quite ready for spring. Damn that groundhog... he just *had* to see his shadow, didn't he? I really need some sun and some fresh air... I think we *all* could stand to get a little of that!

When I was in Hawaii, I complained that the weather never changed, and that there were no obvious seasons... well, except that it rained a little more in the "winter months". In retrospect, it was pretty darned good. I didn't have to have seasonal wardrobes, I could wear sandals ninety-nine percent of the time (even in the office... ooo), and I drove a scenic route every single day. Bah... the grass is always greener, isn't it (literally)?

Anyways, onto the weekend highlight(s).

Kev and I got to go gallery hopping on Saturday. My main purpose was to see the Richard Avedon exhibit at the Fraenkel Gallery, and we ended up perusing all the other galleries that reside at 49 Geary Street. Good stuff.

Now all I have to do now is write a paper on it... easier said than done, though. Interpretation, comparison and contrasting of Avedon's work? I need to think about this one. Or maybe I need a cuppa java first.

I can't believe that even though I just had midterms, finals are just around the corner. I guess that's the quarter system for ya...
(oh, and BTW, thanks to eric for getting me to read PhD, heh)

It means spring is right around the corner, though!


Hey no fair, I showed you the PhD book at Lee's Comics, ages ago :)

Just the same, let me pinch a quote from Jorge, who pinched it from Edgar Degas, because I think it bears a lot on Avedon: "It is all very well to copy what you see, but it is much better to draw only what you still see in your memory. This is a transformation in which imagination collaborates with memory. Then you only reproduce what has struck you, that is to say the essential, and so your memories and your fantasy are freed from the tyranny which nature holds over them."

I've waited patiently for your return.

And now that you have, I can return to the elseworlds.
