a note to kevin mullins-curator, ulrich museum

thank you for the great news and your hard work and patience -
as a curator you must be relieved and very pleased with the outcome.

i'm pouring through edward said's "from oslo to iraq"
wonderful- and very illuminating concerning recent events
as tony judt makes clear in the book's forward: edward said's "death opens a yawning void in american public life. he is irreplaceable." but we must go on without him.

here's hoping that your curatorial work in presenting emily jacir's moving piece will lead to more understanding...

take care

Hello again
Michele sent me again.
Always happy to return to see the intriguing artwork.
What medium do you use? I wish I could learn to use chalks (pastels, etc.) so that I could draw the morning sunrise on the snowcapped mountains out here in Colorado.
