Season's Greetings


Love this card from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Reminds me again of the many holiday seasons that I have spent in Japan.
Especially the year that I spent chasing Hiroshige in Tokyo.

Clear and Present Danger



Trump has sought foreign intervention in US elections—twice.

Even in the midst of this impeachment inquiry, Trump declared: not only should Ukraine investigate the Bidens, but China should, too.

He poses a real and present danger to the integrity of the next election.

Dr. Fiona Hill Brings the Truth



Fiona Hill - "The unfortunate truth is that Russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked our democratic institutions in 2016. This is the public conclusion of our intelligence agencies, confirmed in bipartisan Congressional reports. It is beyond dispute."

What was it like to be a woman making art during the feminist and civil rights movements? In this season of Recording Artists, host Helen Molesworth delves into the lives and careers of six women artists spanning several generations. Hear them describe, in their own words, their work, relationships, and feelings about the ongoing march of feminism. Contemporary artists and art historians join the conversation, offering their own perspectives on the recordings and exploring what it meant—and still means—to be a woman and an artist. This podcast is based on interviews from the 1960s and ’70s by Cindy Nemser and Barbara Rose, drawn from the archives of the Getty Research Institute.

30 Years Ago Today - The Berlin Wall Came Down






Checkpoint Charlie
Checkpoint Charlie
Walls so wide, can't get around it
Walls so high, can't climb over
Gotta come down
Checkpoint Charlie
Brothers and sisters on the other side
Livin' in the shadow of a wall so high
Make me wanna cry
I know that someday we'll be together
If we really want it
Nothin' that hurts gonna last forever
Why do we let it happen
Or is it that we don't mind
Somebody bein' punished for their fathers' crimes
