I don’t think anyone tagged me but I wanted to get in on the 4 seasons of wheeling thing. Is there a hashtag I should use? 🤷🏼♀️ Oh well, what a year it has been! That winter trip was awesome but in the future I might pass on sub-zero wheeling. Brutal!
Dün Sultanahmet'teyken uğrayıp bir Türk kahve içtim burada, çünkü burası benim İstanbul'da en sevdiğim otellerden. Özellikle eğer İstanbul'a turist olarak gelen arkadaşlarınız falan olursa buraya mutlaka götürün, kahve ya da yemeğe. Ambiyansına bayılacaklarına eminim... @fssultanahmet 🎐
My first thought was ‘Oh no.’ I wasn’t ready for a kid. Her mother and I were fuck-ups and addicts. I’d just finished seven years in jail for robbery. But everything changed on #ValentinesDay , 1992. That’s when I found out the baby was going to be a girl. Right away, I started buying all this girly stuff. I was excited. I became more civil. I was going to raise my daughter to be kind and respectful to everyone. So I became that person. And she became that person too. Every day I picked her up from school after work. We went to #theaters , and #museums , and #DisneyWorld three different times. Every year on my birthday we dressed up and got tea at the #FourSeasons . She ended up being the #valedictorian of her class. She went to #Duke on a full scholarship. Now she’s in law school at #NYU . I look at her and I think that she must have done all this by herself. Because I’m kinda ‘street.’ I grew up in the #projects . And she’s gone so much farther than I ever could. So I always thought I had nothing to do with it. But I have #friends who tell me that I made a big difference. And I did always teach her to work hard and do her best. And she told me recently, that when she had to write an essay for her #SAT , she called it: ‘My Father, My Hero.’

“I am drawn to the idea of welcoming the light,” the north county artist explains. And, for the four weeks of Advent—the first season of the Christian church year that includes the four Sundays before Christmas—she anticipates the coming of the season through collage. Melanie Mowinski’s daily collage practice brings what she calls, “a piece of anticipatory goodness, [and] peace,” to a season often filled with conspicuous consumption. If one looks closely, the artist’s use of bird imagery evokes both nesting and rebirth, further evidence of the cathartic process. — From “Keeping Time,” about artists in our community who create calendars and posters to mark more than the changing seasons.
