Dear Estimados

I received a letter once from Rydell, one of the people I met in Cuba. Rydell was the young father of the godson of my friend Claude, and he opened his letter with the salutation “Estimada Amiga” which I translate as “esteemed friend”. I felt valued by this opening, so I’ll continue this post with the same salutation:

Estimados amigos,

WordPress sends me an email every time anyone “likes” something that I post here, or chooses to “follow” my blog. I don’t know proper social networking etiquette, but I assume that thanks are in order. If you’ve “liked” something I’ve posted here, or have chosen to “follow” this blog, thank you kindly. I appreciate your support.

I do check out the blogs of those who “like” my posts or “follow” my blog, and I’ve been impressed by the quality of the work and the ideas, and the diverse interests represented. If you’ve noticed that I did not “follow” you back, please be aware that I “follow” no blogs. Well, that is not strictly true. I “follow” the blog of PJ, a blogger with whom I have shared a mutual in”follow”ation for many years. PJ has not posted in a few years, and I am trying to be there when she does choose to post.

Cheerfully yours,


Ps. the blog and facebook project called “Art Every Day” has been successful, and I am super excited about the piece East 002, that I finished today, because I used a whole bunch of processes that I made up/learned (while making earlier pieces of art) to solve a problem that’s been bugging me for a couple of weeks now.
