back when I smoked…

Stopping smoking is the best thing I’ve ever done for my son, the second, I think, is taking him to the KPM Institute’s SAM School

I was elated at this TED conference video on education, besides being allowed to be free and self-initiate his education at SAMS, Kilean goes to ballet 3 times a week and is in two bands. He wrote a Haiku yesterday, though he has completely forgotten it today. I love you more than anything in the world, Kilean. My wish for you is total freedom.

And since I’m posting videos and talking about creativity, see Leonard Cohen in concert. The most fun I’ve had in a decade was on April 1 at the first Austin concert by the sexiest 70 yr old to ever live and the greatest poet of our time. I’ve been reading and listening to him since I was fifteen. It was me yelling “I love you Leonard” as explained in this review. A magic night alright. You can’t describe it with words. Go see the man if he comes by your town… To make this post a full circle, my friend, the writer Magda Bonet, who took my picture way back when and just sent it to me a million years later and a thousand kisses deep, is very good friends with the virtuoso guitarist Javier Mas who is from my home town.

  1. You look like one of the woman in one of Alain Resnais’ films, or Goddard. Anyway, I really love what you guys are doing. I really want to get into sustainability and environmental design, and even though I don’t have a architecture degree per se, I think it’s something I would like to be involved in in some capacity…any thoughts?
    Any suggestions. I was going to take some course work once I got to Austin…x, H.

    1. I feel the same way, it has been well over a year now and I am so effing proud of myself and happy about it. I feel so much better! We’ve been under inordinate amounts of stress lately, many times cigarettes have entered my mind, dreams, everything, but I feel way to well without the smokes, I can’t believe I ever did smoke and boy did I ever…. but CHANGE IS POSSIBLE, yey!!!!
