A CANDLE FOR MOMMOM

Dios te salve, María, llena eres de gracia: El Señor es contigo. Bendita tú eres entre todas las mujeres. Y bendito es el fruto de tu vientre, Jesús. Santa María, Madre de Dios, ruega por nosotros pecadoros, ahora y en la hora de nuestra muerte, Amén.

WOMAN OF THE WEEK IV


I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass.

BY GOLLY, WATSON!

James Watson (right) and Francis Crick discovered the structure of DNA in 1953. Apparently, as they walked in the Eagle Pub in Cambridge, Crick announced, 
"We have found the secret of life."
Happy nearly 60 years since humans have witnessed the building blocks of life.

AIN'T NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS



My official website is up!  I am so excited to have a place where collaborators (and other interested folks) may easily find all my info, papers, presentations, and general background. I have now referenced this blog there and that site here and now we are all caught in a continuum of referencing back and forth forever and ever and...

ANTEOJOS DE SOL.

There is just something about wearing sunglasses, eating burritos, and laying on the beach with my best friends that never seems to get old. 
 See you again soon I hope, California, ttfn.
mermaids exist.

I fell in love with a teensy 5 month old new friend on St. Patty's day and now we are roommates and adventurers and loungers and eaters and cuddlers. I cannot wait to see what trouble Tiny will stir up in the years to come. Welcome home lil nugget.

THE COUNTESS KATHLEEN AND VARIOUS LEGENDS AND LYRICS

In honor of half my blood on this St Patrick's Day, I'll share a poem by my favorite Irish poet, William Butler Yeats. It is called The Countess Cathleen in Paradise.
SHOUTOUT to all my Kathleen sistas over there in the fair green land.

All the heavy days are over;
Leave the body's coloured pride
Underneath the grass and clover,
With the feet laid side by side.

Bathed in flaming founts of duty
She'll not ask a haughty dress;
Carry all that mournful beauty
To the scented oaken press.

Did the kiss of Mother Mary
Put that music in her face?
Yet she goes with footstep wary,
Full of earth's old timid grace.

'Mong the feet of angels seven
What a dancer glimmering!
All the heavens bow down to Heaven,
Flame to flame and wing to wing.

WILD IN SEATTLE

Met some new friends whilst galavanting with some old friends last month! The charming Kimberley Gordon, mastermind of Wildfox Couture, traveled to Seattle from LA with fun girlfriend in tow and told their cute tale here. I was so entranced by her captures of our fair city, I couldn't help but give it credence here on LMK also! Go look at all her GREAT pics of the voyage and love on the amazingness that is WILDFOX. 
Drinks at one of my faves, Oddfellows.

ART IS THE QUEEN

"Art is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world."
-Leonardo Da Vinci

fave nook.
 Tokens of a religious nature, family heirlooms, small trinkets, mostly anything I've taken a fancy in over the years has accumulated in boxes I carry with me everywhere. I can not part from even the tiniest of miraculous medals random convents send me from putting my name on some Catholic mailing list years ago. I always know I will want them or need them at some point; something about their delicateness gives me a strange peace. 


goodies.
 With the help of some teensy tools, I made a couple rings tonight.  One is a St. Lucy medal, a name and story I've always loved (legend says she survived being burned alive after refusing to be put into prostitution by her betrothed, what a guy). The other cabochon back I painted gold (same color I painted my favorite little apartment nook above) and glued in a medal with the dove of the Holy Spirit. The artist in me won tonight, back to science tomorrow.

BIG HANDS.
 itty bitty ring on left hand is my grandmother's, pearl on right from Forever 21.
Let me know if you have a ring in mind you'd like made, I may start a little kitten business.

RATATAT-OUILLE

Contrary to popular opinion (aka my mother's and ex's), I CAN cook.  I made this Ratatouille dish because the colors and concentric circles are enchanting.  Vegetables and I have become best friends these past couple years, I basically only cook meat now for my Thanksgiving extravaganzas.  Stupid QFC didn't have squash but THAT'S OK BECAUSE YOU CAN JUST PUT IN MORE PEPPERS!  

SpiRalZ 
mah kitch.

note : antique cat table runner.  Thanks Ma.
Make it with couscous, don't skimp on the goat cheese or you're going straight to hell, add wine, and voila, you're a chef depicted as a cartoon rat in an endearing children's movie.
  And you're not hungry anymore.

SPORTS FAN?

I finished my latest scarf.  I just like green & blue best of all the rainbow but then it was brought to my attention how very Seattle that combo conjures.  Guess I need to go to more games.
