Another Interlude

I’ve been home since Tuesday night, and am still quite tired and so am blissfully relaxing. For the first time in six years, I’ll be home till late summer (except for a nearby solo show), and I’m very happy about that.  The past nine weeks gave me a great deal to write about, but at the moment, I am just not in the mood for words, nor for the various manifestations of the internet. Mostly, I am thinking about the gardens, about what to plant and about being here to enjoy the growing, and of working in my own studio, which is lovely and cool in summer: perfect. 

Brian Dettmer sent me this photo last week.  It was part of a feature on books in the Sunday magazine of El Periodico de Catalunya, a large newspaper in Spain. It’s titled “Books with Interior Lives” and tells where to find Brian’s work in Barcelona, talks about the DCCA exhibition, and says: “Visual lesson for those who question the future of the physical book. Example: book-mushroom by Melissa Jay Craig.”  Muchas gracias.
