some talk about poo at the animal zoo

Kids are pretty cool. No. They are hilarious and witty, and I am most often left with no response.
Have you ever reached the realization that its better to just stay quiet and let them do all the talking, to save any further embarrassment to your aged wisdom and keep the intelligence you thought you had an abundance of, guarded?
I have, often times too late.

Revisiting life drawing

I went life drawing (with a nude model) a couple of days back for the first time since graduating! It was great! I could feel the rust chipping off my fingers as I tried to identify anatomy and understand the figure. The model was great, very pixie-esque. She did lively, dynamic, gesture oriented poses, except the last one, which was the- I'm done with posing for the day so I'll just lie down for ten minutes- pose.

The session took place inside a small room at  the very ritzy/artsy Gladstone Hotel (which has existed for 123 years, the elevator man told me as I rode up with him on a classic 108 year old elevator all the way up to the second floor!), with jazz music playing from a tape recorder in the background.
