I had a very nice Sunday----warm, started with Huevos Rancheros, and involved listening to the Talking Heads with the windows down in the car. Joseph and I went into a book store while we were waiting for the free book store (library) to open and I found the most amazing book. It's by Chris Sickles and the illustrations are photographs of these elaborate set-ups he designs that involve found-objects, puppetry and paintings and all sorts of other whatnot. I loved it so much, I looked at it for a very long time----how I felt when I was looking at it reminded me of how I felt when I watched Triplets of Bellville for the first time on the big screen, it's hard to describe the feeling, but it's a hodge-podge of happy, excited, nostalgic and slightly artistically frustrated because I want to make great things too. Anyway, then I looked him up online and discovered that he has a blog (!) AND he lives in Indianapolis (I live in a town just an hour south from there). See, there IS more than corn in Indiana!
