I am a wife and a post-modern mama of three little babes, a girl and a boy....and hooray!... another new little girl! I graduated college with an art degree and I am an educator and an artist of no particular medium. I enjoy neatly folded things in my life. I don't look like I like lovely things, but I do. I wear black, it's just what I do, it makes me happy. One of my life goals is to have five pairs of identical black pants that fit well and 15 shirts of identical material and color that each possess different collar and sleeve characteristics.
encouraging stuff and weird cheesy stuff like the sound tracks to the Last of the Mohicans, Robin Hood, John Adams, Braveheart.
I adore many different intelligent children's books, and Robert Sabuda and his pop-up book artistry never ceases to amaze me. I like art crit and art history books also, I like a book that engages me. Hitchhikers Guide, Smoke and Mirrors, and On a Pale Horse are also okay ones.
THX 1138, Northfork, Hotel Rwanda, alice, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the Cowboy Bebop movie, the fountain, Syriana, Like Water for Chocolate, children of men, fiddler on the roof, west side story, Pi, babel, the island, equilibrium. I love art and artistic films. We chose not to have a TV in our house though.
I love reconfiguring things and finding pretty arrangements.....often Haim Steinbach style. Oh, and I pretty much want to do anything to make an interesting environment for my children to grow up in.
Cultural insurrection...that kind of thing:)

pink, excessive girly-girlishness, gothness/horror/scariness/melancholy, dotees, coffee, patriotic americana, insects, overly knick-knack-ishness, people hating for the sake of hating, perfume/cosmetics/overly-scented things, any cartoon characters, things that say 'diva', 'princess' 'booty-licious' and other words of that sort, oh and idolatry...i mean any religious images and paraphernalia.
I may still be able to appreciate such things, I just think ideas and efforts involving the above mentioned items might be wasted on me.
you do not receive a package or rating from me, please let me know. I will always send and rate, it's not at all rude to remind me or inform me if I somehow overlook such things.
