A while back I found these images of Victorian shadowboxes, and I think they are pretty awesome. I saw the large, rectangular one at the Staten Island Museum last year. The animals inside are supposed to represent the diversity of wildlife that used to be on Staten Island. In person, it looks absurd...a giant box filled to the max with taxidermied squirrels, pheasants, weasels, etc. ...I love it!

blue lagoon

I had a birthday recently, and celebrated by going to a swimming hole in New Jersey known as the Blue Lagoon. Look how amazing it is! The water is so blue. The sounds of gunshots and four-wheelers are so nearby!

Bird tracks as big as my feet!

We also stopped by Mr. Bill's for some cannoli.

sesame street

When I was little I used to watch a lot of Sesame Street. I forgot how wonderful it was until I spent a ridiculous amount of time on YouTube recently. Really, I had to hold myself back. I could have posted 10 videos. Sesame Street had everything you could possibly want: beautiful 1970s animation, puppets, stop motion, and animal segments that are so cute they make you want to hug an animal to death.

little boats

and I made these while we were at the beach. I want to do it again!

I tracked down some more pictures of the "Sign Language" show.  Some pictures from the opening and of the other pieces are available on this flickr and on these blogs: there were ten tigers and charm city current. And here is a piece made by my friend Patrick:

And here is a pope!
