LECTURE FOR FILM FOR FALES LAUNCH



LECTURE FOR FALES/FOR VIDEO

Like babies, like infants, like children, like offspring, our art is conceived, then born and positioned in the world. With heartfelt gratitude, I thank MARVIN TAYLOR,  DIRECTOR OF FALES LIBRARY SPECIAL COLLECTIONS. I also thank LISA DARMS, ARCHIVIST OF FALES LIBRARY SPECIAL COLLECTIONS  for adopting, caregiving, tending and sharing 50 years of my practice. Linda, the lifeist, is speechless with emotion.
And I thank my colleagues and friends: KATHY BREW, KAREN FINLEY, LINDA WEINTRAUB and VIRTUAL MARTHA WILSON  for thinking and speaking about me tonight. A night I will never ever forget.
In  Catholic litany style, I will quickly name what's in the archive but please use this as an occasion to place your hands on your own heart and sing a song to your personal inner and outer art child. Honor your personal practice and life.
To rehearse: sing a long tone like a lullaby, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  Good
