Studio Sunday for Masscribes Talk

I'll be speaking about my work at this coming Saturday's Masscribes Holiday Gathering in Norwood, MA. This quote from T. S. Eliot's poem Little Gidding will be the opening slide. I did the calligraphy with the folded pen I made in Carol DuBosch's wonderful Folded Pen Adventures workshop at Masscribes.

I'll be talking about how and why I fell in love with calligraphy almost forty years ago, how and why I fell out of love about ten years later, and how I have come back again with a new and joyful spirit. As with my work, I like to have my talks evolve organically. I never write anything down. I build the presentation by talking to myself and pairing the talking with images. I may also try to put these thoughts into an essay but that is a separate process.
