I've been quiet for a few days trying to separate myself from Saipua a bit...which is really hard when I live around the block from the shop and all my junk is there, including my boyfriend and his junk. There may be a better way to say that..

Easter was nice. My little sister and her giraffe-patterned 5-inch heels came up from Atlanta for the weekend. Susan picked up lamb from Hemlock Hill Farm* (incidentally the same farm where my childhood friend boarded her pet sheep) which was roasted and eaten and excellent. My father interrogated us about current politics, whether we've watched the Ralph Nader disks he burned for us three months ago and who of our friends (or their parents) didn't believe in evolution. He then donned a headlamp for eating dinner.

This was an arrangement I made Monday with sweet pea, anemones, parrot tulips, jasmine, flannel flowers and muscari.

It's going to be warm and lovely here today...I need to turn off Nico, wash my hair and leave the house...so I'll leave you with this amazing piece of hippie-history. A 1971 video of dancers enacting the process of amino acids linking to form protein.
