Myself, I'm more of an afternoon person, so when I saw this on my way home from the store, I pulled the car over and got out!

Go see some wonderful photos of an area near here, taken by one of my Apple co-workers.

Thanks David for getting up so early to hunt for the day!

LaVonne reminded me that I'd not reported in on Maya Angelou's talk. It was great! I've heard her so often on the radio and TV and she was even more inspiring in person. She has great delivery - beautiful sounding voice whether singing, reciting poetry or just telling tales.

I enjoyed the concepts that she presented -- that we all impact the lives of others intentionally or unintentionally. We may never know what effect we have.

The other take home message was that we should never denigrate our own worth or the value of our lives, if only because the lives of others have already "paid our way." So our ancestors and others in society, however unknown to us have made it possible for us to be here today, living our lives in the world that we live in.

I enjoyed the fact that although she wove together mainly these two concepts, the talk was wide ranging and wonderfully illustrated.

Two thumbs up.

"Collecting data is only the first step toward wisdom, but sharing data is the first step toward community."

IBM gets it. Large (8MB) file version, but viewable (since the links on the IBM page seem to have major issues).... here)

FYI - My Berkshire Quilt Festival lecture will be 11-12ish (I have a way too big pile of quilts stacked up in my sewing room at the moment!)

Wow. A productive few days. Yesterday I spent a lot of time stacking up quilts and thinking about the talk I'm giving on Sunday at the Berkshire Quilt Festival. Yes that's right folks! Come to the Berkshire Community College in Pittsfield MA on Sunday morning and hear yours truly talking about quilting and my own quilts. Anyway, yesterday stacking and thinking.

In between stuff, some sewing. I figured I had practiced that little tiny stippling enough to make it count so ta-da! I finished one of my grant quilts that was waiting to be quilted. Yes that's right. You can see a larger view by clicking above or click here for a closer view.
