Learning Puerto Rican Cooking!

Green bananas...keep peel on. Boil five minutes. This is such an amazing dish. It's like a salad marinated. It's called Guineitos en Escabeche

Impromtu Sandwiches For People Who Live Outside

 I asked a Vet friend of ours to help me find a guy I met last week at a warming center for homeless people. He served in Afganistan....and I thought maybe we could help him find a place to live. So we made up some bagged lunches to take while we drove around looking for him. We gave away a lot of bagged lunches. People seem to really love egg salad!!!

We didn't find him last night but I'm going to keep looking this week.

More Odds And Ends From Conference Road Trip

 We stopped along the way at Iowa....with another friend from the McCarthy Society. What's more dangerous than art and a cat on an air mattress!? We had a small art show for our friend and some paintings got a new home!

Taos New Mexico

 Hey check out the mountains above Stagg in pic above. We made a special trip to meet with Lee, who I have been discussing life, the universe and Cormac McCarthy with on the Cormac McCarthy Society web forum for the last ten years. We had such a lovely visit. I fell in love with Taos...hey so did Stagg! And we are going to go back for at least a week next time. Next conference maybe?

Tarot card history, gender in film Hotchcock and Lacan, Hitchcock and identity, reality TV: gold rush, the bachelor, conflict resolution. Rap and hip hop, a linguist talking about spanish in "in the heights" Broadway musical. Classical studies on Tolkien, on touché.

 We are almost ready and packed for our trip to New Mexico next week for the conference in Albuquerque. I am presenting on Friday afternoon. I will post more details. I've got butterflies...and feel like I'm going crazy. But I've picked out what I'mw wearing for presenting my paper and thats the hard part, right? Above are two small paintings I made of Cameron Diaz's ward robe at the end of THE COUNSELOR. the cover of my compilation dvd. Four of my short films are in this dvd compilation. We also have a booth for my husband Stagg, and my art work. I am nervous....but good...
