Metropolis II.

I would love to see this work in person. Maybe one day in the not-too-distant future I'll get to LA and LACMA and make it happen. In the meantime, this short film will have to do the trick.

I'm really looking forward to coming up with some new designs that incorporate these great beads I got at the Whole Bead Show in Manhattan over the weekend...

Colorful smaller African phono beads...

Solid brass beads in three different shapes...

Serpentine heishi beads, hematite discs, dalmatian jasper squares, large stabilized turquoise rondelles and interlocking beads.

Sometimes I go to this show with a list of things I'm looking for, but I usually have more fun discovering something I didn't even know I wanted... the ideas start popping into my mind right there.

Lazy Sunday, on toast.

Turning the clocks forward an hour last night gave me the perfect excuse to make this a very lazy Sunday. I slept in until 9 a.m. (I'm up by 6:15 weekdays and usually before 8 on weekends!) and made myself a delicious breakfast a couple of hours later (I've been trying to pace my eating a bit as I've been putting on a few pounds).

Like so many others here on the interwebs, I have become a convert to the pleasures of avocado toast. As a child I found it such a treat when my mom would put avocado in our salads at dinner, but as an adult I had lost my joy for the green fruit... Something about the texture just didn't agree with me, but recently I had been rethinking this opinion.

As part of my makeshift "diet" I thought it would be good to cut back on my use of butter (I use Olivio spreadable butter, which has healthy fats blended with dairy cream) and figured nutrient-dense avocado would be a much more satisfying and delicious spread for my toast. My current "recipe" is one half a very ripe avocado roughly mashed with red pepper flakes, fresh cracked pepper, and salt to taste. Spread on two slices of darkly-toasted Trader Joe's Multigrain Rustico Bread and savor. Delicious, healthy fats, healthy grains, and totally indulgent.

PS: I've made a few small changes to the blog layout. I'm not a coding whiz so I just stuck with the tools that Blogger offers. The biggest change, as you may or may not have noticed, is a new photo on my banner. Let me know what you think!
