her blog for recent work from Sicily, St. Croix and, of course, the Berkshires, and her website for more. The colors are especially nice in this interminable whiplash gray weather.
And speaking of art, my brother-in-law sent me a link to this painting, an homage to his house next door to me in the Block Island compound. We're all trying to monetize our art, and—damn—it ain't easy.

Get ready for spring's outdoor topless pulp fiction read-ins!

Duck and Bunny, a Snuggery. This is a seriously high end cupcake shop with sea salt caramel frostings and actress Emma Watson (of Harry Potter fame) sipping the occasional cuppa. (Well, "snuggery" says it all, really. Probably should be "sugary.")

In other news, if you see pictures of my Block Island houses listed on Craig's List in Providence, beware. There is someone—not I!—advertising Hannah's as an apartment, using pix and garbled copy from VRBO.

I don't know what would happen to the poor people who showed up thinking they had the house.
