buzzing through

After successfully installing her show at a college in New Jersey, Jessica Rath buzzed by for a visit. "A Better Nectar" is an installation including sculpture, "flat art," specially composed music and interactive sound (based on nearby NOAA weather forecasts)—all coordinated to give the visitor an experience of how bees and flowers interact to their mutual benefit. Yes, it's rather cerebral, as well as sensual. Jess is the daughter of my artist friends Ann and Bill Dugan, sometime neighbors in Thomasville, Mo. I meet up with her every five or ten years. I think it went, NY, LA, Mo, Mo and now NY again. I'm always fascinated by what she's thinking about and what kind of art she's making. I am now pulling for her to write. Which she has been doing.

That's the town square of West Plains, Mo., behind us.

Dear Goddess: This image of your great and unsurprising beauty has catapult Li to leave his remote monastery and once again seek you, much as Galahad sought grail.
Oh Lady, is any hope that after so many neighs you will consider Li as Royal Stallion for for life of love?
This American day of love vows approaches, and Li seeks your answer. Please Lady respond with Yes! Mr. Li
