I was thinking that if Mrs. Leland Stanford had done nothing but build a church in memory of her child that would’ve been an incredible gift to the community.
FlashForward 150 years or what not and Aleta Hayes cocreated the Sunday worship community by having a dozen of her disciples performing a gesture chorus that covered ecumenical grounds including Judaism blessing the Torah although at first I was thinking She hacked tai chi with a banjo Aleta and her group are approaching their tenure anniversary as the chocolate heads
The troupe includes Aviva Klein Meyers, Anika Benons, and Amber Levine who deserve Straight A’s
Edit to add this is kind of a weird Segway but after going to church with Aleta so to speak it changed my world and it change the way I looked at Michal Rovner at pace Gallery in Palo Alto and Israeli artist who create images and video boards that are based on a fabric of human form. Aleta’s work was much more exquisite but Rovner or is a serious artist.. HERE Terry and I had our portraits taken at the gallery and a composite image that looks like a dog and then I shot a close-up the following week of 12 figures a detail of a different Rovnerbpiece and texted it to Aleta
Robbers show is called “evolution and continues another week
And then for payback or to reciprocate when you got up and let the audience I took the Q and reach back and grabbed her hand and suede although we are separated by the pews in different rows
Aleta’s birthday was April 26 and coincidentally I texted her that day because I received notice by email of a cd by her friend the jazz bassist William Parker.
