Note: I am indebted here to the article in The New Yorker about Anish Kapoor, born in 1954 and part Iraqi jew, lived briefly in Israel. I saw a piece of his work last week at the SFMoMA with my friend Eric Cohen, himself a UCLA MFA who worked with Frank Lobdell (at Stanford), Paul McCarthy and Chris Burden. Someone punched a whole in the window of my Lexus — it’s Achilles heel, evidently – -and stole my backpack, but then a nice young person at Patagonia here on Alma gifted me a replacement, with what I call “lavender” straps but a gal named Sierra says they are “violet”. Or as Sammy Hagar once said, red, red, there’s no substitute for red.
Edit to add and excuse the segue but I’m happy for Delbert Anderson of the Navajo nation are bringing his van to Sonoma State in September. I’ve brought one or more secret pop-up shows to listen Plaza and for better for worse there are things that I have deleted from my blog and my event Brite to reschedule and not just because of the pandemic. “Earthwise” at its worst can mean only human.
