Every single day with Mark Hahn is a blessing- full of laughter, fascinating conversations, kindness and so much LOVE. This is my largest sewn piece to date in my effort to suggest how happy I am with my beloved.
The overwhelming sounds of the commercial jet engines frame the surrealistic experience and view I have through a plane window so late at night, providing impetus for this drawing as we left the Chicago area.
This represents the last few seconds of a percussion concert at Cornell in the Johnson Museum. The 3 smaller drums sounds cycle and bump off the concrete walls and the bass drum releases its staccato sound drops. Tim Feeney provided a most stimulating aural soundscape.
“Joy Will Find A Way” by Bruce Cockburn
Make me a bed of fond memories Make me to lie down with a smile Everything that rises afterward falls But all that dies has first to live.
As longing becomes love As night turns to day Everything changes Joy will find a way

A few years ago when I underwent radiation treatments as part of my journey with cancer, I created a sound track on my iPod to support my healing. This image is the sound of a single harmonic guitar chord that I visualized as cutting a slice off my tumor and making that slice explode and disappear with the radiation treatments. In October 2013, I had the greatest pleasure to finally meet the composer/guitarist, Max Maffia in his beautiful home city of Salerno, Italy. I cherish the memory of the concert Max organized in my honor, in a Salerno art gallery with his entire band, and 50 of his dearest family and friends. I finally got to hear a live version of the song that supported my healing.
