The tag sale, after all of the weeks of sorting, sighing and sobbing,
was kind of bittersweet.
Just days ago, we were living amongst nanny's old jewels,
my folks' prized furniture and my dad's old-time seltzer bottles and tools;
the grill, the backyard furniture, the lace table cloths.
Though we had made our peace with having to part with most of it, it was a day of revisiting the years that we spent growing up in this house.
My drawings are few- after a little while, I had to leave.

The inevitable day, sad day, of moving out of the house that I grew up in has arrived.
After weeks of sifting through the years of living, we moved my mom to a fab new apartment.
Where would I begin to record what memories I wanted?
Photos would not do it justice, and so, on the morning of the move, I traveled about, drawing here and there, snippets of what, at that particular moment, seemed significant to me.
Here they are. More TK as I move through the tag sale later today.

I went to the Tribeca Film festival last night. The film was A Powerful Noise- A documentary about the lives of three women who worked to make the lives of other women better. Though we didn't wait on line for too long, it was a little bit of a scene.
At the end of the movie, I thought that it would have been more fun to hang outside and draw the crowd for the next film...
