Iguana Skin



Rachel was jealous that I was in Florida so she announced today that she and Frances are leaving on Thursday for four days at DisneyWorld in Orlando. They've been there a few times and like it very much. One more week of spring break; our hallway is empty, quiet and devoid of activity. And it's cold here. I wanna go back to Florida!!

Rob called and reminded me of the miniatures exhibit at the Guilford Art Center, so I dropped in to take a look. Nothing could be more than 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches, altho it looked like a few cheated a bit. My favorite was a small house/temple created out of shed iguana skin. It was exquisitely executed.

Then I went to the Guilford Green for an anti-war rally. There were about a hundred people there, which was more than I expected. Mostly it was an older group, leftovers from the lefty anti-Vietnam war era. I was glad I went, and hope that similar gatherings in other cities today further cemented the nation's disgust with the killing in Iraq.
