This is the thank-you note to our hosts (Thanks T and J and A and A).



I found out last weekend that I've been awarded a Professional Fellowship from the Virginia Museum in Richmond. I'm happy! I'll post all the other recipients once they publicize them.


Woodland art creatures and hidden tunez

DC artist Truly Herbert has spent the past weeks at the Penland School in North Carolina and sent me this lovely thing she made while in the woods. Here's another:


Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland has some hidden tunez:
Rosslyn Chapel holds a musical mystery in its architecture and design. At one end of the chapel, on the ceiling are 4 cross-sections of arches containing elaborate symbolic designs on each array of cubes (in actual fact they are rectangles mostly). The 'cubes' are attached to the arches in a musically sequential way. And to confirm this, at the ends of each arch there is an angel playing a musical instrument of a different kind. After 27 years of study and research by Stuart's father Thomas.J.Mitchell, we believe he has found the pitches and tonality that match the symbols on each cube, revealing its melodic and harmonic progressions.
