Face shape

As you can tell from some of my other creations, I love triangles! So, when I started looking at marginalia art from medieval illuminated texts for the Salon Postisme(more on that soon), you can imagine how tickled I was to find this cutie:

a new site, Transforming Health

I’ve started a new blog about health care, Transforming Health.  There I plan to post news regarding health care, especially for the underserved, in Boulder, Colorado, and the nation.  This is a part of my self-initiated research project to learn more about what is offered and where there are gaps.  I will describe some of the current services offered and some innovations that might be beneficial to our community.

Please visit the site and refer it anyone you think might find it of interest.  Thank you!

raising awareness

gravatar-3cmx3cm-v5I recently launched a new resource called 2dollardifference to raise awareness about hunger and poverty. encourages people to experience in a meaningful, albeit partial, way the situation of half of the population of the world: eating for $2 a day.

“Simple but not easy,” participants eat for $2 a day for one week, then give the difference between their reduced food costs and what they usually spend on food (i.e., groceries, coffees, snacks, meals at restaurants) to an organization dedicated to the eradication of hunger.

A host of materials at support the experience-reflect-act process, including a list of relevant books, a special prayer, a sheet of intentions, costs of single servings of various foods, food diary, etc. The site also offers the “chat post” where folks who eat for $2 a day can share online their experiences and reflections. A few organizations that focus on the alleviation of hunger and poverty are listed as possible targets for donations, but participants can donate to any organization they choose.

2dollardifference is designed for individuals or groups and can be done anytime. To learn more, please visit the web site at
