Countdown to Apollo 11 50th Anniversary – 4 life lessons from Aliana

1. Be curious – Aliana wanted to know why the light from the full moon was so bright, so she read about the phases of the moon.

2. Be creative – Aliana experimented with light and reflection, using shiny objects in her house to create a surprise for her brother.

3. Be patient – Aliana has to wait for the moon to be full, Gustavo has to wait for his birthday, and their parents are patient while Aliana makes messes in her work to make the perfect birthday sit.

4. Be Observant – Aliana notices things and teaches Gustavo how to notice them too.

Volunteer Appreciation Week

In honor of Volunteer Appreciation Week, I was able to be part of a project at the Boulder Public Library’s MakerSpace. If you follow this blog, you saw a post recently featuring some of the incredibly creative artwork that has been made there.

On Monday, a group of 20 volunteers from around the city of Boulder were able to create a laser cut Field Book. Most of the others spend their time volunteering in the parks, open space, or trails and their designs reflected those interests. I am a tutor at the library and a writer, so my design honors my love of books and my debut, ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON, which is now available at the library! If you are a patron of your local library, you can request that it be at your library too and I will be forever grateful.

Denver Art Museum part two

A few of my favorites from a recent visit to the museum. The first picture was from an animated work. The second is “O’Keefe after Whistler” by David P Bradley and brings two different artists together in a fascinating way.

Several others are from the “Animals in Art” exhibit which is dedicated to our never-ending attraction to and the need to connect animals .
