This holiday I go back and forth on. When it's a full moon AND a weekend AND I used to live in the city it was pandamonium. Now that Mr. Dai and Baby Dai and I live in the country, we prefer the full moons during the week. It's just quieter that way. Since this holiday coincides with municipal election season, it's been busier than usual. I am teaching a class on using recycled materials to make art. My friend Marcella Stasa (marcellastasa.com) is a genius at this, although her recycled materials are all things from the forest floor.
