a mug shot collaboration…

This morning my coffee-fueled internet meanderings landed me a famous mugshots site. They’re quite remarkable, raw, and they all seem to just dare you to learn more about the arrests. I’m a true crime junkie.

David Bowie was arrested in Rochester, NY for marijuana possession on March 21st, 1976. He was held for three hours and released on bail. He pleaded guilty and the grand jury later decided to pass on his case. Even his mugshot is classy, of course.

With some regret, I’ve never been arrested. So, with the help of my daughter, Willa Govoni’s photography and highly intuitive stylist skills I now have my very own menopausal mugshots. Perhaps a protest arrest is in my future? #2021goals #resist #goodtrouble

I thought about my characteristics that feel like crimes sometimes. They came to mind quite quickly…judgment, regret, and procrastination.

Willa, you’ve got a good eye kid. Let’s do lunch and discuss more projects.

Thank you.

A few of the pieces that I couldn’t stop viewing.

Liz is the niece of a friend. Ellen sent me the link to Liz’s site yesterday and I thought about how utterly remarkable our connectivity is with the world-wide web. When I thought about how I became the recipient of this link, I had to pause a little and think about the path it traveled.

1. Life’s great stories are about taking action when you meet someone you connect with and seeing what happens.
2. I never would have seen the site if I hadn’t pursued Ellen and continued a dialogue after we met.
3. Liz seems like a remarkably interesting, grounded and purposeful artist. Inspiring.
4. WOW, this work is staggeringly lovely and complex and more people should see it and I want to share the link.

Today I am going to think about the pathways that information travels TO and FROM me. Here’s to connectivity both real and virtual!
