While awaiting for Alice to come on our French screens, Labistrake has asked us to create something in honnor of the
mad tea party....


Not knowing if I'll be able to make something in time, my creative muse having gone on vacation, I've started rereading Lewis Carroll, and thinking about this song

Here then is my non-creation...

So, turn down the lights, do not abuse of your hookah, and let yourself go to the enchanting voice of
Grace Slick




One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small

When men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving slow
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said;
"Feed YOUR HEAD
Feed your head"




ps: we don't really know what those last lyrics say, Feed Your Head, Keep Your Head, Leave Your Head.... for the moment, I'll go for Leave... but hey, sing what you want!!!!!

Ode to my city...

First there was Frank,
  Now, there's JZ


I'm not a rap fan, and the first time I saw this video, I turned off the sound to enjoy the pictures


I saw them the other day on French TV and my heart beat fast, chills were running down my spine, what great lyrics!


I wanna go!!!





Jay-Z
Yeah, yeah, Imma up at Brooklyn,
Now I’m down in Tribeca, right next to DeNiro,
But i’ll be hood forever, I’m the new Sinatra,
and since i made it here, i can make it anywhere,
yeah they love me everywhere, i used to cop in Harlem,
all of my dominicanos right there up on broadway,
brought me back to that McDonalds, took it to my stash spot,
Five Sixty Stage street, catch me in the kitchen
like a simmons whipping pastry,
cruising down 8th street, off white lexus,
driving so slow but BK is from Texas
me I’m up at Bedsty, home of that boy Biggie,
now i live on billboard, and i brought my boys with me,
say wat up to Ty Ty, still sipping Malta
sitting courtside Knicks and Nets give me high fives,
N-gga i be spiked out, i can trip a referee,
tell by my attitude that I most definitely from

Chorus : Alicia Keys
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
The lights will inspire you
lets here it for New York, New York, New York

Jay-Z
I made you hot n@#gga,
Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game,
sh-t i made the yankee hat more famous than a yankee can,
you should know I bleed Blue, but I ain’t a crip tho,
but i got a gang of n@#ggas walking with my click though,
welcome to the melting pot, corners where we selling rocks,
afrika bambaataa sh!t, home of the hip hop,
yellow cap, gypsy cap, dollar cab, holla back,
for foreigners it ain’t fitted they forgot how to act,
8 million stories out there and their naked,
cities is a pity half of y’all won’t make it,
me i gotta plug a special and i got it made,
If Jesus payin LeBron, I’m paying Dwayne Wade,
3 dice cee-lo, 3 card marley,
labor day parade, rest in peace Bob Marley,
Statue of Liberty, long live the World trade
long live the king yo, I’m from the empire state thats

Chorus : Alicia Keys
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
The lights will inspire you
lets here it for New York, New York, New York

Jay-Z
Lights is blinding, girls need blinders
so they can step out of bounds quick,
the side lines is blind with casualties,
who sipping life casually, then gradually become worse,
don’t bite the apple Eve, caught up in the in crowd,
now your in-style, and in the winter gets cold en vogue with your skin out,
the city of sin is a pity on a whim, good girls gone bad
the cities filled with them,
Mommy took a bus trip and now she got her bust out,
everybody ride her, just like a bus route,
Hail Mary to the city your a Virgin,
and Jesus can’t save you life starts when the church ends,
came here for school, graduated to the high life,
ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight,
M.D.M.A got you feeling like a champion,
the city never sleeps better slip you a Ambien

Chorus : Alicia Keys
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There’s nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York,
these streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
lets here it for New York, New York, New York

Alicia Keys
One hand in the air for the big city,
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty,
no place in the World that can compare,
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeah yeaaah
come on, come, yeah,

Chorus : Alicia Keys
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There’s nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York,
these streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
lets here it for New York, New York, New York

Pix taken from the house, because I can't get out, I hurt my knee before all this snow.... the car is stuck in the garage....

By the time it  has taken me to take these pictures and upload them, the snow is still falling a little, and the snow is peeking a bit through. The colors are magnificent but my little camera isn't catching it from my perch.....

Tracks in the snow made by the cat who had a ball this morning, but is now sleeping comfortably on the bed nice and warm, thank you......

It's been a while since I've written here.... not much to say I guess...

I've been keeping busy, don't worry, mainly knitting in the evenings... and with my new translation activity + my part-time job - it's still work, and everyday stuff, my little blog has been put aside a little bit.... sorry!!!!

One good thing though, well more like 3, I blew another candle yesterday, and to celebrate the event accordingly, I offered myself 3 workshops with Dijanne Ceeval,  2 last week, and one on Friday...

Thursday was linocut impression, Friday was textile creation from a photo as a starting point, and next Friday will be her famous free-motion stitching....

J'ai aussi servi d'interprète pour aider Dijanne qui arrive à parler un peu le français mais qui a un peu de mal quand même.... Elle comprend mieux qu'elle ne parle....

I also acted as interpreter to help Dijanne who can speak a little French but still has a little trouble with it.... She understands better than she can speak, so says she!!!

A few photos???

some linocuts made by Dijanne and some of us students


What we'll try to do next Friday.........



Soon I'll show you some knitting pix.......
