Happy 2013 from Berlin...yes, still here and loving it. And hello from my desk to yours....I'm happily cozy and producative at Casa Schröderstraße in order to focus and gear up for a busy winter of writing and organizing. I've actually never used this Photo Booth app ...but here it is...not too much distortion. Anyway, evidence nonetheless that I am indeed, im meine haus. And I have to digress a bit -- my German is getting much much better...jeden tag I just keep fumbling my way through it....fearlessly!

SO, I'm starting the my second term as a Visiting Artist and Curator at Takt today -- moderating/leading the weekly critique sessions. I'm looking forward to getting into the thick of things again. We all met last week and I'm excited to work with this new group of artists. England, Austrailia, New Zealand, Canada and Italy are represented this time around and always such a diversity of work. I'm also thrilled to be working with Heather from the D.C. area who is helping run things at Takt as of this January. AND she'll also be volunteering at The Studio Visit. 

Berlin is cold and grey, but still invigorating. At least that's what I keep telling myself! More later....
