Celeste's piece in memory of Leigh Ann

I made a third commission of Celeste Hutchins to make a piece in memory of Leigh Ann. It's #21 in the series, and you can find it at the top of Celeste's podcast right now. I asked her to name it "Anarchy and Rapture" after one of Annwn's songs.

Check it out...and while you're at it, ask Celeste to write a piece for you, too. It's so much easier than you think, to be a patron of the arts!

Uh oh.

I've been enjoying reading Jane Stillwater's Baghdad blog, but now all of a sudden it's got a John McCain campaign ad on it. Drat. I guess I was hoping it would remain non-partisan.

Jane Stillwater

A feisty 64-year-old grandmother from Berkeley has succeeded in traveling to Iraq. Her ultimate goal: to get "embedded" as a journalist. Her quest has gotten a lot of press. It appears she is indeed in Baghdad and posting to her blog.

Her posts are so much fun, and the voice so believable, that my suspicions are aroused...I can't bring myself to believe it's real. I expect to hear any day now that it's a hoax.
