This Kiva loan is in honor of my mother's birthday:
"Grigor lives with his nice family in Dilijan city, which is in the Tavush region. Grigor says that he greatly enjoyed his two previous deals with Kiva and hopes for the third one. He hopes that Kiva lenders will be so kind again to support him in his request with the loan amount.
Grigor works at the computer office, and there he repairs computers and printing machines. His wife also works there as a manager. Grigor has two pretty daughters; the elder already graduated from a state university, and she works at the insurance company. The smallest daughter is still a student at the Yerevan State University, at the faculty of Romano and Germanic languages. She studies at the paid division and Grigor would like to solve the problem of tuition fee repayment again with the help of Kiva lenders.
This loan of 450,000 Armenian drams he seeks as he must pay his smallest daughter’s tuition fee."

Pat took this picture last year. I was buying gerbera daisies almost every week and they looked so lovely in the little yellow vase from my friend Susan with my beautiful Vietri plate in the background.
I took these pictures at Rice yesterday. I walk by the Turrell Skyspace every morning on my way to work. Yesterday afternoon I discovered this very cool dragon. Not sure why he suddenly appeared by Valhalla.

A Day at the MOMA

I have always wanted to go to the MOMA in NY and finally got a chance in December. Like the Met, a week is needed to see everything but I did manage to see a lot including the exhibit Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs. No pictures were allowed but here are a few pictures from the permanent collection

Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs

Here is a video from CBS Sunday Morning on the exhibit I saw at the MOMA:
