There is such an amazing talent and creativity in the world and it is great to see it any possible ways to come out. In Pasadena now until August 21st in Williamson Gallery will be an exhibit Hyperbolic: Reef, Rubbish, Reason. In Pasadena Star there is a nice review and pictures from the show. Crochet Coral Reefs keep growing - currently The Maine Reef is growing, crocheters are busy in Asheville and Honolulu.
I have some new ideas and my fingers are itching to start a new piece ,but ... my creativity has to turn back to teaching mathematics - on June 27th I will start teaching six week course Prove It! which I have not taught before and this is first time when it is offered in Cornell Summer session. My right arm is still hurting. No crochet or knitting for a while - it is hard enough to type. I am working on getting my arm to be able to write on a board - still teach old fashion way :-) I am very hopeful to avoid surgery but have to have another cortisone shot to cut inflammation so I can do more exercising it. Crocheting is not included on that list. At least I can still take pictures and learn about some amazing talents.
