The Lockdown Diaries: Week 10

by Janice Nigro Entering double digits for weeks in lockdown in California. I think we’re beginning to come out of it.

A funny thing happened at Water & Wood I

A funny thing happened at Water & Wood I by Janice Nigro Fate was at work already within minutes of my arrival at the opening. A woman standing next to me last Saturday night said, “I couldn’t be further from being an artist.” “What makes you say that?” I asked. “I am a scientist,” she answered. I smiled....
