Dali Time Happy New Year

There’s a wonderful exhibit of surrealist Salvador Dali paintings and sculptures in New York’s Time Warner Center. They’re so alluring, they’re even upstaging the huge Botero Adam and Eve sculptures that attract much photo-snapping of people grinning slyly at Adam’s eye-level penis.

I am mesmerized by Dali’s clock sculptures. They drip time, melt time, warp time. Juxtapose fast and slow passage of time, or rather tease us for thinking such mundane distinctions exist. Apparently Dali agreed with Albert Einstein that time exists only so that everything doesn’t happen at once.

Are You a Virgin?

With the New Year about to begin, I thought you’d enjoy seeing this video trailer by Therese Shechter, called “How to lose Your Virginity.”

You know, like Madonna sings, we’re all new again in the New Year–“like a virgin for the very first time.”

Virginity is a social construct that has been use to disempower women through the ages. I can’t wait till Therese gets the film finished and encourage you to help her do so. Check out her blog and while you’re there take the quiz to see how honest you are about sex. if you really want to know that is :-)

Best wishes for the Brave New Year

New is good. What did you do new last year? I left a 30-year career of social movement leadership to become a solo practitioner writing and speaking about my passions. I got my ears pierced so I can wear those beautiful dangly earrings.
