I got to spend some time Thursday with that great art lady, Lee Moore, as she worked with students at the Moore Square Museum Magnet middle school. The students learn about the history of the area around their downtown school and then create art and documentation, which is displayed in local storefronts. This day they were preparing collage images for tiles, some of which will be used in an outdoor installation. I will be folllowing this admirable project ( http://www.cam.ncsu.edu/programs-educational-moore.html ) and hopefully posting at RDUwtf about Lee and her myriad inputs into Raleigh culture.
This is the personal weblog of John Dancy-Jones, papermaker, publisher, educator, naturalist and writer. (Not to mention husband of 29 years, father of 2, Raleigh native…) My personal take on arts, culture, and the life of the mind. For more formal writing, see JDJ links on the sidebar.
William BlakeAlways be ready to speak your mind, and a base man will avoid you.
Albert EnsteinIt's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.
George Eliot’s MiddlemarchIf we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence.
Howard ThurmanDon't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Carl Sagan (1934 – 1996)All of the books in the world contain no more information than is broadcast as video in a single large American city in a single year. Not all bits have equal value.
Benito MussoliniFascism should be more properly called corporatism, since it is the merger of state and corporate power.
