a print for Haiti, and tennessee williams comes full circle

I listed a tattooed lady print, full proceeds of her sale will go to the American Red Cross for relief in Haiti. She can be purchased here. Her shipping is free. :)
I must see this movie!
A Tennessee Williams play that has just now been made into a film.
My mom told me about it a week or two ago, but I just watched a clip from it. The dialogue is so clearly by Williams, and it was so odd to see a modern actress (Bryce Dallas Howard) speak the lines. I love the desperation lurking behind the outwardly confident female characters in Williams' plays, and I think it's neat how that came through so clearly in the clip from this new film yet at the same time struck me as different. I could so easily picture Vivien Leigh or Elizabeth Taylor in black and white reciting the same lines.
I hope you all had a great Wednesday. I had my first hula hoop class tonight - it was so much fun! I highly recommend it as a form of workout. :)

Hey Kat!
Thanks for telling me about Solanah's blog! I'm so honored. :) My friend, an amazing hula hooper, is co-teaching the class I'm taking. You should try to find a class near you - it is so much fun. I think we all think hula hooping is hard because we grew up with the lightweight plastic hoops. Real ones are made of heavy rubber which gives you more time to keep them on your hips! I have new-hooper hip bruises which I will wear with pride. :) So much fun.
