“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”—Henry David Thoreau, “Walden” (Sandía Mountains photo by FB fan Resul Ceviz.)

Today’s Holiday:Gold Star Mother’s Day


Today’s Holiday:
Gold Star Mother’s Day

Since 1936, the last Sunday in September has been designated by the U.S. Congress as Gold Star Mother’s Day in the United States, honoring the mothers of US service men and women who have died at war. The Gold Star mothers’ group was founded in the aftermath of World War I by Grace Darling Siebold, whose son George had been killed in an air battle over France in 1918. Each year, Gold Star Mother’s Day is commemorated during several ceremonies in the nation’s capital, including flower and wreath laying services at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Today’s Birthday:Mark Rothko (1903)


Today’s Birthday:
Mark Rothko (1903)

Largely self-taught, Rothko was an American painter who became a leading exponent of a uniquely personal strain within the larger movement of abstract expressionism. By 1950, he was creating his so-called color-field paintings, works with large rectangles of color that express moods. In 1970, he committed suicide shortly after completing what some regard as his masterwork, a group of murals for a chapel in Houston, Texas. For what record-breaking price did one of Rothko’s paintings sell in 2007?: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Quote of the Day:
Agatha Christie

I’ve always believed in writing without a collaborator, because where two people are writing the same book, each believes he gets all the worry and only half the royalties.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Article of the Day:Fluxus


Article of the Day:
Fluxus

Fluxus, “to flow” in Latin, is an international group of artists noted for blending various artistic media and disciplines in the 1960s. Considered an attitude rather than a movement or style, Fluxus encourages a do-it-yourself aesthetic and values simplicity. Fluxus developed out of many of the concepts explored by composer John Cage, who focused on the notion of chance in art through works such as 4’33″—a “composition” performed without a single note being played.
