This is almost totally non-art related, but here goes:
I was in the West Village Friday, and decided that it was time. I had been growing my hair out for two long years and it was time for it to come off. After my friend Cheryl passed away, my friend Diane passed away, and two other girlfriends were diagnosed with cancer, I decided that this was a little thing (a very little thing) that I could do.
I am donating my hair through Beautiful Lengths. Hopefully, it will make some beautiful woman feel a little better. If you have ever considered cutting your hair (it is summer and damn hot! Do you need another reason?) Consider doing it now, and for this great cause. Here is a before and after. (I said I wanted it to look like Maggie Gyllenhaal's)
My hair is laying on my desk, looking very much like a sleeping animal or an amputated body part at the moment. It is a little disturbing, I must admit. I can't wait to send it away tomorrow. At least now it won't need tying up at the felting table.
