The last swim of the year is reserved for dogs. Before the manager of the neighborhood pool drains the summer's water away, all the local pooches get a chance to swim as the humans crowd the sides. It's a beloved tradition and total bedlam.

My Life in Candy is a new series I'm working on that touches on personal struggles with food and appearance, but also makes reference to the role of commercialization and memory. I've always been fascinated by personalized trinkets. As I continue to work on this series, I hope to refine my thoughts more. Three pictures from this series are on display, along with about 30 more prints from different bodies of work at Atlanta's Spruill Gallery. The exhibit will be on display until the end of October.

I hope everyone will join me Thursday night for the opening of my solo show, Subject Matters, at the Spruill Gallery. I will be giving an artist talk during the opening at 7:30. This exhibition is an exciting departure for me and includes an installation of around 3,000 to-do lists I collected from friends and strangers. The installation is a physical manifestation of all the tasks people perform on a daily basis and asks the viewer to address how he or she is spending their time. To Do is also about the tension between doing the errands that must be done and finding time to do what is truly meaningful to the viewer as an individual.

Now I know there is a warm place waiting for anyone in America who wants to find a group. I say this with a total lack of condescension or irony - I only wish I liked science fiction - what a friendly group of carbon and non-carbon life forms. This parade reinforced for me, my total and complete averageness on the strange scale - maybe the middle is the loneliest place to be.
