Emotions through an Electron Microscope

As I document and post my year long project, 365 Handmade Books, I want to take a moment to thank the wonderful female scientists in Germany who inspired and encouraged my endeavors.

When I first told them what I had in mind, they said, "You are going to work 12 hours a day on weekends too?  For a year?  Each book is going to be different?  How many pages?"

Constructed in 1969, it has a revolving cylinder with the world's 24 time zones.
When I told them about the images and stories I've been carrying around for so many years, they responded,  "Okay, what can we do to help?"

My first question to them was "May I follow you around and see how scientists conduct experiments? I want to approach my project like a scientist.   I want to see emotions through an electron microscope . . . "

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
