at home in the world Welcome to my chronicle. I have embarked on my 'global art studio tour' (GAST). Who knows how long i'll be gone or where exactly it will take me. I hope to meet as many artists, see as many studios, and make as much art work as possible before my return. If you wish to sponsor me, you will receive a peice of artwork, of your choice, after my return at the value of which you sponsor me. (does that make sense?) Put another way, you can pre-purchase artwork from me, if you would like. The two ways to get money to me are (1)Send it to my parents who will deposit it: c/o Ron & Janine Parrish, 9102 Towanna Tr., Austin, TX 78736, USA. OR (2) email me (via this website) for Paypal information. (my account is under my email address, if you already have that.) Thanks so much. Please comment as freely and frequently as you wish on articles and picture. ~heather

Brno? and, Normal?

CZECH REPUBLIC | Monday, 23 Jul 2007 | Views [591]

One thing I have been thoroughly schooled on during my time in the Czech Republic is the myriad differences between Bohemia and Moravia (basically east and west CR) - not the least of which is the primary beverage produced: Bohemia = Beer (home of ... Read more >

Czech sounds

CZECH REPUBLIC | Thursday, 12 Jul 2007 | Views [510]

Angie, Josie and I, plus Joanne from San Fransisco who we picked up in Prague, took a little road trip to Southern Bohemia to a little town called Cesky Krumlov - a must-see according to so many fellow hostellers. (And it was). The whole thing just ... Read more >

Prague-more stories

CZECH REPUBLIC | Thursday, 12 Jul 2007 | Views [482]

There is a legend here about a creature called Golem. On the north side of the old town is a large Jewish quarter (where our dear Franz Kafka was born and died). Golem is essentially a Jewish Frankenstein - made by a Rabbi, not a scientist. Some say ... Read more >

Prague - the stories are true

CZECH REPUBLIC | Sunday, 1 Jul 2007 | Views [558]

Despite first impressions from my ghetto-stylin' hostel, what everyone says about Prague is true: it is beautiful! I've had 5 days here on my own. (I'm still always a little surprised by how much I enjoy being on my own.) Taking it slow since Angie and ... Read more >

Gnaoua, baby!

MOROCCO | Saturday, 30 Jun 2007 | Views [974] | Comments [1]

In the amazing coastal town of Essouaira (it takes a good few weeks to learn how to pronounce it right, which can be a problem when trying to find a bus that goes there), we discovered, among many other things, the deep love that Moroccans have for music.... Read more >

This is just to let you know I'm in Morocco now. I flew in to Marrakech where a friend of Jonathan & Leslie's picked me up. Bruce, as it turns out, is from Austin and we have many friends in common - had to come to Morocco though to finally cross ... Read more >

Unexpected sweetness

SPAIN | Wednesday, 20 Jun 2007 | Views [677]

(Again, my apologies for not keeping up with my stories. Things won't necessarily be in order, but at least here's a little somethings.) So, after Egypt, on June 1, I headed to meet my good friend Angie in Granada. Had no idea what I was in for. In ... Read more >

my first rollercoaster

EGYPT | Friday, 8 Jun 2007 | Views [766]

This is the feeling I had as we careened through the streets of Cairo. The driving style there is similar to Indo, but they don´t even bother putting lines on the highways since they know noone follows them (which i thought was quite efficient). There ... Read more >

Yesterday I found the most beautiful park I've been in. I've always considered Singapore to be clean, uptight (you know, chewing gum in banned), and a bit sterile. My experience this time around however has changed my mind! During my quite extensive ... Read more >

Variations on 'Well Fed'

SINGAPORE | Tuesday, 22 May 2007 | Views [532]

I hatched the concept for this article on Sunday night, after my first full day in Singapore. I had just returned from the National Gallery (conveniently in walking distance). I was more than 'well fed' in the consuming incredible art all day sense.... Read more >
