Could dinner parties bring hearts and minds together? This Muslim woman is giving it a try. | Public Radio International

LABSN Editor’s Note: “All we need is love.” –John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

 

Amanda Saab was the first Muslim woman in hijab to appear on a reality TV cooking show in the US. Now, she is inviting total strangers to her home and cooking them meals. She says it’s one way that might help bring together people from different sides of the political spectrum.

Why I Choose To Live Naked. | elephant journal

LABSN Editor’s Note: I like how Mr. Mathis Kennington relates that being physically naked can bring out our emotional nakedness, which is a good thing.

I’m worried you’ll see where I stepped off my path and picked up that scar that serves as a constant reminder that I am a traveler and not the destination.

Esther and Steve photoshoot no.1

Beautiful photos. Your poses together are so natural. As a figure model myself, I know it so rare for two models to pose on the same stand, so you are providing a truly exceptional experience for artists. Thank you for sharing.

Happy New Year! Esther and I stood among the crowds gathered at Hilly Fields Park in Brockley, clutching glasses of wine and watching wave after wave of fireworks surge in arcs from the distant London Eye. It was a simple start to what we hoped would be an extraordinary 12 months of modelling and performance. The next day we began our preparations…

Over the last three months of 2015 we had acquired a taste for life modelling together; we shared poses twice for Art Macabre, in Oxford and Birmingham, once for Mall Galleries, and twice for Esther’s own Spirited Bodies events – at Bargehouse and Tanner Street.

LSBSN Editor’s Note2: I don’t think I posted this, although it’s from about 6 months ago. Oh, well, I think it’s still relevant.

Nelli’s Last Supper inspires questions | The Florentine

LABSN Editor’s Note: In honor of National Women’s Month I’m posting this very interesting piece about a 14th century woman artist. Women artists in general do not receive the accolades they deserve, and early women artists are all but unknown outside of the art academia community. I hope you enjoy this article, and notice at the end there is a link to a crowd-funding effort to restore this masterpiece. If you can, help out.
