You must be able to create in the middle of things or else you will not create.
Called the gas company 15 minutes ago, and they just drove up in a huge tanker. Hallelujah! I'm making eggs for breakfast even though its a bit late! This really made me aware that I do most of my cooking on top of the stove...other than baked goods which I try to not do. Tonight is stir-fry, the vegetables and tofu are already cut and have been waiting since Friday. Might need some scallion pancakes too. Oh, happy day- I'm headed out to thank the driver.
I finished writing out the Open Studio invitations last night, have to go forage for some stamps and get them mailed before I change my mind! I spent the day in the studio hiding things, moving around the wall shelves and feeling embarrassed that I don't have more to show. Of course in the midst of all this I started messing with a few things, ripped up parts of the Leadville Twins and have several days of work on that to make it ready for prime time. Also ripped up some of the encaustic work that was bothering me, need to get all that equipment out and fix a few of that series. Nothing like a deadline to make a mess, eh? I'm headed back now to see what else I can suddenly decide to modify. This is the point I should just go on an extended cruise and forget about it.

In the Modified Genetics Department:
When fast-aging elderly mice with a usual lifespan of 21 days were injected with stem cells from younger mice at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Pittsburgh, the results were staggering. Given the injection approximately four days before they were expected to die, not only did the elderly mice live — they lived threefold their normal lifespan, sticking around for 71 days. In human terms, that would be the equivalent of an 80-year-old living to be 200.
At the University of Wyoming, scientists modified a group of silkworms to produce silk that is, weight for weight, stronger than steel. Different groups hope to benefit from the super-strength silk, including stronger sutures for the medical community, a biodegradable alternative to plastics, and even lightweight armor for military purposes.
Which takes me right over to a Louise Bourgeois picture of her with a bunch of spiders!

Following up NO TIME TO EXPLAIN, I can Explain:
So, did you like the mouse above? Want another one? This one looks like he's stuck in mouse childhood forever. Oh. Wait! That ain't no mouse, it's a rat squeezing the stuffings out of a teddy bear. Rats live forever anyway, they don't need any genetic modifications.
