Sfumato

This word literally means “going up in smoke.” To the best of
my ability, I have sought to follow Da Vinci in his “willingness
to embrace ambiguity, paradox, and uncertainty…”, to
become “more at home with the unknown, to make friends
with paradox.”

Hotel in Waikoloa, Hawai`i
in 2003 during a summer
business conference.

One thought on “Sfumato”

  1. Hi Lucy,
    I was looking at some of these websites you have listed here and I would say that you have definitely embraced ambiguity. I took a closer look at the information on the Druids and hippies. I was raised in Palo Alto California. I was in my early teens when the whole hippy thing was happening all around me. I wished that I was older because I wanted some of that free love. I remember Jerry Garcia used to give guitar lessons at Dana Morgan music store right down town. I knew people mentioned in Ken Kesey’s book “Electric Kool-aide Acid Test.” I became a hippy as soon as I could and then when I was 19 I moved to Hawaii and did the back to the earth thing on a ten acre farm in Honaunau which is where my daughter was born and raised.
    Looking at your blog gets me inspired. I wish I had more time. I wonder where you find all the time to do so many things. Do you not sleep much?
    I tend to need quite a bit of sleep. Thanks for the inspiration! See you in class.

    Aloha,
    Deborah
