Cyberflanerie: Besquare, Sandell Morse in Ascent, Pond on Pond, Cloud Terrace, and an Open Letter from Patrice Wynne

Besquare, Craig Lockwood's collection of creative talks. (Sandwich-time worthy indeed!)
Here's his own intro.

"Hiding," a new essay by Sandell Morse in one of my favorite literary journals, the now on-line Ascent.

Pond on Pond by Meredith Pond
A fun and thoughtful blog by my fellow Writer's Center member and Baja Buff.

Cloud Terrace, art installation through Fall 2012 at Dumbarton Oaks
By Andy Cao and Xavier Perrot.
This fairy-like natural light show is located within the gardens in "Arbor Terrace," which was originally designed by Beatrix Ferrand (Edith Wharton's niece) in the 1930s and subsequently redesigned by Ruth Harvey in the 1950s. If you're anywhere near Washington DC this fall, be sure to check this out.

And an open letter from the fabulous Patrice Wynne, beautiful creative spirit and book angel of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico:

Dear Community, 
You are joyfully invited to my Birthday Fiesta, Store Sale, and Fundraiser at Abrazos featuring San Miguel Designs, for a 3 day celebration, Thursday, October 4th and Friday, October 5th, from 9am to 8pm, and Saturday October 6th, 9am to 12pm.  
Abrazos is located at Zacateros 24, near Pila Seca in San Miguel. We are known as the apron store of San Miguel, but our collection now includes over 35 cool creations, all made with Mexican themed fabrics by local, talented, hard working seamstresses. Come visit us! 

As many of you know, I have been seriously ill and recuperating at LifePath Center for a month. This event marks my return to Abrazos. Nothing would make me happier than to share these days with you to celebrate my birthday, to introduce you to our new designs and creations (dresses, pillow cases, covers for electronics, shoulder bags), to lure you to our new sale section (some items up to 50% off!), to have a heckofa lot of fun and to raise some income to cover my self insured medical expenses. 
There will be food and drink in abundance, birthday cake, and original gifts with purchase of 150 pesos or more. 
If you cannot attend, there are other ways to connect with Abrazos featuring San Miguel Designs : via Facebook, Pinterest, and our website. To place an order from our website, send your Wish List in the Contact section.

Please invite your friends, mil gracias. I hope to see you here, and to exchange abrazos in Abrazos, or to meet you online! To Life! 
SALUDos, Patrice
