Jon: I’m Back. Sorry about that.

…I forgot to not be apathetic and/or have a cold.

One of my favorite blogs out there belongs to Katherine Dexter, a woman I have never met but feel a strong familiarity to. More so than any other blogger, I feel a real sense of identity and creative connectivity with her. I know that it might sound wierd, but when I first read her blog I got the comforting sense of running into a close friend I hadn’t spoken to in years. Of course, she lives in Philly (which is where I grew up….sort of) and I live in Oregon, so we will most likely never meet or be friends.

That is why I was mega/mega/ultra/super bummed when she went on a blog hiatus. It seemed like I had lost her forever! It lasted for nearly two months,  but she is (thankfully) back now, and i can continue to be inspired by her.

Hurrah.

Anyway, to commemorate her return I thought I’d share with all you Gaycondo readers a video she recently posted about Philladelphia artist Zoe Strauss. I had never heard of her before, but instantly fell head over heels for her photographs as well as her altruistic view on the connection between art and community.

    I’m working on it! I’m in grad school so things get hectic. Thank you for the words — I hope you know I feel the same. 🙂
