The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,400 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Bright Colors in December

12-16-13 TemariThe long darkness of winter is here. 4:30, the light goes on and the fun begins. Making Temari in brilliant pallets is a smashing way to open the evening.  Indulging this completely addictive art form and medium has captured me from the beginning. From winding the base ball and placing the structural grid the tickle of delight begins. Placing that first color onto the surface and letting the rest pour through is a wonderful entertainment. The rhythm and pace, the centering in on pattern, each seem to be the perfect brain gym for me.
