snow piece

i am home from nebraska and have been greeted by chicago's first real snowfall. the sudden temperature drop is a shock to my system, although it's pretty nice that winter has held off until now. no snow until december? that was sweet. now if we can be all done with snow by april, that would be fab.

in honor of the day, here is a really lovely instructional performance piece by Yoko Ono:

SNOW PIECE (1963)

Think that snow is falling. Think that snow is falling everywhere all the time. When you talk with a person, think that snow is falling between you and on the person. Stop conversing when you think the person is covered by snow.

Wow. love this images. How else can you stop snow in mid air in order to capture it. Beautiful.
I agree, Yoko is special for sure, can't help but love her. We went to a show of her at MOMA a long time ago, she got a very unique point of view.
