    Hi, Jennifer,
    Would you tell me the source of the Oppenheimer photo you use on your blog? The link is: https://literatiworld.files.wordpress.com/2008/09/oppenheimer.jpg
    Thank you!

    My source was http://www.ceptualinstitute.com/genre/oppenheimer.htm; however, if you’re looking for more verifiable photos, the Caltech Institute and the Emilio Segre Visual Archives also have strong collections of Oppenheimer photos.

    Hope this helps!

    Dear Jennifer

    Oddly, After sitting down to look at a baffling sculpture I made today Tragic Beauty came into my head, really without precedent until
    I searched it. My pursuit in art is a beauty quest but always with deep searching. My mantra (from Annie Dillard) is that “beauty is the language to which we have no key”. The piece today might be
    vulgar but then so can be nature. Maybe we can talk further. FYI, I have an exhibition at Gallery/Art Placement right now. I think ‘the
    Reliquaries’ might be of interest to you. Funny also, to see Robert
    Frost on your reading list – the two linear works in the exhibition
    are drawn from a series in which i have tried to echo something I
    find consistent in his writing. ‘Stopping by Woods’ is the poem for
    me: repeating “and miles to go before I sleep” is staggeringly beautiful.
