Hey gang. Hope this blog post finds you well. I’ve had a busy week with Easter/church events, family stuff, fixing an email server problem, and modeling of course. My Friday gig has been cancelled, which isn’t such a bad thing since I can use the day off to finally get my car inspected! And maybe get to a much-needed yoga class. My muscles would appreciate it.
I spent a lot of time today on Twitter in solidarity with my fellow Armenians around the world, commemorating 99 years since the start of the Armenian Genocide, an atrocity of ethnic cleansing which took place under the Ottoman Empire. I’d write more on this critically important event but I’m pretty burned out from tweeting about it, as it is a harrowing topic, deeply personal to many of us. Instead, I’ll post a work of art by an Armenian artist, an unusual watercolor by Martiros Saryan titled Fairy Tale, At the Foot of Mount Ararat:
I’ll also direct you to an old Museworthy post about Arshile Gorky that might be of interest. As for me, I need a couple of hours of feet-up relaxation with a glass of wine and TV. Catch you all very soon 🙂
