My Retirement at Ury So Far
2021 - 2024

2024.05.01


After an over-a-month hiatus, resumed transcribing my The Discovery of Piranesi's Final Project notes, which, if all proceeds as hoped for, will eventually join the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Archive. The notes comprise 165 loose leaf pages, of which 36 pages are transcribed so far.



Started, finished and framed the first of hopefully many more "quickie" paintings.

In the evening, I attended the monthly meeting of the Northeast Philadelphia History Network featuring a talk on "Tacony’s Keystone Scientific & Literary Association" by Suzin Weber at Pennepack Baptist Church (rebuilt 1805). The talk was interesting and informative, followed by a lively Q&A. Afterwards, upstairs in the balconies, Tony and I and another gentleman whose name I cannot remember, discussed Albania. Who knew?

The last five hours of my brother's life were spent within Jefferson Torresdale's Emergency Trauma Center. San Michel was the early-life summer home of Katharine Drexel. "In 1891, Katharine founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, a religious order dedicated to serving the African American and Native American communities; Katharine and the new Sisters move into the Drexel's former summer home in Torresdale and begin the new Order [and remain there till 1892]." Katharine Drexel was canonized as a Roman Catholic saint October 2000. 16 May 2023: "It was about 9:30 at night when I told my brother that I recently found out that the convent where he was born--Klosterberg, Hohenwart, Bavaria--goes back to the year 1074."

The Star Vengeance exhibition at GES-2 House of Culture, Moscow, ended 21 January 2024. As far as I'm concerned, the only real consequence of The Timepiece of Humanity having been part of the Star Vengeance exhibition is the Art that can be construed as supporting LGBTQ+ rights exhibition presently at museumpeace.com 19 October 2023 to 18 October 2024.
