Watching the Caterpillar

The Hungry Caterpillar

from the Eric Carle museum of picture-book art

Thanks to a post from the Prince of Petworth I now know one thing I’ll be doing this week: checking out an exhibit of art from Eric Carle, the man who brought us  The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It packs up on September 1 so this is the last few days before it’s gone.

I’ll confess I’d be more excited about Richard Scary but we can’t always have our favorites, can we now?

Show’s at the Stanford in Washington Gallery over by the zoo. WaPo has the details and hours.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
