Aegean lace wool

Winter is finally setting in on the farm and the sheep are dressed for the weather. We are busy dyeing new colors and working on a new website. Aegean is available now in Lace and SB in the yarn store.

28 August 1943-29 May 2018 

We are mourning the sudden loss of our beloved friend, mentor, and champion of the sheep. Each day without him reminds us of how much we loved and miss him. 

 This Summer has been a challenge like no other but our goal is to continue to carry on Eugene's legacy and care for his sheep. He was proud of them and their superfine Saxon merino wool...and so are we. The sheep are a constant reminder of what a special man he was and still is in our lives.

 Please bear with us as we work towards continuing his dream of selling more yarn and spreading the word about these sheep.

 We are still at Union Square and Grand Army Plaza Greenmarkets on Saturdays and the website is still open.

Dominique leads from the upper barn the 2nd lambing group (later born) down to the lower pasture; the sheep number about 80 ewes and 120 lambs.

'20th Century Women' (2016) written and directed by Mike Mills.

In 1979 Santa Barbara, Dorothea Fields (Annette Bening) is a single mother in her mid-50s who is raising her adolescent son, Jamie. Dorothea enlists the help of two younger women—Abbie, a punk artist living as a boarder in the Fields' home and Julie, a savvy and provocative teenage neighbor—to help with Jamie's upbringing.

I like whatever character Annette Bening plays—she is 'big' in my eyes—along with other cineastes. She plays 'small' parts of her character.

Edvard Munch (1906)

A 1906 portrait of Friedrich Nietzsche by Edvard Munch. Nietzsche died in 1900.

Notice the blue 'wings' behind him.

Kristin Stewart

Personal Shopper (2017) directed by Olivier Assayas and starring Kristin Stewart.

In Paris, Maureen (Kristin Stewart) works as a personal shopper for a celebrity. But does she have the ability to speak with spirits like her recently deceased twin brother?

Is the pairing odd, the business of personal shopping and speaking to the deceased? I see no relation between them. She could have been a juggler or a bartender or spoken to sheep.

I've admired Kirsten Stewart since The Clouds of Sils Maria (2014, also directed by Olivier Assayas) In that film: "A veteran actress (Juliette Binoche) comes face-to-face with an uncomfortable reflection of herself when she agrees to take part in a revival of the play that launched her career 20 years earlier" but not as the star—as the older, supporting actress. In The Clouds of Sils Maria Kirsten Stewart plays the actress's personal assistant. Ms. Stewart was awarded the César (the French Oscar) for Best Supporting Actress for her performance.

If you are not convinced that she communicates with the dead as scripted here. Perhaps the fault is in the authors of the screenplay: both the star and the director 'wrote' Personal Shopper.

But she is a fine actor. Pay attention to the personal-shopper business not to the medium business. I recommend Personal Shopper albeit its spookiness.
