Inspirational talk by Candy Chang, Leaders Breakfast, IIDA

An inspirational Talk on Wednesday morning, by the artist, Candy Chang.  Held at the Four Seasons hotel in San Francisco, by the IIDA...Multi-dimensional and social network crossover coolness captures the essence of our dreams, needs and realities.  She now lives in New Orleans (bonus points!) and speaks about the amazing uniqueness of the city and the people.  Her focus is always on the person, the soul, and how we all need to help each other and pull our society back up out of the mud...these are my notes...

The lake and the stone hut

One morning down by the rocky edge of the lake waters in Tahoma, I spied a stone hut, possibly a boat storage hut perched above the water line and out of reach from the cold lake waters...my favorite part of this drawing is the deep green darkness of the silhouette of the trees...

Lake Tahoe, Da Ow A Ga, dock and swimmers, divers and gazers...

...the completed painted view of the wood dock at the Sugar Pine Point State Park beach, Lake Tahoe...The Native American Washoe tribe inhabited the Tahoe region years and years ago and considered the area as the epicenter of their universe . The Washoe called the lake and the area "Da ow a ga", roughly translated to "edge of the lake". The first white visitors to the area heard the sounds and mispronounced this name, and called it "Tahoe". The name remained in this Anglicized form until present times.
