Sundowner

剛調好一杯Sundowner 輕調酒,準備敬自己努力的一天。抬頭一看,火焰紅的天空美極了。火燒雲的天空,就是那一瞬間,5分鐘。
Time for a sundowner. Amaretto Sour is perfect for this amazing sunset. 

Kuo Yen Fu, the artist

參加台東美術館十週年晚會,這位先生找座位來到我們這一桌,他說在台東美術館駐村,我以為是位原住民藝術家!

週一在我家,他在大陽台面對太平洋畫畫,我在旁邊daybed吹著太平洋的風做自己的事。好美好自在。我們彼此都記下那畫面。

郭彥甫這週開始在台東美術館駐村三週,現場會準備大畫布及大量的顏料,邀請公眾一起來上色,共創一幅「台東人畫的」作品。

台東的朋友,或是中秋連假去台東渡假的朋友,別錯過這個參與創作的機會。

牛皮菇

這是牛皮菇,只長在芒果樹幹的菌菇。朋友說可吃的,但我不敢吃。An edible fungus found only on mango tree trunk.

Salon as a third place

Getting a haircut is a ritual whenever I am in Taitung. It so happen that I go back once every three to four weeks, perfect timing for a trim.
Shuqing gave me some bananas, a local variety that is humongous. They may look green but are ripe now.

Yam 芋頭

My neighbour came this morning, bearing a gift from his garden, a yam plant. The root has many tiny new shoots, which I removed and planted in a spot with plenty of water. Yam needs high humidity to grow well.



The part that is edible is the black part, only about 10cm in length, but double in volume once cooked.
