    (as always) excellent posts Kelly!

    Rebecca Solnit (one of my favorite writers and a personal hero) writes about Yves Klein, including this piece and ‘blue’ in her book A Field Guide to Getting Lost.

    I highly recommend!

    My friends have been so helpful in these Yves posts. Miranda turned me onto this photograph and now you—I would love to read more about him. I will find a Rebecca Soinit book straightaway!
