Sometimes I love it when classical singers switch over to Jazz!

"Hence the despotic and all-absorbing power of art, as also its astonishing power of soothing: it frees from every human care, it establishes the artifex, artist or artisan, in a world apart,…

Fringed Red Scarf
A little something I completed just in time for winter -- the very iconic red knit scarf. It's warm and has a lovely pattern. I'm sad it's so difficult to get a picture of this red!

If you're an avid follower of the music interest, you'll recognize this energetic singer from her song "Grey." Ironically, if you see Alice's more recent performances, it seems she no longer wears a…

I have been struggling for the past two months to formulate a reaction -- a productive statement to give -- to the instances of hate crimes committed on Fordham's campus this semester. I am however, at a loss. These events have repeated themselves, as if there is no sense of shame for the bigotry committed and witnessed by whole university community. The apparent apathy of the student body has been just as shocking as the incidents themselves. In the midst of these events, I am overwhelmed by feelings of outrage, shock, and isolation.
I would like to share the information that has been released about Fordham's recent incidents because I can no longer stand for these events to go unnoticed.

September 13, 2015: A racial slur was scrawled on the door of an American American student in a university dormitory. The NYPD classified this as a hate crime.

September 14, 2015: A swastika was found etched into a stairwell wall, right before the Jewish high holy days. [acknowledged in email from the university president]

November 11, 2015: A swastika and white supremacist reference found etched in a university bathroom. [acknowledged in an email from the university president]

November 13, 2015: In off-campus university housing, in the middle of the Bronx community, students heard their neighbors loudly chanting racial slurs and white supremacist phrases [presumably during a party].

I am at a loss because this behavior is the antithesis of this university's mission as a Jesuit institution. Jesuits are devoted to social justice, service and education. Students at Fordham are taught these values in classes, talks and orientation events. The perpetrators of these crimes must have closed their eyes and ears very thoroughly.
