The Pink Blanket


Baby Elle-Girl with her new blanket
I still remember the first night I used the pink blanket. Elle-Girl was just a bit of a thing, barely two months old and was all wrinkly and fresh smelling from a nightly sponge bath. I laid her out on her changing table and rubbed her down with smooth lavender lotion. Next, I dressed her in new cotton pajamas and was ready to settle her down to sleep. On my way out of her bedroom, I picked a blanket off of the top of the neatly folded collection of baby blankets all given to us by family and friends before Elle-Girl was born.

This particular blanket was given to us by her Great-Grandmother.

The blanket was trimmed in pink satin and the blanket itself was of the softest flannel. It smelled of Ivory baby detergent and was so supple and flowy from never haven been used that it just enveloped our small little girl wrapping her in warmth and comfort. After nursing that night Elle-Girl drifted off into the deepest of sleep, (However, still not deep enough to sleep through the night) I decided that a child must have a blankie all their own to offer them years of comfort and I gave that particular blanket official “blankie rights”. «Read the rest of this article»

APSU Art Student shares silent voice


Austin Peay State University LogoAustin Peay State University senior drawing major Katy Whitfield is daring to scream, shout, cry, and unleash anger like never before – but only silently.

“I believe there is so much more to be said through our human expression,” Whitfield said. “So many of our emotions are not successfully recorded verbally.”

With a simple charcoal stick and a few other raw materials, she is carving the lines and shapes of the human face to render the unspoken.

Sharing this silent voice with the public, Whitfield’s senior show, titled, “Physiognomy,” will be unmasked with an opening reception from 7-9 p.m., Monday, April 27 in the Trahern Gallery at Austin Peay State University.
