Seizure Mama and Rose

Our family took a three-week trip across the country to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park. Our son was in high school and Rose was in middle school. It was the perfect time to take such a trip. Our children were mature enough to handle the long hours on the road. I will always […]

David Greenberger’s project as artist-in-residence at Grand Central Art Center was to find the stories behind the lives of Santa Ana’s diverse senior citizen population. He took the approach of an artist, not a journalist. It was more about conversation, about honoring the ordinary and finding a tale, thought or memory that resonated with him. “What I seek is something unique in just the two of us talking, which is a conversation you feel great about afterwards,” said Greenberger in a recent interview at CSUF’s Grand Central Art Center. “We talked about their shoes … and how they lost their hearing in the war. The conversation had its own momentum.” With the support of the art center, he developed a text based on the dozens of recorded conversations he had in 2017 with seniors at the Santa Ana Senior Center, Tustin Senior Center, Heninger Village, Flower Terrace Apartments and Bowers Museum. He took those stories and in spring 2018 went into the studio with Prime Lens, the Chattanooga-based musical ensemble he assembled four years earlier. On Saturday, Greenberger and Prime Lens will perform their collaboration, “It Happened to Me,” in the Bill Medley Auditorium at Santa Ana High School. The piece, which has been released on two CDs with a total of 60 tracks, has such titles as “Airports, Fairgrounds, Circuses and Theaters,” “James Brown in Aliquippa,” “Bad Elevator,” “A One Car Guy,” “Waiting for Lunch,” “Throwin’ Out a Cat,” “Rock the Casbah” and “Surfin’ Japan.” #gallery-6770940-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-6770940-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-6770940-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-6770940-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ The recordings of David Greenberger’s “It Happened to Me,” on CD and limited edition vinyl, feature cover art by renowned Los Angeles artist Ed Ruscha.

Tish Leon, at right, is one of the many seniors Greenberger interviewed. (Photo by Greg Andersen, Contributing Photographer) The performance will have 26 pieces, not all 60, Greenberger said. Tish Leon plans to be at the event. Her story is #13 on the first CD, “Class B Motorhome and a Dog.” The 68-year-old senior advocate was Greenberger’s last interview and the only one he didn’t do at one of the centers, apartments or museum. The two met for lunch at a cafe near Grand Central. “I said why not. It sounds like it could be a fun thing to be involved in,” Leon said, describing her reaction when she was asked to participate. Greenberger recalls that she talked about growing up in San Diego, her jobs — doing inventory work at the Long Beach Shipyard, working for the nonprofit Latino Health Access and the Public Law Center, and her recent volunteer work as a member of the Orange County Senior Citizens Advisory Council. But what really got his attention were her post-retirement plans: to sell her Santa Ana condo after her final payment in 2022, to get a Class B motorhome and take off for adventures with a dog. Leon said she loves to keep on the move. “I was a Post-it note in my family’s phone book for many, many years,” she said. She’s been researching her plans for a while, reading travel blogs to find the best motorhome to buy and the safest places for single women over the age of 50 to travel. “What I learned is if you’re going to be a single woman and traveling, you’ve gotta have a dog,” Leon said. She doesn’t have one yet, but said she knows she will find the right one when the times comes. She shared a recent dream where she was in a park and a dog came up to her and put its head on her lap. She’s convinced it’s meant to be. Leon said she has been impressed with the way Greenberger has put music to the seniors’ words. “It’s been really exciting to be part of this, especially when I heard the final product and heard everybody’s stories,” she said. Saturday’s event and audience will be filmed for an upcoming documentary by Beth Harrington on Greenberger’s life work titled “Beyond the Duplex Planet.” The 63-year-old New York artist is best known for creating the long-running periodical, The Duplex Planet, which ran from 1979 to 2010. Through conversations with residents of a Boston nursing home, he developed Duplex Planet Illustrated, a comic book adaptation of the material drawn by a variety of alternative artists and illustrators, including Peter Bagge, Drew Friedman, Dan Clowes, Jim Woodring, Chris Ware, and James Kochalka, published by Fantagraphics. The project also took different approaches, including The Duplex Planet Radio Hour with New York Public Radio, a series of CDs, and books of the collective conversations. John Spiak, Grand Central director and chief curator, said he knew about Greenberger’s work on aging when he was curator at the University of Arizona Art Museum in the mid-2000s and used his work in an exhibit there on senior citizens. “He was talking to seniors in a way that he was having conversations that were contemporary,” Spiak said. “I thought it would be nice to explore who is living in our downtown area and I thought of David to have those conversations.” Greenberger ended up using Spiak’s father, John A. Spiak, who sometimes goes to the Tustin Senior Center with his wife, on “It Happened to You.” It’s #3 on the first CD, “Rockwell.” “That was a fun one,” Greenberger recalled. “He was sort of amused by the whole thing. He said, ‘oh, the Rockwell. Which is that Rockwell painting where the guy is looking at the modern art painting and scratching his head? I’m that guy.’” Two and a half hours and 60 tracks is a lot, Greenberger acknowledges. But that’s the whole idea. “This should be so big you can’t hold it in your head,” he said. “This is what the project is about. The range of people here, their backgrounds. Where they’re from. It’s so rich and deep and wide that you can’t possibly hold it in your head.” “It Happened to Me” will be performed at 6 p.m. Saturday at Bill Medley Auditorium, Santa Ana High School, 520 W Walnut St, Santa Ana.

A blood sugar reading of 380 is not what I planned to see before lunch. I had been watching my sensor all morning and it was holding steady under 200, so a reading over 300 was a shock and instantly launched me into a furious frenzy. Unfortunately, my children and my husband usually take the […]
