  Frédérique Morrel The French artist Frédérique Morrel was horrified to discover that when her grandmother died, all of her handicrafts were thrown away. Since then, she has been pursuing the idea of bringing her grandmother’s works back to life in order to revive the passion that was inherent in them. In the process, she has developed a completely new artistic concept that “ decycles ” unnoticed and unvalued pop artifacts, thus helping them make the transition to a new life cycle.  ** Thankfully, no animals were harmed in the making of  Frédérique Morrel’s art.  The horns and fur are real; the rest is a mix of taxidermy molds and vintage needlework.  While amusing and perhaps a bit shocking, the trophies that adorn the Seventh Floor are “tame” compared to some of Frédérique’s other work which include life size horses, deer, wild boar and even humans (which they call “ ghosts ”.)  If the artists’ goal is to “re-enchant” our world, then

Poet Ana Daksina (Eureka, CA)


(Another occasion in which the poet made use of her works to celebrate local excellence)

Amigos Burritos

Many of the customers
One finds lunching here
Uniquely fascinating
To inquiring gaze appear

Conversations taking place
Over tacos here and there
Proceed in pleasant harmony
Between people self-aware

Fueled by genuinely
Delicious yummy food
Which turns the feelings naturally
To the wholesome and the good

They work hard behind that counter
Morning, noon and night
Creating for their diners
This quiet haven of delight

It isn’t often that I have
Funds discretionary
In their spirit’ual surrounding
Spend time eating happily

But when I do it’s swift unto
That fragrant place I go
The nourishing good energy
Of Eureka’s Amigos know
