Oola and I are packing for our road trip to Tennessee and the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. Oola has dragged out the old magic carpet and is practicing. Mom’s Memorial Prius has been lubed, aired, oiled, vacuumed, and is being packed. When you think of it in the historical perspective the Prius really is something that would have been seen as magic transport.
But now, it is very dirty and not about to be washed soon. The drought in California is much worse than anyone thought — even groundwater is showing the strain. Right now, it is very anti-social indeed just to wash the car.
We don’t know what we will see but will keep you apprised of the Sierras, the desert, the Platte River, the meeting of the Missippi and the Ohio maybe, the Museum of American Art in Chattanooga, the Smokey Mountains, and other wonders as we encounter them all abounding . And of course, Arrowmont itself and my teacher, Daniel Mayer. I’m taking his week-long workshop “Low Tech/High Octane: Printmaking for Artists Books.” No computers!
We will post whenever wi-fi is available.
