I’m packing up again to go work with kids in Glennallen for the next two weeks. Everything is slowed down a bit as I am sick. It must be some latent bug from Golovin, or something I picked up helping a friend in the ER the other night. . . anyway, it’s been a bit of a challenge. The week took a far different shape than I’d expected and I didn’t get anything to speak of done in the studio.
On the other hand, my friend Glenna Gannon has been putting my shop to good use while I’ve been traveling. From the bits and pieces I’ve seen her December print show at Alaska House is going to be very nice. I’m glad SOMEBODY’s getting work done in there!
The supplies are gathered, I’m packing up the car, and unless things get dramatically worse with this sickness I’ll be driving south tomorrow. Once we get a few scheduling details figured out I think all will go well.
Thanksgiving was fun – good friends, great food, a torchlit walk between dinner and dessert, and we got sent home with a fine sampler of pies. There’s a lot to be thankful for. We still have our fifth dog, my friend who had a truck run into his cabin and knock the whole thing two feet off its pilings (while he was inside – and everything in the cabin fell ON him) is more or less ok, there’s good work ahead, a warm house to live in, new skis, and lots of winter yet to come.
