Then there's the challenge of notifying all the business accounts, banks, insurance people, etc. I'm still working on that. For the time being, I'm apparently still receiving emails at the old address as well, which is kind of reassuring.
On a happier note, I spent this evening at the ARTS Center in Fayetteville, taking part in a "conversation" with other artists about our works related to the Willow Springs Bridge. This was fun--I went over with friends Barbara and Nils, and there were more than 50 people there and about 40 artworks on the walls. Now, Fayetteville is tiny, smaller than Eagle Lake, but this event had really captured the imagination of artsy folk as far away as Houston, and I think one piece was mailed from out of state also. No jury, no judge, no competition, and we all took our work home after the conversation. I had a lot of positive feedback about "Hunters Moon--Fayette County," which was the only fiber wall hanging in the show. Everyone brought snacks and beverages to share, along with much good will. There was a lot of photography, paintings, a metal sculpture, a pillow with a photo of the bridge on it, Barbara's beautifully colored paper and fiber piece, and a number of poems and a short story read by the authors. Made some good contacts and came away refreshed. Then to Barbara's house for supper of potato soup and salad, all right out of their garden. A very good end to the day. I went home with tomatoes and a jar of home-canned beets.
Tomorrow is Pentecost Sunday, with church service by the lake and a nice luncheon afterward. I have Margot's Moroccan Carrots marinating in the fridge to take as my contribution (I just had to check on how many Rs there are in Moroccan--had it right the first time.) Late now--good night all.
