well. It just goes to show you me that I should clean out my mailbox more often, because there was a suspiciously slender envelope in there from the Trustees of Reservations saying (to my amazement) that I'd been accepted to the Crane Estate Art show and sale. I thought little envelopes meant thank-you-for-your-interest-NO

The pieces I'd applied with? My mother walked off with two weekends ago. To her credit, she left me a check for them (that doesn't usually happen). Still, they are gone as gone can be.

So I need to get off my butt (and off a horse, given my life lately) (notnotNOT falling off, please?) and make a couple newer-but-similar pieces, maybe a little larger, and 5 or 6 reproductions that can be shrinkwrapped and sold for less. Before October 31, when they have to be delivered.

my little brain is shrieking YIKESyay?YIKES!!yay?!YIKESyayYIKESyay??

in other news, the Boy, and his fish, which I made and am deeply proud of

The fish, not the Boy.

The Boy I am simply smitten with, as he is clearly the best and sweetest and smartest and funniest nephew I have ever had.

Malcolm Gladwell, who I love for a variety of reasons, has produced an article that leaves me still more in his debt.

With his usual combo of research and interview, he draws a distinction between prodigies (which I've always known I wasn't) and experimentalists, which label I can cheerfully claim. I have been making things in fabric for years. I finally feel I am making interesting things, and improving. It has been a long time, and I have been distracted by small things like children and horses, but I am more encouraged now than I have been for a while.

Forward!
