Ready to go-Not too much stuff for 3-months of living and artmaking
Dearest Readers,
The car is packed and Etta James pooch and I are on the journey to the Green Mountains, land of my childhood and Irish relatives. My heart leaps.

Miss Gabby Garmin GPS is updated, retrofitted with a pinky drive full of the latest 2013 North America maps. She is my windshield sidekick.

My lifeblood-I do whatever the GPS tells me
Saturday June 8: First leg of the trip. Cool overcast drive to The Hambidge Center in the North Georgia mountain town of Rabun Gap. It’s the closing reception for the show “Fables of the Eco-Future”, curated by the amazing Lisa Alembik. I’m in front of my drawings and photos of the hole I dug last summer in West Rutland Vermont, talking a little about that personal landscape of fullness and emptiness, the process of delving into the self, and the connection it engendered with something bigger.

I spent the night at the peaceful, paradise land and home of artists Lyn and Laurence Holden located off War Woman Road in Clayton Georgia, a few miles from Hambidge. A river runs by their front porch, the birds are quiet, a distant car from an unseen road thumps rhythms through the dark green silence of approaching dusk.

 I’m still talking in front of their hilltop home. Time to get going…
