Good day. Loaded new work into Heron’s Way Gallery and was invited to leave my work at the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus’s Women Center for another month and then give a talk on my work/theme before I leave. That has been scheduled for September 25 at 1 pm at the Women’s Center. Also got into the studio this morning and finished up a bunch of fish – some just need wires, some need staining and still need finishing metallic touches.
We are on the last leg of getting ts crossed and is dotted with the house and starting our move (either Sept 1 or 15 depending on how fast they can fix the things discovered by the house inspection).
Linda Update: I was pretty much doing updates on myspace, but I’m only blogging here for a while just because of time constraints, so I’ll do the Linda update here. Talked with her a long time yesterday. Her hair has all fallen out (that was fast!) and she has pretty scarves to wear. I told her big earrings and lots of eye makeup and she’d look very New York (what do I know about New York? but she’d look great. She has beautiful eyes and great skin). Unhappy news is that her finger tips are feeling numb. The doctor is watching that very closely as that is irreversible damage. They are also paying attention to her toes. Nonetheless, she is in good spirits and feeling good. Doing normal things. She had treatments 2 Fridays, was off a Friday and goes back today for her 2nd round of chemo. Happy news for her is that they can let up a session so she can go to her stepdaughter’s wedding early September. She has really been looking forward to that. All in all, a positive report.
thought for the day:
"The future is not a result of choices among alternative paths offered by the present, but a place that is created – created first in the mind and will, created next in activity. The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them, changes both the maker and the destination."
