New Banner
*I got accepted into that Writers' Conference KX told me about. Now I just have to get the scholarship, hyuck hyuck. Maybe I'll try to swing it anyway.

*I go to AZ Friday AM. I've been having nightmares and waking up in a cold sweat. Poor mum said, "So you're really not looking forward to this trip, huh?" Answer: No. But it must be done and who knows, maybe it will be okay.

*My new banner above... It cracks me up. I had an art-sty party at my place. Next time, I think I'll have it be a sculpture-collage party and will bring lots of pipes and wire and weird objects from thrift stores. This one was pretty much to make a little book for N and some crafty-type work.

*I think I might have to leave the studio. The landlord is booking up Art Walk night with children's performances and it's impossible, utterly impossible, to get people up and visiting through that mess (and no lights). I've told him time and time again that I want the Art Walk night free (once a month, surely it's feasible), but he just keeps ignoring me, and the only people who come to the studio any more are buddies. If it's just going to be a work space, I can find something cheaper and smaller and hunker down. Find another way to avoid stagnation. But I don't really want to move all that shit.

*I'm getting behind in teaching. It's hard to concentrate this quarter. I'll be glad when the school year is over; maybe I'll go camp on a beach for a week or something.

*My garden is growing! The chard, salad mix, spinach are all poking their noses out of the ground. The garlic is gung-ho. The potatoes are planted, and in the greenhouse, little noses from the beans, peas, sunflowers, and cabbage. Very adorable. Spring is really quite here.

That's it!
