For someone selling real estate, it’s all about location, location, location. For us creative spirits, it’s all about changes, changes, changes! Once again in my varied working life I’m making changes. It was more than rewarding to create Chestnut Creek School of the Arts via the Arts Council of the Twin Counties, with help from a plethora of friends and colleagues. CCSA is off and running and so am I. It only took 7 years, a quick accomplishment for this type of project. For more information about that endeavor you can read all about it at www.chestnutcreekarts.org. Today I’m launching a new website to launch the changes in my life. This summer I’m working in my garden and enjoying the free time to be creative. I’ll be spending some time at City Gallery, Fine Art, too. Check out all the co-op members at www.citygallerygalax.com. But mostly, this summer, I’ll be enjoying the cool slow paced life of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. In my head I’ll be designing the Mountain Traveler’s Journal (a compact version of The Big Blue), a magazine for tourists and locals, packed with stories about the characters that make up life along The Crooked Road and the artisans of ‘Round the Mountain’s network. Vivid full color pictures in the magazine will entice you to come here to see the grandeur for yourself. But that work will be in my head for another month or two. Look for the next issue in the fall. I’ll work on this website as time permits. Check back often and see if I get any work done and see if all the information for this website gets uploaded that my daughter, Mitone, the web designer is demanding. Until next time, I wish you love and laughter!
