Many days and quite a few miles have passed by since then but I'm still basking in the sunlight of that mountain top experience. I hope I'll be spending time there once again in the future. It's truly a special place.
Between then and now I've had a chance to see folks I grew up with when we had a class reunion. I've gone to Asheville a couple of times--once to have photos done at Tim Barnwell's studio and another time to visit the Southern Highland Craft Guild fall show and to spend a couple of days at friends' place near Sapphire, NC (and photograph their bounty of Yates apples and some of the glorious surroundings).
I've finished the bloodroot tapestry mounting; started a tapestry based on a painting done while at the Lillian Smith Center and am almost finished with it; warped the large loom with a 60" wide warp to do a piece from another painting completed at the Center;
I've also taught a brief intro to tapestry for the weaving class at the university:
Oh... and had my tires rotated and oil changed.
