Shortly after I began writing it, I began to mull over the thought of reading it, and interjecting comments. I then realized that I’d have too much on my plate if I were to both read this and read my essay. So at this point in time, I am going to read/talk through the time line. I'm also going to preface my reading by reading an excerpt from Susan Orleans book entitled The Library Book.
This means that I am going to have to read first. If I read the bicycling essay, I’d have read last.
I also wrote introductions that will proceed Bill’s and Nan’s presentations. Nan was here, we went for a ride to Grizzly Camp. After, I got additional details that I will include in my write-up. Very important to note, the importance of making the connections inherent to being an artist and an artistic community activist. I have learned in working on the Bright Lights Book Project that the two, together, are synergistic. I will say that Nan is proof of this.
The ride itself was okay. Fat ponies spent considerable time diving for grass rather than being focused on the task at hand. Soon enough, the grass will dry out and then be covered with snow. Then they’ll again get a move on.
Pete went to the airport and picked up his brother, Pat, who is now asleep in the upper cabin. He retired well before we did – we had chores to finish up. It made me realize that our lifestyle is such that we go to bed much later than most.
Good to have him here. Hoping to put him to work.
