I have been reading about Gypsy culture lately. One of the things I have learned is Gypsies are seldom alone. For them a lot of people and a lot of noise is a good thing. Our life is often a lot of noisy people. A lot of life going on all around us all the time. However there are two quiet places for me; upstairs in the carriage house after lunch for a nap and early morning at the dinning room table between 5-7 to write morning pages, read and think.
Tomorrow morning I am leaving for NYC with Rose, Pearl, my neighbor Dave and his two oldest. We are taking the Beerhorst Family Art Show to Manhattan. Our friends the Gregory's are hosting us at their lovely apartment in the West Village Sunday afternoon (from 12-4 if your in the neighborhood) This is an experiment and an adventure. We are looking for ways to extend our territory and this is one way we thought of besides Etsy and Flickr. If you live in a different city and would like us to come and share our art with your friends let us know and maybe we can come with our little gypsy caravan.
