A Little Break after a Busy Few Days

Well!

Finished off the week with lots going on – did an interview with CBC Radio Corner Brook on Thursday morning*, and then spent the afternoon and early evening at Green Point, hauling and placing rocks out on the wave-cut platform in preparation for the installation.

*(The radio spot aired on Friday morning, but I missed the broadcast, as I had my head down working on the talk for Friday night! I am hoping I can get a link or sound file for it, so I can post it here.)

Had a great time last night at the artist talk, and speaking with people afterward.
A Huge THANK YOU to everyone that attended!

What a turnout! We had 50 people in the audience at Galliott Studios. It was a little overwhelming (in a good way) at first – the people here are so warm and welcoming though, that it was easy to feel among friends.
A couple of special shout-outs are in order: to Rob and Greg from Parks Canada for arranging and setting up the technology and getting signs posted in town promoting the talk, and to Jennifer at Galliott Studios for being such a lovely host.

I had some really great questions after the talk too, and had some people step up right away as volunteers to help us build the work when we do the main installation. A tremendous thing, to feel so supported by a community when I am so very much a newcomer, and ‘from away.’

Had a lovely walk back to the house afterward, complete with a full moon peeking over the hills.

This morning we woke to brilliant blue skies, blazing sun, and a bay so still it looked like a mirror. Again, whales passing through. A very auspicious start to a slower paced day … Taking a little time to catch up on various things, do some writing, relax, and take stock of the ‘what to do next’ list, after a very busy week of long days and work on the rocks.

It’s been a good day; productive in a recuperative, quiet way.

This pony lives just down from the house; he seemed glad to see us come by on the way back from the water

And now, a bit more work, then dinner.

Enjoy the weekend, everyone!
