a different post

Hi Everyone-

I wrote a post this morning, but left it in the draft folder rather than publish it.  It was a bit doom and gloom about the state of the world in 2020.  I will leave it unpublished for now as I don't like being negative.  Instead let's talk about what is going on with the residency.  We are about 9 weeks out from the start of the residency if it starts on 9/1 (sometime in early September is what we know at this point).  We are both working on gathering the items we will specifically need to make our art on the island and making lists of what we'd like to bring.  We will be interviewed on a program on Big Blend Radio on 7/3.  We'll post details and a link when we have them for you.  That is exciting!  We are talking to a magazine about an article and have press releases out all over the place.  Next week I'll be snorkeling with my friend Shawn at Boynton Inlet.  Snorkeling at high tide is great this time of year and I'll get the chance to test out and remember how to use the underwater housings for my camera and phone.  I want to make sure I have everything I need to take advantage of daily snorkeling off of Loggerhead Key and that I capture some amazing footage.

That's it for today.  Inching slowly forward towards the residency.

  1. The world is a bit doom and gloom right now! The story of the Flying Tortuga brothers is a lovely bright spot in all that darkness. :)

  2. It takes a lot of effort to keep the doom and gloom at bay, but it is worth it to have a place of peace and happiness.
