It is quiet here in summer. Most of my neighbors are away and the university students don’t return until September. Everyday I work in the studio and the garden. In the afternoons enjoy listening to BBC PROMS online from July through September. Every year there is such a remarkable range of music and performers and the episodes are archived for easy access.
In July, writers Mark and Robin, from the UK, back in the US for a summer on the Maine coast, visited the studio for a binding day and a paste paper day in July. Here they are showing their bound books. It is always a pleasure seeing them each summer when they return to the Maine coast. We pick up our conversations where we left off and share our writing over tea and lunch.
My current work involves getting ready for a retrospective show, which will be held at the Glickman Family Library at the University of Maine, Great Reading Room, from January 28 through April 30, 2019. The exhibition will show over 40 of my books plus wall pieces. The lecture and exhibition reception is Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at 4pm. Here is a photo of the working plan notebook and my wall schematic. My friend, Kathy, a behaviorist, is kindly helping me keep on track.
Thanks for reading this post. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
