Hi Tom, I haven't moved just yet. Packing furiously and waiting forever for the lawyers/bank/gods of real estate to set a close date. Frustration land. I saw the post/pics of your exhibit. Congrats on that. If I could mosy on down there right now I know I'd love it. Same with Red Molly. I looove Bluegrass. I think I'm going to miss both of those by a few days. Grrrr. I'll probably be ready for some framing around the middle/end of December.
I really know that there are police who have lousy judgment and/or overreach with their power, putting it nicely. I've had experience with it here in Yorktown. I'm sure Beacon is no different, probably even more intense in that department. That's why I say that too heavy a police presence can be demoralizing. Or worse. I guess Beacon needs to find that balance, if possible.
Yeah, I agree with you - we should thank our lucky stars we're here and not in Japan or Libya. Or a lot of other places for that matter!
I'm not bad at executing professional framing techniques - been doing my own for awhile, and I used to be a graphic designer. But I lack the experience and immersion in framing that transforms it into an art. When I need a really good one, to show my stuff, then I'll go to the pro!
I may have some pastels I need framed in a little while, and I probably don't have to wait until I move to get them to you. Beacon is only 30 min. drive from Yorktown. At the moment, I'm reeling from the work of getting my house ready to sell. It just went on the market this past weekend. When I recover from this incredible trauma, I'll get the framing going.
Speaking of moving, my husband and I were in Beacon this weekend driving around neighborhood and house scouting. We wound up falling in love with Beacon Hills. The forest right there is so compelling. I know that Beacon Hills is technically in Fishkilll, so I was wondering - if we did wind up living there, would that put us "out of the action " so to speak? Don't know if you can answer that, but I figured I'd ask, just in case.
