As you may have been able to tell, I have not had internet connection for a week and will not have it for another week. I am at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, teaching and learning from a group of 15 students. It has been a wonderful first week and I expect the same from the second. Please come back next weekend for a full update.
One of the beauties of Haystack is that it is at the far tip of an island full of trees which does not allow for high speed anything, let alone something so advanced as wireless connection. One can concentrate on the artistic task at hand with few distractions. Of course, like most advantages, there are disadvantages. I am sitting in the parking lot (three spaces) of the Deer Isle Library which happens to be closed on Saturday after noon. Luckily their wireless is husky enough to allow for pirating outside the building.
See you in a week.
