Free Lance Writer Mike Touzeau
I saw him again, last week before the opening of Changing the World One Thread at a Time. He had made the transition from employee to free lance, working for the News occasionally. I told him I thought he really ought to come to the opening. I was so busy that evening; I think he must have had a wonderful time. I know he called me to check some facts. He read me a few phrases and sentences to be sure there were no errors. Those few sentences tell me that tomorrow the local news paper will give Changing and the artists a full front page second section.
I answered the phone this morning, Regina was asking me to unlock the password on the catalog so they could lift images to print. No, Regina, they aren't a high enough resolution for the newspaper. I'll make you some higher ones and bring you a CD. I was there by ten o'clock.
I had put the kitchen rugs in the washing machine just as I was leaving. I looked down at my slacks when I left the newspaper office. Horrors, I looked as though I had rolled on the dirty rugs. Oh, well, we will see the results tomorrow. The pictures, not the rugs, not my pants, please,
The Green Valley News is small and does not have the links that we expect from the New York Times. I'll see if I can get permission to publish the pages on my website. I will certainly buy enough copies that every artist mentioned will get their own tear sheets by mail.
And since I am procrastinating and not taking care of mail and contracts, I'll post you an image of one of the later works from The Blues. The title is The Blues for a Forgotten Goddess.
