The first day of the Functional Art Show was wonderful. During the reception, when Jon gave a talk and Mary Kellogg read her poetry, was the only time Diane and I got a break. We actually had a line of people waiting to buy the art. My friend Margaret (with some help from my Mom, sister and niece) took care of the food for the reception. Cider Donuts and Local Cheese from Gardenworks, homemade cookies and zucchini bread from Mary and Diane. People came from all over the country and from Canada too. I’m overwhelmed, such an affirming day for the me, the artists, Jon, and Bedlam Farm. Thanks to all who came and shared and all the good wishes from those of you who couldn’t make it.
