The opening is this Sunday at Feathersone Center For the Arts in Oak Bluffs
Feathersone Center for the Arts this afternoon to bring some love/sex/valentine oriented pieces for Feathersone's "Kiss Kiss Hug Hug Revisited: The Art of Love" show. Leslie reminded me that we had done some live drawing together with Charlotte Costa and Allen Whiting many years ago. How time flies. I also met with Patrick of Vineyard Voice about doing some videos.

The power went out around 5:40PM. In the driving wet snow it was getting dark, but not too dark to see as I was walking back from parking Marianne's car down by the road. Suddenly I saw a flash of light through the snow. I thought it must be some sort of freak winter lightning caused by this storm. So I started counting my Mississippis til the thunder to see how far away the lightning was. (Five seconds per mile) I gave up around 20 Mississippi and then a short while later there was light that lit up the sky in the east. It was a large half circle with it's center on the horizon and lasted half a seccond or so. Then there were no more electric lights in the Chilmark valley.
So we had a candle lit dinner. I made scrambled eggs with leftovers and bread toasted on the top of the wood stove. Without the electricity to power our distractions there wasn't much better to do than have a second glass of wine and crank up the wood stove so we could bask in the warmth of our renewable energy heat source that needs no electric power while the winter storm raged outside.
Then the damn lights came back on.
We built the house in 1958 for $10,000. All the doors, windows, kitchen cabinets and plumbing were salvaged. My brother and I worked for $0.50 an hour. That is where I learned the carpentry skills to build my own house next door.
