I'm thinking I should drive my ass down to Northampton, Ma. and visit the red/orange google blops of art galleries. It's just over 3 hours drive AND a Trader Joe's exists there. What little online reading I have done, it appears there is a decent art community there.
A little day trip sounds like a good pill to swallow. I can load up the car with frozen food and packages of nuts from Trader Joe's. I can walk around and look at art and try to understand why no one has picked me yet to be in their 2nd friday of every month art walk that I signed up for last year online. What kind of art is down there anyways? Anybody been there? Have art or restaurant recommends? It'll be worth it I think just to get away. I could go for a long hike on the Nomwotuck Rail Trail. Maybe take some pictures or find scrap.
I was going to go yesterday or this week but alas snow is now once again falling and covering the ground. The weeks forecast calls for rain and snow every day. I will wait until it's nice so I can enjoy being out. In the meantime I've been lightly treading in the dark hole and might actually get some more clocks made soon.
As an aside, I watched another doc. and this time didn't let myself loathe humanity even though it would have been easy.... I have to recommend this one. Bill Maher's Religulous. I felt somehow empowered just knowing Bill is gutsy enough and educated enough to take this on.
