First of all, if there are still any of you out there who have actually missed my incessant ramblings, I apologize for the sudden hiatus. I've had sooooo much going on, I'm not sure where to begin.
For starters, I dissolved my relationship with my former partner. He's moved out and moved on - for the most part, sans some inexplicable bitterness because we are both way better off without the other, and I for one am feeling consistent happiness once again. Sad for him.
I've also begun a new job working for a hopping upscale breakfast and lunch place here in Burlington about a minute and a half bike ride from my apartment. It's the cleanest restaurant I've ever worked in and the people there rock. I felt right at home right away and that makes all the difference.
As of this writing, I have nine of the tires wrapped and painted and the tricycle is ready for installation. I have two more tires to finish and I still need to find another 27" tire to complete the set before I assemble the piece hopefully before Friday when I plan to have my Burlington friends over for a debut party, before installing it in front of The Inn at Montpelier on Saturday morning.
The following Saturday is the Sculptcycle Opening Celebration and Tour with a reverse parade wherein the artists and interested citizens will walk around town on a route to view the works and to acknowledge the artists along the way. The day will finish with an opening reception on the State House lawn with food and music and the awards will be announced at that time.
All that and my new found freedom have kept me as busy as I've ever been and every time I've thought about writing about any of it, I have had cause to consider how overwhelmed I should be and so I was. Go figure.
The Sculptcycle is well documented in photos but I haven't had a chance to do much editing, however I will post about the event and show plenty of pics after the event on June 7th. If anyone is reading this within attendance distance and would like to join the fun, please refer to the Sculptcycle website for specific details and make sure you introduce yourself while you're there.
Thanks for your patience and for your support (you know who you are)... XXKHT
