Its Saturday …
So, Saturday is here again;I am attending another Open Studio event this time at OpenHand OpenSpace at Brock Keep, here in Reading. I am not sure what to expect the workshop is called “Lines and Forms from
While this concerns me a little, it is the premises themselves that worry me. I have been there several times and it is a fine building, in a prison sort of way; but it is cold even on a summer’s day the protective walls do not allow the sun to penetrate; it is of course difficult and costly to heat such a place. I know that in time I will become acclimatised and not notice my icy breath. I will be start to apply the layers and pack my tea that is always comforting on such occasions soon.
The subject matter is very intriguing. I worked high in the Andalucian mountains in a voluntary capacity for a little over 6 years, so the area is familiar. I liked it very much, so much so that I hoped to retire there and and fulfil my retirement as a librarian in a Buddhist retreat. This didn’t happen not only was it not financially viable, the direction of my devotion turned to the Americas.
Nonetheless, Andalucia still holds a place in my heart so the class will be lovely … if not as warm as I would like.
