1,350 mile weekend

Just another brief update. This past weekend I drove back to Northwest Arkansas, for the first time since moving from there nine months ago, via Harveyville, Kansas. My wife stayed in Harveyville for yarn school at the Harveyville Project where she furthered her spinning technique and learned how to dye fiber.

I put in some hours at Mission Data International‘s HQ and visited with friends. I talked with occasional contributor Matt Pearson over breakfast about the idea for an artist retreat and the potential of the Hazelton Mfg. Co. building as a location for said retreat. He had some good ideas I’ll have to add to our brainstorm before they slip my mind.

On the way back I was able to meet up with the b.a.l.m. crowd in Lawrence, Kansas for a Sunday morning brunch. We ate crepes and quiche (made with emu egg) and then talked about our work and lives as [aspiring] artists (I had to leave early to pick Hannah up from the retreat).

Chances were decent for us to see some storms on the drive, but for the most part it was overcast and rainy. I did catch this image of just south of Lawrence Saturday evening.

Oh, and we took the puppy with us and she did very well on her first road trip. She even had another puppy to play with for a couple of days.
