I just booked my flight to New York – I’ll be there for the middle of October, when the weather should be nice. I’m going on art-related business and to have fun & catch up with old friends. After I return I’ll have one day of rest & repacking and then I fly to Mississippi for a professional development opportunity. October looks to be a bit frantic but fun. I need to save up a bit more money or sell some paintings before New York so I can really have fun, I know all too well what fun costs in New York.
