I’ve started getting ready for my trip to West Texas. Which means that in addition to jeans and new tires, I’ve now bought two blocks of watercolor paper and advertised to my collectors that I’ll be doing ten very special watercolor commissions on the road – in fact, I only have three left, so things are looking up. I’ve also made some progress with organizing the gallery. And I snuck in an Indian lunch at Bombay Sweets, my favorite place. It felt weird going there without Lily. Also, the Indian auntie that’s usually behind the register was not there. I figured it was because of Diwali, and the cashier confirmed she’d taken time off for the holiday.
