at 5:40 yesterday hannah left for grad school. driven to boston for a city experience, she left behind her car, bike and most of her stuff. and me. she was scared, but has already connected with friends. my kids are on both coasts now.
mouse attack: one of the visiting setters pointed a mouse in a trunk/table in my livingroom. inside, there was indeed a mouse, and the disaster of a momento from my babyhood.
it's been cleaned up, there was mouse poop and piss everywhere. gross mess and now i have one less hidey hole.
after lunch i went to st lawrence university as a guest of mark mcmurray and his book arts class. they were having a special workshop given by these folks.
peter and donna thomas have been trundling abou the u.s. all summer in their pickup and gypsy wagon. they parked it at slu and students stopped in. so did i and took some pics.
also visiting campus were the combat papermakers. so the wagon gathering included the drews, tom lascall, mark who pedalled up and a slew of slu students. (he he he)
horrible shot. apologies. look at the treatment of the gauze (binding cloth-super-mull) curtain weighted down by buttons sewn on the hem. imagine the clickety sounds from a breeze.
