Close, very close
Last night we were at the Studio very late, as we have been every night for the last 2 weeks. We had an assembly line to get labels on bags and boxes, create the studio greeting cards and complete whatever wasn’t done that we could do. Kweli, Dee and Jamie were real troopers and I want to thank them all.
When I arrived, Jamie, bless her heart, had made me a giant bag of homemade biscuits. She had brought blackberry jelly and honey to choose from…and in addition, ice coffee. Thank goodness, or I never would have eaten.
When Kweli arrived with more jewelry, she handed me a black box with a set of earrings and a necklace that I had mentioned earlier to her. It was one that my mind had latched on to…a set I had secretly coveted. She gave it to me. I tried to argue, but she would not take no for an answer. Such is the kindness of the studio artists…all good people.
We are almost there. The art is hung, the cases are full…and the balance of details is left. I knew how well things had come out when Jamie started crying. We cried together. Dreams can be exhausting but well worth the effort.
