Off to KENTUCKE!!!!!
(That's what they used to call Kentucky in the early 19th century, which is when I mostly understand the world....). I'm off to Charlestown, Indiana, which is really a northern burb of Louisville, Kentucky. This is a kind of homecoming: I haven't been near Louisville, really, since finishing my now-ancient Ph.D. dissertation in the late 1980s. (Am I really THAT old?). This is the third annual Indiana Fiber and Music Festival. Mostly I just want to take a drive. I have grading to do, and THE best place to grade essay exams is a motel room, where you are more or less captive. Powhatan, Virginia, was simply too far, and I don't feel like hassling with customs today (there are TWO wonderful events at this very moment in Toronto -- the Creativ exposition, and the Toronto Knitting Guild's annual Frolic). So Indiana it is. I will bring home an array of photographs, and probably some yarn, buttons, etc........! svb
