The show is 1/2 set up. got the walls up, the floor down, the lights hung, and all the shelve in place. I'm in a new "neighborhood", back behind the stage, with folks around me I've never hung out with. I'm sure I'll get to know them pretty well in the next 11 days.
I had one of those moments that makes it all come home for me yesterday. One of the folks from a neighboring booth came by to ask if he could take some pictures of my work on opening day. He has a dear friend who loves my work and is fighting cancer. She wanted him to help her do a little virtual shopping trip because she won't be able to make it to the show this year. Wow. You put the work out there, but you don't know where it will land or how it will touch someone. I'm honored and humbled.
Anyway, Shannon's on her way... we'll be there all day through tech check at 7:09 tonight.
Tomorrow I'm up at hell o'clock to appear on the KVUE morning news at 6:40 am to talk about the 'Dillo and what I'm doing there. Don't miss it. I may not be coherent.
