Several of you appreciated the shot the other day of our common roadside volunteer wildflower, chicory. Here’s another view of something blue. And with regard to something borrowed…
Thanks to the Bells for the loan of a tent to house Ron Campbell and me at next Saturday’s first Floyd Downtown Jubilee. And a heads-up: there will be a limited edition tee-shirt (in various sizes and colors) featuring Ron’s pencil and ink drawing of our barn–the “Slow Road Barn” that also appears on the title page of What We Hold In Our Hands: a Slow Road Reader. I’m glad I’ll have an early crack at’em, I think they will go fast!
Lastly, there not being a marquee outside the library anymore and nothing more than a passing blurb in yesterday’s Floyd Press about it, it will be easy to miss notice of my presentation at the Jessie Peterman Floyd Library at 2:00 tomorrow. I would love to have you join us! This will be my first public engagement with the new book!
NOTE: I’ve housed the larger image of chicory at the Roadside Bloomery gallery that got some good participation a few summers back. You can read the description of the gallery and send me your own roadside images over the next couple of months. We should be able to beef this collection up easily to more than 50! And the stipulation about the shot containing a bit of the road–fuggitaboutit. As long as the shot comes from a roadside as opposed to the woods or mountaintop etc.
