Thank you!

[ Quilty available at eBay]
Thank you all, old friends and new, for your comforting words about the downsizing. The shock has worn off, and after a day or so of rest, I'll be giving thought to what comes next. It is an opportunity to do art full-time, but the bills must be paid, so I'll be looking for magazine work too. A couple of good friends in the field are also keeping an eye out for freelance jobs; I can't ask for more.
A lot has changed in a short time: apart from the loss of my job, my flamenco school is moving from location to location. We're like a group of gypsies. We had one temporary studio, which got cancelled and we had to go to another one. Next week we have to go to yet another location. [Meanwhile the boss is looking for permanent quarters.] And then there was the (delicious) shock of being contacted by Somerset Studio. Going by the deadline I was given, I would guess that my piece will be in the July/August issue (publication end of June).
Things do happen in threes and this one was a mixed bag, although the good trumps the bad!
Have a peaceful weekend!

  3. This is difficult to first say that I´m sorry You lost Your job and then Congrats to being contracted by Somerset studio!! There is probably a meaning with all that happens to us and hopefully we are all alert to follow the "hints".
