SHE here - commandeering the blog.
Every now and again I end up meeting people who come to the gallery. I am not always in the house or around when people stop by. However, one day last week Cara was otherwise engaged -perhaps trying to give the goat a perm- and it was all me. On the end of the honking horn were ‘The Sisters French’ visiting from Ontario. Upon entering, they asked, “Are you Cara? Do you write the blog?” I answered no to both questions. They might have been disappointed but if so, they never let on. They came in and thus began one of my favourite visits in the gallery. I am of the mind that I was meant to be around on that day because as we got to talking, I became more and more convinced that we were travelling through life on parallel planes – that there was some sort of strange synchronicity afoot. After many laughs, misunderstandings (which, in turn, brought more laughs) and strange connections, the sisters left and I kept laughing. I have since, unsuccessfully, tried to figure out a way to mount the sealing sculpture to the ceiling. I have also met and housed a new kitten whose name as assigned by Cara is "Stanley Zbornak". What Cara doesn’t know is that when we first met he told me, in the tiniest of whispers, that his real name is Denelda. What this means is that the next time I say I have a cat named Denelda, it will be true. A great big thank you to ‘The Sisters French’ for a lot of laughs and a memorable visit.
P.S. To the sister who thinks I am a spring, I am still highly suspicious about the authenticity of your beach glass collection.
