A Good Week
Ahhhh, a quiet Sunday afternoon as I write....
To all who now live with and around me, I have proclaimed this to be a proper day “off”। And then, of course, as my ever dabbling play turns into a kind of pleasant work, accidentally this day of rest turns into, well, one which could not exactly be considered “off”... or a day which will not pass, at least, without its’ little reflective accomplishments. It has been a good, if busy week.

Finally, after spending a very long time both in planning and researching, we have settled upon the first brick and mortar location for our longtime cyber based Griffonage Studios. She is to set her first roots in downtown Tucson, Arizona (USA) on Congress Street. The agreement was finalized this week and Griffonage Studios will assume her first domicile (a sweet little storefront which was built around the turn of the 20th century) in mid November 2007. Stay tuned for much more information as Griff begins her launch of arts and ideas.




And now there are two.... sisters:
On September 20, Trixie Grace (our behemoth, big hearted dog) acquired a new little sister.
Meet Madeleine....


Five months old and full of energy, curiosity and intelligence, Maddie was adopted from an animal rescue center in Tucson, Arizona. Tiny little wisp that she is, Madeleine immediately waltzed up to her 92 pound big sis and kissed Trixie squarely on the nose, on first encounter. They have been mates ever since and truly seem to like each other. The dynamic between the two (Mutt and Jeff?) is adorable, if a tad absurd and with endless patience (rather like having a two year old toddler in the house) we are all making a place in our collective heart and in our home for this little blast of vigor and happiness.

For a few months now, we have been wondering whether Arizona was the ultimate place for us to make our new home. As of this week, I would have to say that, at least for now, many of our questions have been answered in the affirmative.
