Question for Drew, Who Is at VCCA For Two Weeks

Are there still three chestnut horses in the field between the barn and the main house?

Self took this picture at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA), when she was there August 2007

Oh, the bucolic VCCA fields! Even the fire hydrant looks so -- post-modern!

Drew sent self a music file:  himself playing the piano and singing, our opera, Scene 1.  Self’s hair absolutely stood on end!

She called Drew and said, “I didn’t know you could sing!”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.

    Love the photos! Love VCCA! I was there this past April. I fed carrots to those horses.

    I talked to them constantly. Everyday, because I had to walk the path to my studio in the barn! Which studio did you have?

    I had the apartment in the barn, so my writing space was combined with my living space.

      I don’t remember my room, but I DO remember my studio, very well. By the door was a board on which all the artists who had used that studio wrote their names. And I saw the name “Dame Edith Sitwell.” Was that for real ???

    Not likely. When I was at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, the name Herman Melville was scrawled in the closet of the Master Artist. Sort of the same thing.

    Ha, ha — So it’s sort of like an “Elvis was here” — literary version!
