Suellen Shapero has been following the blog for some time. I met her with her husband, Ed, at Hand Artes Gallery last season, and I guess one time before that in Anna and my gallery when we were in a previous location. At the same time I was introduced to their very good friends Susan and Bob (Susan has been following the blog for awhile now too). Anyway, Suellen reached me some time ago to say they were all four going to be in New Mexico again and were hoping to come by the gallery. Absolutely! Anna and I were there with bells on.
Until that afternoon, I had no idea how richly interesting these people really are. You just can’t know anything about a person in a 20 minute introduction. But on this day, we sat in the gallery and talked about everything under the sun—deep, meaningful, connecting conversations—the kind that change how you see the other—one of those magical afternoons you simply can’t plan, they just happen when everything is in alignment.
And it turns out that Suellen writes her own blog—a wonderful blog in fact. I knew you all would want to check it out. I’m now a subscriber: http://artistoftheeveryday.wordpress.com/.
Just the other day Bob sent me this photo. I wanted to post it because days like these are meant to be shared.
Suellen and Ed are staying in New Mexico for a month, so I genuinely look forward to another visit and hope more of you will decide to come to call.
Love to you all,
