jury duty

Spent the day in Asheville jurying for the four county arts councils grants. What a wonderful experience that is, unlike the jury duty you thought of when you saw the title! i did get called up for that once, actually forgot about it and called halfway Thur the day, lucky me, the case was dropped or something. so being involved in arts councils affairs is always rewarding to me. i spent over three years on the Mitchell/ Yancey county arts council board and in the end just felt overwhelmed by my schedule, so to be asked to be involved again was nice. I truly feel all artists should get involved with their local arts council even at the smallest level. i have had peers complain about various aspects of our local arts council, its easy to get involved and put your opinion out there, so you cant complain if you don't want to be part of the solution. good day, Evan,and Lisa are playing ball with nevi as dusk sets, cant miss anymore of it.
