I was looking forward to being a short-term village artist at Holden Village (teaching photo and writing classes) starting March 16. However, given the coronavirus and the rapidly changing news surrounding it, I've decided to cancel.
I am extremely bummed as I looked forward to seeing old pals there and pushing myself creatively.
But given the long incubation period and that Seattle is a hotbed for the virus, it just doesn't seem wise to travel there and potentially expose myself and others to such an illness.
As I have been thinking lately: I don't have living grandparents, but other people do.
So instead, I'm in the Ozarks freelancing (photo and text) until May and covering baseball.
Update: not watching baseball because of postponement. But still writing about it at OlAbner.com.
