Hi, everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your summer vacation (although I have
a feeling many are preparing to return to school soon., I have another month
to go. This happens when one is in school until June 27th).
Yesterday I returned from a two week vacation on St. Maartin-the Painter's
Haven- to find an e-mail addressed to me, not artsednet, from our wonderful
Sharon Henneborn on our list. It was titled "Humor Game". I opened it, as I
recognized the sender's address. The e-mail asked me to download something
she had written. Rather than download this, I e-mailed Sharon to ask her if
she had indeed sent this to me. Her reply...NO! Has anyone else received
this strange e-mail, or a similiar one? If so, DO NOT DOWNLOAD! I have also
been getting crazy e-mails written in a foreign language which I discovered
as Korean. I've been deleteing them I would love to put a stop to all
this. Does anyone have an idea about how to do this? How do I bounce these
back to AOL and have them stop this? BTW, the title of that e-mail attached
itself to the artsednet address and my original e-mail to you came back as
address unknown. I have changed the spelling a bit, so hopefully this
message will now get through.
This is the busiest summer for me yet, with almost every week orchestrated
with a different exciting adventure- going somewhere in the U.S. or the world
to paint. Checking my e-mail in-between. Last e-mail I wrote was last
month, the night before my much needed vacation, about "keeping entertained"
and doing one's work in the classroom. I seemed to have been part of quite a
lively thread. Bunki wrote back and explained that she was kidding about
doing her own work in the classroom. As a friend and avid admirer of Bunki,
I should have known she was kidding. No one who gets sooo much accomplished
and is such a committed and talented teacher is lollying around the classroom
trying to "keep entertained" with her own work.
Off to a workshop series on painting, just nearby. Today we will be painting
with pastels. Then, on to Bennington Vermont next week. Mass College of Art
has what appears to be an interesting week of experimental painting. Oh, how
I love to paint! So thankful I have the time, energy, means, and
opportunity- something I'll never take for granted!
