It is a shame that your plans have changed and the time will be cut
short. It goes so fast doesn't it? Oh yes, you said this is your first
natl convention. Trust me, the time flies by! It is a great learning
experience and a huge art education PARTY! At any one time there are a
least a dozen places you want to be which I personally find
frustrating. I want to see and do it all! Being in Washington DC
itself will make the choices only more varied and appealing. And next
year the conference is in LA. Can you imagine the party that the Getty
will throw for us in 2000? Gotta save up now to go!
