Sorry to hear ya disturbed by the negative comments on the list.
If it's been there of late I've missed it mostly because I've been so
busy or gone that I've deleted almost everything. I love this group
and plan to hang around looking for subjects that have interest to me.
I may even sign up after I move to New Mexico. I'll stay involved with
my watercolors and perhaps with art education maybe at a museum.
Nine weeks into the school year can be tough on some folks. I was
always laid back and claimed that nothing bothered me. But if one is
having a bad day or week it shows in what one writes. I try to not
worry about it so much. Anyway from a fellow Kansan, I hope things
go good for you and I hope to see you at the conference in Salina.
