A Quick Note

I haven't done any painting because I'm trying to get back in the groove of school. I have wonderful students as usual, but I've been tired each day when I get home.

The only artsy thing I've done is Jim and I went to the Harvest Festival with a friend of ours. We'd never been to it before. It was a lot of fun. They had arts, crafts, food and entertainment. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. We bought two prints by Richard Curtner. He does collages. Check out his work on the Internet. It's beautiful and it's different.

A cool thing that happened is our Kindle arrived on Friday. I played with it yesterday. It is an amazing piece of technology. You can download about 3,600 books on it. You can download magazines and newspapers, too. A lot of books are free because the copyright has expired. Newer books are cheaper than the print editions. For me, it won't replace the library or bookstore, hardcover or paperback books, but it's a wonderful supplement. It's wireless, so you can download books at the airport, etc. It will fit in your purse. It's approximately 5"x7"x 1/4". As I discover all of its secrets, I'll share them with you. I'm in love. This was supposed to be shared with Jim, but I think he'll be getting his own one of these days:)
