This fall, I will pack up my files and keyboard and laptop and head about an hour and a half south of Charlottesville, to VCCA. There, for three weeks, I can do what I like. I’ll have a studio and a dorm room and three meals a day.
Haven’t been there in four years, and again will arrive knowing none of my fellow ‘fellows.’ But I imagine by the time I leave, some new people will have joined my circle, and I theirs.
Mostly, though, you go there to soak up the space and time, and, when you are full, to draw from the sources we draw from, to make something. For me, I hope the Something will be a Luna Project close to completeness. But I could be surprised.
It is just wonderful news!
