I apologize to our readers who have been looking forward to updates about our Yonked existence. I’ve been subsumed by my work on Bright Night Providence, the New Year’s Eve Festival in Providence that I’m responsible for. This year has been the test year to see if I can run it from far away, and the answer is “Yes, it is definitely possible. It just takes even more energy!”
Most of my work for the festival (fundraising, artist-hiring, organizing) can take place just about anywhere. But you have to have meetings with people, and that means travelling to RI to do it. It’s about 3 hours there (less without traffic or stopping for gas or other errands) and I don’t mind driving it at all– although driving is more tiring than it should be. I get to listen to my ipod, the radio, and of course talk to the throngs of people I need to talk to to get the festival on track.
This year the festival is going to be very good– with a huge focus on magic and circus. If you are in the area, I suggest checking it out.
As for the Yonked house itself, well, let’s make a couple of more posts about that….
