After thursday’s feasting, I persuaded my family to make the trek up to Portland for the opening of “Little Things” at Guardino Gallery. We spent the day together enjoying the city, then Josh and the kids headed to a movie theatre while I went to work. The Gallery was packed all evening despite the downpour outside. I talked to an endless flow of people, none of which had ever heard of me. I definately felt the small town girl amongst city slickers, and realized the work I have ahead of me, carving out a name for myself beyond Eugene. Daunting and Invigorating!
