September 15, 2011Had a meeting this morning down in the Beast. Ken A. and I met John Booth at Matt's Big Breakfast, which is tiny diner just off Central below Roosevelt. Old style stools, tiny tables, but giant servings and great food. I will be back.
Met at nine with the crew at KAET and then had a follow up meeting at the Arizona Republic regarding a certain centennial package we are pitching. Too soon to talk about it, but know we are crazy excited about it.
Speaking of crazy. . .
Heading up the hill tomorrow to Prescott for the Unveiling of the United States Postal Service Arizona Statehood Commemorative Stamp. The event is being held on the north side of the Yavapai County Courthouse on the Prescott Courthouse Plaza at 120 S. Cortez Street. Someone I know is the artist on the stamp. Supposed to be a surprise but if you have been reading this blog for more than five days, I think you know who it is. Hint (Edmundo Segundo):
Had a visit from dignitaries of the Ute Tribe this afternoon. Fun talking to them. They have a great museum in Ignacio, Colorado chaired by Lynn Brittner.
Sometimes I peruse my old sketchbooks, looking for inspiration. This one is a hoot and a half:
I'm pulled into the past, both in history and in my own record of sketches. It can be distracting and it can be inspiring. Gee, I wonder what ol' Gaston has to say about this?
"One must always maintain one's connection to the past and yet ceaselessly pull away from it."
