I want to second Richard Aerni's comments, and Gavin Stairs' also, about
how libraries pick which books to shelve. As a member of a library board, I
can testify to the accuracy of what Richard says. I would add, if you have
a special interest, and want information about that interest to be on the
shelves of your library, contact your librarian. Librarians want most to
have the shelf collection of their library reflect the interests of their

i doubt i'll ever move again but i am going to remember this if i ever do
relocate. when we were looking for places to live 16 years ago the first
thing i should have done was to have gone to the local library and see what
the "locals" were interested in. i would have found lots of danielle steel
and a pitiful arts selection and non fiction section. i would have known
this wasn't going to be a great fit. oh well, i think i'm always destined
to be the token artsy fartsy wherever i live. that's how i label myself but
i think the neighbors would just refer to me as the local white trash.

You must come visit us in McGuireville in the Verde Valley. At our place, Arkysanto
- "America's Trailer Trash Theme Park", we got gates to keep the open range horses
and cows out of our pasture. The library is only open when someone checks the book
Seriously, it's a great place to live, just off I-17, with only one stream to ford
on the mile of dirt road leading to our place, 45 minutes to Flag and 90 minutes to
PHX. We're up to 1400 sq ft of studio, heading towards 3200 sq ft. Then, we start
on the adobe (currently living in a 28' Airstream). Wet Beaver Creek and the
world's greatest swimming hole on one side and Coconino National Forest on the
I'm putting together a Ceramics Program at Camp Verde Parks and Recreation in the
old CV High School building. LOLs painting greenware and bisque, learning to cast
their own, then learning to make molds, then learning to touch real clay,
handbuilding, and wheelwork, it's a real challenge moving them out of their comfort
zone when they've been told for 60-70 years that they're not artists. Come summer,
I look forward to kids, clay fights, and all the creativity they bring - they don't
know they're not artists.
I'll be back after the 17th, so call and come on by if you get a chance.

sounds like paradise. i will indeed need to stop by sometime and see your
studio. thanks for the invite. maybe hubby and i can do a road trip this
spring. we rarely do such outings so it would be fun. seems like we are
always flying off somewhere but never seem to seem much of az anymore. when
i was a kid we went camping every weekend all around the state but i didn't
marry a camping kinda guy and i miss it.

there together so may see you in the clayart room if you are going.
