Today to my surprise there was an unexpected gift in the mail to me. I am doing a workshop at the Spruill Art Centre in Atlanta, Georgia in March and the people there sent me this very nice hand made copper hammered key chain with a note saying they are looking forward to my visit. What a kind and thoughtful thing to do and say! I've always maintained that it is the things you do when you don't have to that make all the difference. I've already made dates with friends in Atlanta for southern BBQ, bourbon and blues. I can't wait and this little gesture made me all the more anxious to spend some time with my southern friends.
