I should mention that this trip was made possible by a grant from East Central Arts Council. They funded the trip for me to do research for a novel I’ve been working on for the last 20-some years. (No, they didn’t pay for Diane’s ticket.) Thanks to ECAC and McKnight Foundation.
The novel’s almost done. I’ll let you know when I find a publisher. Don’t hold your breath. I may publish it on this blog.
