Only 8 Hours Away...

...and if I lived here, I think I would consider driving it for my sanity's sake.

I am at a conference. Lest you get too excited by that word, this is a Framing Conference. Where we learn how to stretch canvas, and display our frame corner samples, and pick up cheap China oil paintings to display in our stores. I am not here for any retail kind of purpose, I'm here with my artist to see what we can do to improve our presentation.

In syn city. They even make fun of that name. A young woman in front of me in class yesterday sported a t-shirt with "Sinner" across her shoulders, loud and clear. Unless she was a recent born-again, I think she was making fun of this city's other name.

Reno is only 8 hours away, you can make it to the local Chesterton meetings once a month. If I lived here, I would do it.

Are there any Chestertonians in this city?


  1. I used to work in and Art and Framing retail store up here in BC, and in the framing section I printed off and wanted to put up a sign which quoted GKC:

    "Art consists of limitation. The most beautiful part of every picture is the frame."

    The manager didn't think it would be a good idea since it might make the customer think we thought their art was lousy.


  2. Yep, I was in Las Vegas.
    And glad to be out.

    But having taken a very cheap flight which left in the middle of the night, I now need some sleep.
