Still raining and trying to figure out how to get to the highway without sprouting wings, I fell down the worm hole of the internet. It's the end of October and I find myself unwanting to pack, re-pack, load the trailer and head out on the road. Can't remember the last time I was this burned out.
I have been driving past this building for a few years. They lowered the price, yet again. It was a funeral home at one time. Then it was slated for the wrecking ball to make way for a new drug store..... because we sure need more of those! The community banded together and moved the building two blocks down to an empty lot; and there it sits, empty since the move.
I have fantasized about a gallery in this space. Maybe live on the second floor, teach clay in the awesome basement and gallery on the first. There is even room in the back for a coffee shop. Could rock out the landscaping around the old victorian. Plenty of room for parking and it's right in downtown. Great small private college a mile away and and and.........
I stopped and peered through the windows the other day. Icky funeral home wall paper but all in all wide open space....... perfect for a gallery.
Our town is falling has fallen on hard times as I watched businesses board up and for sale signs posted left and right. Could this even work? Can I even write a business plan?
and where would I put the chickens and garden????
Lots to think about driving through the remnants of Sandy on my way to Rochester........
