A lot of you know Greg-- my best friend and life partner of 40+ years.
Yes, that long.
By the time you get to this point in your life journey together, you can practically read each other’s minds. I don’t even text him to ask him to bring home a half gallon of milk anymore—mental telepathy is so much quicker 😉
So I wasn’t surprised when Greg suggested building a shelving system for my artwork. I'd been thinking about it for several weeks. Granted, my paintings were taking over the entire house—the dining room, the guest room, and the study, not to mention my increasingly claustrophobic art studio—but I’m still going to call it telepathy. Could be survival, but I’m sticking with the soul-mate thing.
Long story short, Greg designed and built a lovely and efficient storage system for me this weekend. And it’s beautiful! I’m so delighted with it. It allows me to see a sizable body of my work at once. I’m already seeing new groupings and connections that I just haven’t been able to see before.
Let me just gild the lily by adding that he worked on this yesterday while I went to the movies with my girlfriends to see the Downton Abbey movie. That’s love, people, pure and simple.
Anyway, here it is. Pretty wonderful, right?
