We also met Don Featherstone and his wife Nancy -- Don designed the original Pink Plastic Flamingo. I'm serious. As a former collector of PPF's I wanted to get a photo of us with him but, alas, we drifted apart, perhaps next year.
It's always wonderful to see the authors who show up and talk to the editors about what they're working on. It's a glorious and invigorating experience and I'm already looking forward to next year's. One thing I like about Schiffer is ... the feeling that you're part of a family. (I once had a book published by McMillan, one of the behemoths and I felt like nobody knew who I was when I called.
Anyway. Trillian had a vintage 1940's dress she wanted a photo of so just as the rain started, we slipped from the warehouse, through the sculpture garden and into the fields and snapped a couple of photos with my Panasonic GF1 and a flash on a cord held off camera left. The cows looked at us, chewing slowly.
I came home feeling very grateful for where I am in life, the people who surround me and the things we do.
I hope your day is going well.
