The Travel Channel, Recession, etc
I have resigned off of travelling this year. Far anyway, or at least out of the country. I turned down some Artist Guest slots only because I didn't want to travel or organize myself to do so. Locally, for me, there are some fine museums and cities like Boston, and New York which have some amazing things to see.
But watching the Travel Channel, why the need to actually go someplace? I found this a pretty amazing realization just recently. Artists travel in their minds. This is sort of the basis for alot of good sci fi art, and even astrological paintings.
