A Good Distance From Here to There
A couple of days ago I was interested in updating some images on my Inkteraction profile. For those who are unfamiliar, Inkteraction is a social network, similar to Facebook, for printmakers. Anyway, I was browsing through which prints I had already uploaded in my photo albums when I discovered one which was not on this blog. Interesting. Somehow I had forgotten to include it with the rest of the woodcuts completed in 2011, but had uploaded it to Inkteraction out of context.
Posting an image of this print today is actually extremely fitting on a personal note. The title “A Good Distance From Here to There”, describes my most recent experience perfectly. This morning my wife Alyssa and I woke up in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, clear across the country from where I we currently live in Portland, Oregon. It is always a very long trip with no direct flights between the two cities. Portland to Houston to Pittsburgh = A very long day.
Anyways, we are here for the wedding of my friends Justin and Megean. I’ve known Justin since the 9th grade, which sadly is over twenty years ago. They are getting married on Saturday and I couldn’t be happier to be involved. Justin are Meagan are perfect for each other.
There is also a Pierogi bar at the reception. A PIEROGI BAR…. AT THE RECEPTION! It’s great to be home. I love this town. But it sure is a good distance from here to there.
Forgive the mistakes in this post if there are any (There probably are)….I’m very jet lagged this morning.
Have a great day.
