RACING TO HOLLYWOOD

I’m reminded that having a roadmap doesn’t guarantee you won’t get lost.

In fact, on Monday I was racing to the Art & Culture Center in Hollywood to drop off my last-minute submission for their All-Media Juried Biennial. Pretty sure I knew my way there, I nevertheless had my “smart” phone pointing the way—and still I arrived by a very indirect route. The point is I arrived, right? And was met by a very gracious staff person who wished me well in the competition and genuinely seemed to mean it.

Meandering routes can be pure pleasure. My dad used to say, “We’re not lost—we’re sightseeing!” Although it didn’t sound fun when he said it. But I’m dealing with something more basic right now: how to get started.

The roadmap gives me my to-do list. It tells me who I need to contact. And then there’s this yawning gap between the to-do and the doing—and the done.

As I write this I promise myself I’ll designate time, uninterrupted time, to reestablish contact with galleries I visited in 2008 in The Naked Brush Tour. I’ll even go so far as to say that tomorrow and Friday I’ll finish going through my notes from each gallery visit. Then Saturday I’ll write and send out emails to the most promising of those galleries.
I made it home safe from Hollywood. Done sightseeing, it's time to follow the roadmap.
