The temperature is dropping here, too
You have asked: Here is where I sleep at night in the old barnhouse. It is a nice medium sized room, part of a suite that I share with Chad, a novelist from California. There are a total of 5 bedrooms upstairs in the house, 4 of them currently occupied, by writers and visual artists. There are no composers in residence right now, but we heard some marvelous Rachmaninoff the other night when a friend of one of the Ragdale trustees played the Yamaha grand piano in the composer's studio. Had a nice lunch with relatives. Packed up the second triptych and now, truly, truly blank pages hang on the end wall. Soon the stripes and pattern pieces will appear. The snow and cold are starting up again... Views from my room . The well lit door is my studio.
