Vol. 2 . . . September 2012 . . . No. 9
August is a bittersweet month as the “Short Season” comes to an end, but the quieter and cooler days are oh,so sweet. Over the years I have come to feel a bit expectant wondering if the usual “Opera Birds” will behere and, they were. I must say this season's Glimmerglass Festival got rave reviews from everyone!
SAYING GOOD-BYE ISN'T EASY
Putting The Chatter together every month has been an interesting adventure. It succeeded only because of the contributions of so many. Not only those who wrote articles but, also, those who volunteered their timeto proofread, give ideas and in general support this little paper. Block that metaphor, but it is time to turn anew page in my life. Not only will this be the last Chatter under my reign (if someone is interested incontinuing it – contact me) but it is also time to begin the process of stepping back from Village HallGallery. When we bought the building in 2008 it was with the attitude – to quote a Quaker expression,“Proceed as way opens” and open it did. The gallery has been successful beyond my wildest dreams. But,when one's soul is demanding attention we must listen. We aren't sure what the next story will be at 187Main, but we will, hopefully, turn it over to new caretakers that will love and nurture the building, too. Of course, we will keep you all posted through Facebook, emails and in person. The gallery will remain openuntil a buyer appears and the fat lady sings.
