we left yesterday and stopped in atlanta around 8pm. kelly of kspots.com put us up for the night. after looking at new work of kelly’s (and making a sweet little trade–wall piece for wall button, and me purchasing a couple of bowls) we ventured out to little 5 points to get burgers at the vortex. after that we headed to cabbagetown to meet up with blackie and patty, checked out their sweet space, rooftop view and kudzu graffiti among other things. so great to see old friends.
today we leisurely made our way to asheville getting in just before everything closed. all talked out we decided to type our conversation for a glimpse into all this fun.
jamie: was it yesterday that we left?
nicole: um hm. here we are in asheville. what do you think so far?
jamie: i wish something was open!! good food though.
nicole: yeah, my portabella and goat cheese sandwich ruled. but you’re still burping up onions aren’t you?
nicole: good thing i can’t smell. in that little car. no but seriously. we met some of the residents at oddyssy. that was cool. loved the drawings and the phobia cups.
jamie: they were both very cool…have to stop back tomorrow for a tumbler and maybe a phobia cup for you…
nicole: yeah, but i have to decide which phobia. cats, puppets, sitting?? might have to go with sitting. i am kind of uninterested in sitting generally.
jamie: no seriously, i noticed throughout the drive..
nicole: i get so antsy. i hate sitting still. when you guys aren’t in the studio i am constantly constructing with dance moves. to gravy train. anyway, i also dug their salt kiln. it’s a nice size to fire alone.
jamie: i think we all do that…singing, dancing…its always a good time chillin in the studio alone. their spaces really were amazing.. huge too!
nicole: yeah, and also more enclosed. they could rock out in their spaces anytime. haha. anyway, think we can get a tour of highwater’s factory tomorrow?
jamie: maybe we can try… how about the fact we werent dripping sweat the second we walked into the spaces?? that was pretty sweet too no need for ac
nicole: that was nice. you really do type with one hand!
jamie: ok we are freaks lets go check out the town
ok folks, it’s almost 7:30 pm. we’re going out. heading to lexington or cincinatti tomorrow.
