Little Rossi and I snuck out of Savannah under a blanket of twinkling stars and a tide so high I thought it might just wash over highway 80 and prevent us from leaving…
We’re excited, but a little melancholy too. Our original plan was to stay in Savannah a year. But here we are packing up three years of memories, saying “see you later” to some dear friends and moving north to the Big Peach.
Savannah was a great place for me to expand my voice as an artist and I enjoyed exploring what I wanted to say through various mixed media. Savannah with it’s own mixed media palette presents itself in many layers of old and new, rich and poor, spiritual and haunted and it will always felt like home to me.
The Greenwich Bridge
Feeling blessed and ready to work on a few pieces of my dear ole Savannah. My first piece will be based on the Greenwich Bridge. A similar image graces the cover of The Land I’m Bound To by the amazing Jack Leigh.
I’m excited to break into my new box of crayons and attempt a landscape.
All these years I’ve been visiting Bonaventure Cemetery and I had no idea the bridge was there. Our friend Don Teuton took us on an epic tour of the cemetery before we left. We braved a thunder and lighting storm to commune with the dead and I loved every minute of it.
This photo was taken with my iPhone during a break in the storm when the sun brightened up the dark grey skies just enough to make the bridge glow.
The Big Peach
Most of my adult life I have lived in a town with no family. Great friends, but no family. I was really struck as to why we made this move when I registered Peyton for school and could actually list emergency contacts.
We are in walking distance of a lot of restaurants and shopping and if ambitious could even walk to Bubba and Grampa’s house. This is our new adventure. City living…
We’re still making the most of apartment living, but I’m pleased to have a room of my own.
Virginia Woolf would be proud.
I thought this post would be more about the headaches of moving. We’re still unpacking and I’ll be making a trip to Savannah to pick up a few things that wouldn’t fit in the truck. But now that we are here the headaches are gone, we’re feeling settled and it’s time to start exploring.
If you have any places in Atlanta you’d like me to check out please don’t hesitate to share.
