Veggie Voyagers

Couple travelled 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces between 7/07 and 5/08 running their 1987 Ford truck on straight veggie oil. The blog continues with a focus on the natural world and energy politics from a personal perspective

Drive By Art

The weather has finally shifted to cooler and windy. The black oaks above our house are waving around in an alarming way.

We continue to deepen our roots in the soil of our home place. Michael is back working and I’ve been following up with environmental issues brought up by the veggie voyage as well as continuing to weed, water and plant.

The other night, while it was still sweltering, we celebrated the 21st birthday of Peter Tyler with his “other mom” and then I biked downtown to the Drive By Gallery.

What the gallery owner, Sisko, does is to have a self promoting fundraiser (to pay the gallery expenses) every year. It is really a wonderful idea and community event. He and his artist sons each come up with a wall size design in plywood, then they cut it in puzzle pieces. Community members pay 10$ for the pieces then over one hundred people set to making creative art on their individual plywood piece. The artists reassemble the completed pieces and invite the public to silent bid on the pieces. The puzzles are unique, beautiful and outrageously creative. I’m including some photos so you can understand what the heck I was trying to write about.
