We finally finished the project, with a lovely day at the New York Botanical Garden where nothing was growing because winter.

And we appeared in the primo news source of all things cultural: Metro NY.

Now that the project is over, we are a bit at a loss of what to do with ourselves. Katherine has joined a metal working class. Allison actually wrote part of her novel. Duncan has resumed his regular griping. 

What’s next for us? A reunion trip to Marfa, Texas, hopefully. And perhaps a museum or two that doesn’t suck. 

Thanks for sticking it out with us, Dear Reader.
