Yippee! I’ve been approved; signed the paperwork and forked over my rent & security deposit. I’ll begin renting a studio space in Oil City’s Transit Building on May Day—the maddest, merriest day of all the glad new year. In the meantime, those funereal purple walls definitely need a cheerier coat of paint. Dig those fabulous cast-iron radiators on their marble plinthses (or plinthae?). I hadn’t fully appreciated the handsome window molding last visit, either.
So, my stuff needs to be packed, I have to call the telephone/internet people, rent a truck, paint the walls, and probably a bunch of other items that I’ve forgotten about. It will all get done.
