Sharing Food And Art In The City

two days ago my 16-year-old teenager asked me if i wanted to meet him in the city the next day. he wanted to take me to a restaurant he liked and for coffee and to an exhibition at the art gallery. apart from feeling very honoured i was also desperate to go out since i have spent too much time at home and in the studio lately.

so we met at the station around noon and he took me to a korean grill restaurant – which seems like a funny choice for two vegetarians, but they did have some yummy food for us…

  1. I just found you through Jody Pearl’s blog…and on top of really loving all your felting and reinventing, I’m so swooned by the fact that your 16-year-old son asked you out on a date that I feel compelled to comment! What a sweet, sweet boy you have–and what a lovely sounding day with him!
