I got an e mail from Belgium that my chess pieces mail art did arrive. The soap chess queen apparently proved rather aromatic. Meanwhile, my ebay "Soap Carving" book, purchased for 3.99 plus shipping, still has not arrived. I am adrift in an art room full of soap, waiting to be carved. I know how all the great sculptors felt. I have this mental image of showering with the discards.
Work is staggeringly busy right now. It's time to go work some more.
