Sometimes it is obvious that old people need to go much slower--well this old person anyway.
Was checking on potential activities yesterday and opened the Katy Meetup website. Hit the panic button! I could feel my heart pounding all the way down to my little toe.
I may be going into Portfolio Review withdrawal since I didn't participate last year. Anyway I saw this meet up posted "Portfolio Review--What Is It?" scheduled for July 15th. OMG, July 15th? I only read the first two words and the date (picked that up in speed-reading class). I was thinking that the Portfolio review was much later in the year and I would have my usual time to lollygag around before I had to prepare and here it is in eleven more days. I can't miss it again! Rushed an email to Debi to see if they were still accepting sign-ups. Was told yes. (I'm sure she questioned my audacity at interrupting her photoshoot at the Chappell Hill Forth of July Parade with such a question.) Spent the next few hours writing an artist statement along with selecting, preparing and sending photos to Mpix. Succeeded on all counts. Whew!!! Just barely under the gun but I made it.
Then I read the rest of the meet up site post. July 15th is only a talk by Jim Fife on what to expect from the Portfolio Review. The Review is in October. Well, I have this much to say--the one thing I didn't expect from it was a heart attack.
Okay, maybe I shouldn't complain with no one reads what I write. Yeah, I get it. Good point there Beauregard.
Don't suppose Jim would like a fresh portfolio to use during his lecture. I'll have one.
