I do not need to tell you how much we needed a break from this countries misery right now- Outrage after outrage and nurses, of all angels on earth, being bullied by the Rump police state - on it goes...Stella and I went out- Had a bite and wine, out on the sidewalk and then went downtown for the art walk.
perfect summer evening, perfect temperature, everyone happy to be out and out from under!
Music and Art, can't go wrong! Our funky downtown!
went to my studio for the last time before I leave - leaving it for a friend to use and to keep check on.
Art in the hallway, everything clean and tidy.
After wine and cupcakes we wander down to some other galleries- graffiti in the ally way.
Wonderful evening. Erik phoned the next morning from a hospital in Reno. He had to be helicoptered out of burning man at three in the morning. Bike accident that shredded his tendons and broke his clavicle. He may need surgery.
I sent him $$$ and he was released from hospital - to a hotel with a Betty White gambling unit in the lobby!
He rested, watched Sponge bob And ate burritos until his flight back to Portland today. He is in pretty sorry shape!
The cost of course is going to set us back a house and barn! Erik had non insurance, the sort that you pay for but nothing is covered. Sooooo, out of the pocket goes the Cash.
I can not even imagine...it will be BIG!
The night in hospital was $7,000.00 but when they realized that Erik's insurance was bogus they lessened it to 700.00- none of this is reasonable- none of this makes sense.
Another reason out of the hundreds to abhor this country and to encourage the young folk to take their talents outside of these borders.
Meanwhile "we have a problem, Houston" continues and will for months if not years to come.
Another night out with Stella is in order!
Must have wine, must have scampi in wine sauce, must have a reprieve.
