The Art Ranger has come to a crossroads on this here blog in which we are stepping over to a PODCAST of a similar name and intent. We do hope you'll follow along and perhaps even become part of the story!
What is happening in the world (outer and inner and where we all intersect) is so very intense and overwhelming that Art Ranger is staving off paralysis by challenging ourselves with this new (more literary) journey.
oh hellllllllllllllllloo .... long time no see
plus we managed to laugh til we cried about certain realizations
Recently, we spoke to a childhood friend on the T E L E P H O N E, one who has managed an Independent (Elliott Bay Book Company) in Seattle for decades. We concluded that reading books was still one of the important things, while we muddle together/alone to recalibrate the humanity of patience not plenty, we have our minds to nourish and replenish. Books can be a salve to our sanity in which we exercise our capacity to imagine. Let's support the kind of businesses that we want to see again (later): Non-Amazon way to buy books : to perk up our mother locked in a retirement compound, for instance.
