Peter leaps up, still in his PJs, he opens the door. “Hi!”
A decidedly mellower voice then enquires, “What exactly is this wagon anyway? And what is a “book artist?”
Peter, ever the educator extraordinaire, uses this midnight intrusion as an opportunity to share about what we are up to! He also is so pleased to be able to tell her that having a sheriff tell us to leave is EXACTLY what wandering book gypsies would expect to happen….throughout history the police have always been telling gypsies to move on.
She lets us off with a warning, imploring us to “PLEASE ASK the owners next time if you can park on their PRIVATE property.”
This is the very sleepy warehouse lot where we were visited by the sheriff last night.
Once again we visited the Lilly Library at Indiana University in Bloomington. We opened the caravan door and put out books. Curious students and faculty toured and admired. Also, a radio show host, Adam Schwartz interviewed us, mostly Peter, for a show he is developing to air later. We’ll let you know when we know about the airing place and time. It was a good introduction to the wandering ways again to talk about books, the wandering life, the beautiful gypsy wagon and the sunny warmth of spring in Indiana.
Peter and the radio guy, AJ at IU.
Now we are camping out in the knobs and hardwoods of southern Indiana. Ahhhh.
Sunset and the daffodils that EVERYONE grows in their yards here...
