Every time my CSA gives us another batch of carrots in the winter, I think of Hocoblogs and Jessie.
Why? Because that is the name of the Burning Man camp where Jessie is the “mom”, who feeds and nurtures them. Like she nurtures the hundreds of bloggers from our county who are members of the Hocoblogs community.
I am reminded again of our community when it is announced that we are having another get together. The latest one crossing my inbox is the invite to the Horse Spirit Art Gallery in Ellicott City. We are lucky that we still have an old town Main Street around here. Where you can stroll and eat, wine and dine, find eclectic gifts, while supporting local businesses. A Friday night, 5-7, after which you can check out the local restaurants, pubs and wine bars.
Our last foray into old EC was also at a local gallery, StillLife. At that gathering, we met the owners of Horse Spirit, who were leasing space up at Westwood on Triadelphia (my neck of Howard County).
I am looking forward to attending the April 15th event. Hopefully, I will have gotten my taxes done. Now that I have a bright clean new foyer, I am looking to add a locally inspired piece to it.
I wonder if there’s a still life of carrots?
Aww, you’re so sweet! Yeah, Mama J, that’s my playa/Burning Man name. 🙂 I really enjoy the HoCoBlogs parties and hope to see you at Horse Spirit Arts Gallery on April 15th. There is a party before that, March 30th at Waxuality, http://www.eventbrite.com/e/hocoblogs-party-at-waxuality-yes-a-waxing-salon-tickets-22507972953 🙂
