Today I hiked up a mountain – it was glorious. But that was only the beginning. I was given a tour of the Banff Centre (how can everyone be so positively welcoming and kind?) and then the frenzy in my mind began. I saw theaters for play productions, rehearsals in progress, sound studios, music and television venues, a butterfly garden!!, printmaking and paper making facilities, galleries for contemporary Banff Centre produced art, a huge library, and clever artistic embellishments where ever you went!! And then there are lists of shows, artist talks, and activities that I must take advantage of… I am more confused and overwhelmed than I ever was. It’s all too much!!! I am in an artist’s heaven.
