For five weeks now, the studio has opened its doors to new faces, new friends, new ideas and a growing expectation that a new community is being born. I am so thankful. If I could sum up how I feel from the past five weeks it would simply be that I am grateful. There have been ups and downs. Moments of elation and moments of "why on earth did I saddle myself with this responsibility?" But the more I meet you all and the more we talk I am reassured that this space has been needed and wanted and that there are plans in the making for it. I don't currently know all of those plans, but I know that they are coming.
