learning from january weather

january presented many sledging and sliding opportunities and also one for me to experience how weather conditions affect decisions to do things.  

24 hours before the january peer to peer meeting we had clear roads and a venue that would be open. there was also a warning of overnight snow.  

reflecting upon last weekend, the peer to peer meeting went ahead not only because it was booked for that day but also so i could experience the position of potentially needing to make a decision based on weather conditions.  last weekend presented an opportunity to research something, so that in the future i can make decisions based on an informed position.

we did have a meeting with a small turn out, however once again the space to talk proved invaluable for those present.

since last weekend the weather has cleared of course and a return to a regular rythym of life has been noticed.

also since last weekend i visited the latest exhibition by ivan smith in the bulls head pub just outside belper.  i found smith's work amusing and placing it in a pub presents interesting discussional points about the liberalness of a white cube gallery space.  it's well worth the drive out to the pub to take in the ambience of an exhibition in a pub space.

preparations for the art trail continue. our january social media push about the call out has been responded to well and we've had some initial contact from sara brighty about her own journey project.  we were deleighted to recieve the email, so thank you sara and we look forward to your submission.  there's still time to spend time on your own journal journey before the deadline on march 10th.
