Collage 166

Team Tolstoy met yesterday after a 1 week hiatus. Yesterday we were Lynn, Lulu and Adrienne. We completed 14 collages so now are up to 217. Well over 25%.

A young Atlantic Works Gallery member, Nick DiStefano, wants to help out. He stopped by the studio yesterday to learn more about the project. He is a muralist and going to graduate school for graphic design. He told me about all kinds of online resources, one of which is access to free sheet music. I love including others because it makes the project more dynamic with a constant inflow of new ideas and energy. He will meet with us at our next gathering.

I got re-energized and have started to read the book again. Otto assures me that at some point I will get hooked. He wrote, "It does take a long time and a lot of pages to get to that point, and it happens very gradually, but once you get there - look out!" I am on page 438 of the translation. Pierre has returned to Helene, has become disillusioned with the Masons and for the first time, Tolstoy lets the reader have access to a diary so you can better understand Pierre's thoughts. -- Lola
