I have been drinking chicken soup, miso soup, and tea for several days. But tonight I had a yen for hot chocolate, and it has made me feel better already. Real cocoa, made with Valharona and a little sugar and milk; not that instant stuff that is too sweet and filled with god-knows-what.
When I was a teenager and came home from a date, if my mother was up we made cocoa and cinnamon toast and I would tell her about my date (with a few omissions, of course). So there is always a comfort level with those two foods. I grew up with Droste's so it is easy to see why I am a cocoa snob.
One of my favorite readers has radar. Every time I have not posted for a while, she picks up the phone to see what is wrong. She's got a good record! This time, a wretched cold -- just when I thought I had gotten through winter feeling fine. I probably picked it up on the plane, but who knows? Tomorrow, if it is not better, I'll see about getting it checked. Chicken soup hasn't done a whole lot to help.
Meantime, I have been sitting and staring into space all week; too tired even to do therapy sewing, if you can imagine that. And I have been working on revamping my website: a daunting task that may or may not get done soon. While I've been staring into space (and reading posts on several lists) I have noticed mention of the late-lamented Art/Quilt Magazine. No point going into the reasons for its demise (which had nothing to do with the high-quality of the magazine) or whining about how our subscription renewal funds have vanished.
Instead, I'm curious about what those of you who are serious art quilt people would like to see in a magazine. What kinds of information/features/visuals/ articles/profiles/interviews/ would make you supremely happy that your needs were being met? What would you like to see omitted? What kinds of articles do you not want to see? Given your 'druthers - imagine a new magazine!
I hope you'll think about it and post your ideas because I'm really interested.
Now I'm off to sleep with the hope that I'll be somewhat better in the morning.
