April 1, 1997 Tuesday
I matted and turned in the finished color pencil collage. I can’t believe it took so long to complete. I started the art project on January 9th, but for a long time it did sit without being worked on much. The work is going to contest later this month. On the back of the matte I wrote:
“This work is in tribute to all I know, both important and irrelevant, that makes up the Secondrateparadise. I may yet be stable, but at least I’m done.”
Today was Opening Day, yet but I do not know if the Cubs won their game. As for my own game tonight with Brimfield, we played Midwest Central and lost 8-4. This brings our record to 2-4. We really are better than our record, I believe, but early-on errors and mental mistakes are killing us.
Tonight I wrote more of my new story, which I have titled “The Voyage of the Relentless.”
