The small talk Gallery is now closed for the season. The first snow has now covered Wells. It is starting to get cold. Art is being packed up, cheques are being written, Post Office visits are becoming frequent. It was a fabulous season. I met so many people and had so much support with this little venture. But now I need to go back to the Lower Mainland and figure out how to do the rest of this. I am now getting regular injections that will be easier to do in Vancouver. I need to be with my family and to be with my little babies while I still feel well. My old friends are waiting. Lucky, lucky me! So much support has been given to me while I have been in Wells. I love this village. The upsides of this venture are many. I learned so much about running a little gallery in the North. Tomorrow I go into Quesnel to the Baker Hospital and get the injection at the Ambulatory Care Unit. The staff has been great and accommodating to my special needs. Dr. Evans has been realistic, efficient and supportive. It will be my last visit until I return next summer if I am lucky. I am here for Canadian Thanksgiving. Two dinners. Goodbye kisses and hugs to my Wellsian friends and then Tim packs the truck and hauls me to my freshly painted home.
