lorenzo's mom's stand (bitter springs, az)
Meanwhile, I finally made it back to Bitter Springs yesterday to get an images up on Lorenzo's mom's bead stand. (http://speakingloudandsayingnothing.blogspot.com/2010/07/revisiting-lorenzo-and-his-mom.html)
I'd stopped by 2 days earlier and they asked when I was going to put something on their space. I came equipped with paint and paste. When I first arrived, there was only Lorenzo's mom and one other vendor, a woman with disabling rheumatoid arthritis who was confined to a wheel chair. She mentioned she remembered seeing me there about a year ago when I first pasted Hosteeen Hank Nez late one summer's eve.
A vendor named Becky arrived and wanted to know if I was the one who's been pasting the western agency of the rez. She asked about the process and said that the vendors at Navajo Bridge over the Colorado River at Lee's Ferry want me to do work there. Becky called her kids and said "I found him - the guy who's been doing all the pictures."
As I explore what it means to build community through wheat pasting, yesterday was a nice indicator that I'm moving in the right direction.
