I helped woman the Bergamot Station Arts Complex booth during the hoopla on Saturday.
I sat there all day (10am - 4pm) and by 2pm I was getting a bit loopy.
I did some sketching to help ground myself.
In case you were wondering, Bergamot Station is running strong, despite the efforts of the City of Santa Monica to redevelop it into another hotel/condo/shopping thing (isn't there enough of that in Santa Monica already?). Full disclosure: I have a vested interest in keeping Bergamot an Arts destination, I'm part owner of TAG Gallery.
If you are a Santa Monica resident, I encourage you to learn about the LUVE Initiative (LUVE stands for Land Use Voter Empowerment).
It IS possible to fight City Hall.
