Christine Schaefer -- Downtown Merchant

Even with the best of maps and instruments, we can never fully chart our journeys. --Gail Pool

Strange where the road leads us. I never imagined myself a year ago managing an art gallery, but...that's exactly what I'm doing right now. There were originally four of us: two artists, one theatre person, and one business manager. Now, we have lost one of the artists--the one who managed the Gallery. So...who is going to do this now? The one of us who is more or less unemployed--that's me.

And guess what? I'm LOVING it! I really like being in charge of a business--making the decisions, decorating the windows, talking with the artists and the public. It's really cool!

Of course, there's more to it than all that, but I'm finding that I really like it. Who knew???
