One of the reasons why Bill and I are in Woodstock NY now, is because we have a dream. We want to buy a property in the middle of nature with some land around so we can build a special place for creative people.
What I envision is a large studio and a couple of living spaces with all the conditions for visitors to spend time learning, relaxing and getting inspired. I would offer workshops throughout the year but I would also invite other artists from around the world to come over and teach as well.
Wouldn’t that be great? Just thinking about it makes me happy. This is a dream in progress, we’re not ready to make it happen right away, but we’re taking baby steps towards it.
Above is one of the places that we explored yesterday. We saw 5 properties in total but this is just the beginning of our search. We also want to look into other towns near Woodstock. All of these places are about 2 hours away from NYC by car. There is also the train. That’s one of the things that I love about this area. We would be living in the middle of nature, but at the same time not too far away from NYC.
“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality”.-Yoko Ono
I wanted to start the year sharing this dream with you because I believe in what Yoko Ono said. Bill, Natalie, Diego and I believe in the power or art, creativity, and human connection. That’s why we’re dreaming this dream together. Feel free to jump into our wagon, this will be a fun journey no matter how long it takes.
Happy New Year!
