Otown has done a pretty good job of promoting the arts of all sorts. The two day event coming up this weekend is a prime example. Visitors and some locals will look at and sometimes buy the works of local creatives.
Rancho Linda Vista set the arts and crafts world in Oracle spinning several decades ago - think Charles Littler, Fox McGrew, Andy Rush, Pat Dolan and a host of others. And we have Sharon Holnbach/GLOW/Triangle L, OrCA/Oracle Piano Society and the Oracle Historical Society with its inspiring "historical" story telling. There's more but you get the point.
Writers are a different kettle of fish. A mostly solitary bunch who think, gaze out windows and tap away on a keyboard - mostly by themselves. That makes Oracle authors a curiosity. They are for sure a diverse cast of characters that includes the aforementioned Rush and Dolan, the inimitable Michael Moore, architectural wizard Jeff Zucker, yours truly and, we hope, a few others of note waiting on confirmation. So while you're touring Otown save another date: December 10, (probably) 3-5 PM at OrCA.
Kaz and I moved to Oracle in 1979. The house we bought dated to the late 1940s. With little advance knowledge of the place, we set out to build a new life together, intending to settle in and raise a family.
