      We have plans on the drawing board for a larger craft. The first consideration is, of course, whether or not it would be a good business move; but also, it would let us extend offers like this to include artists’ families. That would open it up to a lot more people, and be a lot for fun!Report

      We will see. In my 30 odd years of being a grown-up I have a pretty good record of putting together commercial endeavors — finding the right interceptions of opportunity and mutual interest needed to create thriving enterprises.

      Where good-deed-doing is concerned I seem less able to engage people’s imaginations. Perhaps at heart I am, not a busker, but a producer. 😉Report
