Today was a wonderful, sunny-but-not-too-hot day, perfect for the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival. This is a huge annual event, with artists from all over the country, and Canada, too. Northern states are particularly well represented, but they come for more than the weather, as the presence of David Levy from Davis, California attests.
David Levy. Therein lies a tale.
Many years ago, some good friends from upstate New York gave us a gorgeous cutting board, made of strips of wood in a multi-colored zig-zag pattern. Yes, we do use it as a cutting board, although it was a good two years I think before I could bring myself to set a knife to such beauty. As we were strolling among the booths I suddenly exclaimed to Porter, "That's our cutting board!" The pattern was unmistakable, although I'll admit I actually only thought it was like our cutting board. When we returned home, however, I flipped ours over and read clearly, "David Levy, Davis, CA." California, New York, Florida—this guy gets around.I wore my Vibram Five Fingers shoes (which will eventually get their own post) and a Carnegie Mellon t-shirt, both of which drew interested comments. Another fun thing was seeing the storefront which when the renovations are complete will house our very own Penzey's!
