I hope the use of my Beeskeeper cloth wraps encourages you to take a few steps towards making your footprint lighter on the planet. I am a lot happier than I’ve been in a long time since I have. Maybe you will be too!
We sold our home of 26 years almost four years ago. And we haven’t bought another. But we have many rooms in our home. Some twenty feet apart, some 1300 miles apart, some 30 yards apart. We live, in RVs we bought used, in the south in coastal Georgia, US, and in the north, on Lake Champlain, an hour south of Montreal, Canada. My studio is a popup camper, also bought used. My partner does hiberate most of the winter in his workshop/bachelor’s pad in his hometown. And there’s that 36 foot 1980 Choey Lee ketch that we’re finally sailing this summer after 9 years of summer renovations.
Some of my tribes of extended family and friends are ruthless in their living of the now, in their joy of every moment. But many are so buried by their too busy social, full-of-responsibility and obligation lives that there is no time to enjoy the moment, to share a glass with them. Their calendar is too full, their mouths are full of woe-is-me, and we see them aging rapidly, drained by juggling it all.
As artist-in-residence she lives in a colorfully furnished cosy RV in the southern most tip of GA during the cold months, and in a marina on Lake Champlain for the warm ones.
Born in Montreal, Canada, Korths graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh with a B.A. in Anthropology in 1981.
In late 2012 she sold her 27 year completely renovated dearly loved home in Saranac Lake, NY where, during her 40s, she created abstract and sculptural works with handmade papers and found objects.
She, until 2012, worked for two regional agencies, one for more than 15 years and the other for 5 years, providing marketing venues and services to micro-businesses, particularly artisans.
