I would like to rent a studio and a house/cabin for one week somewhere =
in the West Coast of the US. Any suggestions?

of course i would never do it.
i am far to in love with my space to even
give up two sq feet.
hard to work around another.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A TWO MONTH TRIAL.
IF THE PERSON IS A DORK...OUT THEY GO.
joyce has done mentor work, and on the odd time
she gets a dorko...it makes for a long summer.
so much depends on how clean a person is/organized.
what do they leave behind?
do they `borrow` your tools?
then you find them in the pug mill.
it was like the sub teacher that used
my very best sable mop brush for
glue...then left it in my drawer.
hard as a rock. to me, it was like killing kittens.
you just don't do it. a fifty dollar sable brush. god.
in final desperation i made a contract with
a wonderful, motherly, lovely hand building
potter that would be my sub. the kids loved
her. and, i never came back to mess or chaos.
the kids would say...`hey mel, take a day off,
we want karen to come to school and hand build
for us.` it was a perfect balance for about ten
of my last years of teaching. she would only sub
for me. she loved it, the kids loved it, and i was
very happy too.
the only way i can share a space is with a wall, thick,
and a door with a big lock.
i do that at my farm. i built a garage, just for my tools.
i have the only key. visitors cannot borrow my stuff.
and neighbors cannot help themselves...`mel won't mind
that i borrow his senco hair nailer.` like hell i don't mind.
or, let's race on his atv's. that is really fun.
the hay creek gang is very good about taking care of things.
that is different.
the more i think about it...i think a big wall, locks and
barbed wire. (and sound proof. no odd music.)
now, that would work.
