It's been a while since we checked on artist Angel Hess and his Purple 53 truck. Mr. Hess, you might recall, spent nearly a year living at Bedford & N. 11 Street in Williamburg before heading south. A look at his blog reveals that he is in Mississippi and is heading for Texas. This post shows that life in Mississippi is not like like in Brooklyn:
...the area is the most quiet place I've visited yet. The horses are beautiful, all different sizes and kinds. Today the farrier was putting new shoes on the horses. Also Dale's mom came by, she is hilarious; some of her quotes: I live with all the puffed up cotton heads (a nursing home I'm guessing.), and she also wondered how many miles per inch I get in Purple53. The weather in Mississippi is much warmer than Georgia. When the horses are fed they are fed in a stall and they run right into their own stall on q. I think I am now the new web designer for Wind Child Farm because the last one is out of commission.More updates as the trip continues.
